The winners!

This year’s Oscars ceremony has been truly marvelous, as The Shape of Water won the Best Picture award. Guillermo del Toro’s magical story about the purest feeling, love, and that it has no labels deserved to become the best film of the year, for sure.

Gary Oldman won the Oscar for Best Actor for his role of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. Frances McDormand won Best Actress for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Jimmy’s monologue

It all started with Jimmy Kimmel’s touching and inspiring monologue. The host started with the sexual harassment topic and said that Hollywood needs to set an example.

We can’t let bad behavior slide anymore. The world is watching us.

He also proceeded with inequality issue in Hollywood. Jimmy took as an example simple statistics, which said that only 11% of movies are directed by women. He also mentioned the Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams story, where Mark had been paid $1.5 million to reshoot his scenes, while Michelle had been paid $80 a day. However, the ridiculous thing about this story is that both Mark and Michelle had been represented by the same agency. Kimmel also reminded audience of the Parkland shooting and encouraged celebrities to “change the world.”

The best puns

It wouldn’t be Jimmy’s monologue without a portion of hilarious and clever jokes. Here are 5 best moments of the favorite host:

1. Men seriously messed up last year:

We will always remember this year as the year men screwed up so badly, women started dating fish.

2. 22-year-old nominee, Timothée Chalamet, was punned by Kimmel:

Timothée Chalamet is missing Paw Patrol to be here tonight.

3. He pointed out that the Academy Awards statue is a kind of man we need more “in this town”:

Oscar is a very respected man in Hollywood, just look at him: he keeps his hands where he can see them, no penis. He is literally a statue of limitations.

4. Jimmy also reminded everyone about last year’s incident with messing up “La La Land” and “Moonlight” for Best Picture nomination:

This year when you hear your name called, don’t get up right away. Just give us a minute.

5. Jimmy also joked about long celebrity speeches:

Whoever gives the shortest speech tonight will go home with a brand new jet ski. Helen Mirren is not incuded
