During Sunday night's Academy Awards, host Jimmy Kimmel pulled a prank on a group of people who thought they had taken a bus to tour a museum.
"Some of you will get to come up here on this stage tonight and give a speech that the president of the United States will tweet about in all caps during his 5 a.m. bowel movement tomorrow", Kimmel said.
Things definitely didn't end in a way anyone expected or could have predicted during Sunday Night's Oscars ceremony, and now, more information I coming to light about how the show was supposed to wrap up.
"That's gone, thanks to him". "(She) has stood the test of time due to her very uninspiring and overrated performances", Kimmel quipped, referencing a tweet Trump sent in January following a speech from the actress at the Golden Globes. "The couple from Chicago, I am actually ordained to marry people, so if they are here, I will marry them".
"Nice dress, by the way", Kimmel told the actress."Is that an Ivanka?"
Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, whose film The Salesman won for Best Foreign Language Film, boycotted the Oscars in protest of President Trump's travel ban and had Anousheh Ansari, the first Iranian in space, accept the award on his behalf.
The President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences celebrated the Oscar winners by hinting at Trump's ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries.
The "Mozart in the Jungle" star from Mexico presented the award for Best Animated Feature Film and slammed Trump's border wall plan in the process. Even when they're not expecting to meet them like at the Oscars.
Even more fascinating was the fact that every filmmaker who was nominated in that category released a joint statement a day before the ceremony dedicated to eschewing racism and guiding people to work towards "fostering unity and understanding".
Shortly thereafter, Beatty himself took the microphone to explain that he was given the wrong card to read, and held up the correct card - one that clearly indicated Moonlight was the winning film.
"We are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life", said Davis.
