Jimmy Kimmel is stressed over striking “the right tone” as host of the Oscars this Sunday.The late-night host and returning Academy Awards host informed Good Early morning America‘s Paula Faris Tuesday that he likely will not take on Hollywood’s extensive sexual misconduct scandal from the stage during Sunday night’s show, choosing instead to make individuals laugh.
“This show is not about reliving individuals’s sexual attacks,” Kimmel said. “It’s an awards show for people who have actually been dreaming about maybe winning an Oscar for their entire lives.

And yet, they elected Donald Trump president of the United States, “he stated.” So I believe that argument has quite well leapt out the window. “He also extended an invite for Trump to appear on his ABC show, and said he ‘d be curious to ask him”why he’s altered his opinion on a lot of important things.
