Jimmy Kimmel’s Oscars 2017 Opening Monologue: Highlights | Hollywood Reporter

“Meryl Streep has phoned it in for more than 50 films over the course of her lackluster career,” said the Academy Awards host.Following Justin Timberlake’s opening musical number, Jimmy Kimmel took the stage at the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday.”Oh good, I got a sitting ovation, awesome,” joked Kimmel. He started teasing nominees right away, first speaking about the political climate in the U.S.”I don’t have to tell anybody the country is divided right now,” said Kimmel. He said that he was advised to “bring everyone together” as a host and to “say something to unite” the country.”I can’t do that,” said Kimmel. “There’s only one braveheart in this room, and he’s not going to unite us either.” The camera flashed to Mel Gibson, who smiled. “Mel, you look great. I think the Scientology is working I really do.”The host went on to make jokes about President Trump, his faux nemesis Matt Damon, and Meryl Streep “for her many uninspiring and overrated performances.” #oscars #MahershalaAli
