Late-Night Hosts Talk About The 2018 Oscars Race

Jimmy Kimmel, who is hosting the Academy Awards ceremony for a second time, noted Tuesday on his ABC late-night show that awards season went into "full bloom" with the morning's Oscar noms reveal.

"I can not wait to see which movie accidentally wins best picture", Kimmel said, referencing last year's shocking best picture mixup.

Host Jimmy Kimmel reacts to the news that the wrong movie had been announced as victor of the Best Picture award during the 89th Annual Academy Awards, Feb. 26, 2017, in Los Angeles.

Of The Shape of Water's 13 nominations - the most of any movie in 2017 - Kimmel said, "I like that movie and finally, Hollywood is recognizing a monster other than Harvey Weinstein", referring to the tsunami of sexual misconduct allegations involving the producer that has emerged since October, and joked that the fantasy film had been nominated for "Outstanding Achievement in Fish Penis Design".

The last shutdown , in October 2013, lasted more than two weeks and more than 800,000 federal employees were furloughed. On Sunday, Zinke handed out maps and greeted visitors at the Washington Monument and Thomas Jefferson Memorial.

When Fallon mentioned the awards show, he acknowledged The Shape of Water, Get Out, and Lady Bird's nomination in the Best Picture category. 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. "These are the first Oscars in the wake of the #MeToo movement, which means there will be some changes", he admitted. However, the late-night host received a lot of laughs when he joked about the movie earning a nomination for designing the best genitalia. "For instance, the Oscar statue will now be fully clothed", Colbert said. "People who were long overlooked are finally getting their due", he said during Tuesday's NSFW segment. "I hope he's seen Get Out".

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

As Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. views it, #OscarsSoWhite is getting replaced with #OscarsSoSorry. The Oscars also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
