Late-Night Hosts Weigh In on Oscar Nominee Snubs, Surprises

In a new promo for this year's Academy Awards telecast, Kimmel talks about the trauma of hosting the 2017 Oscars, which ended with the wrong best picture victor being read, and the awestruck team behind Moonlight - the actual victor - shuffling onstage amid total chaos.

Kimmel will be hosting the 90th Annual Academy Awards on ABC this March, despite the infamous Moonlight/La La Land mix-up past year that instantly made Oscars history and turned presenters Warren Beaty and Faye Dunaway into a punchline. The therapist is finally revealed to be none other than Beatty-the presenter who read out the wrong victor and was responsible for "LaLaLand" being mistakenly named Best Picture.

The Guillermo del Toro-directed romantic thriller about a mute woman who falls in love with a mysterious underwater creature received 13 nominations for this year's Academy Awards. "I like that movie and finally Hollywood is recognizing a monster other than Harvey Weinstein".

Tuesday's Oscar nominations had late night hosts talking. Kimmel was referring to the Best Picture announcement error at the 2017 Academy Awards, where Faye Dunaway accidentally announced La La Land as the victor when it was Moonlight that was the actual victor.

"I think they missed this picture, it was the best picture of 2017", he said before showing an image of Trump with his wife and son looking at the solar eclipse.


Meanwhile The Daily Show's Trevor Noah opened his show by praising the diversity in the nominations this year.

Both hosts broke down some of the notable nominations like Jordan Peele and Greta Gerwig both getting directing nods for their Best Picture nominees "Get Out" and "Lady Bird", respectively. "This year's Oscars are so diverse, they are renominating La La Land just so it can have its win taken away again", he joked.

"These are the first Oscars in the wake of the #metoo movement, which means there will be some changes". "For instance, the Oscar statue will now be fully clothed". "I hope he's seen Get Out".

"Meryl Streep was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in The Post", Colbert told viewers.

One nomination that didn't surprise Wood Jr.?
