We’re no where near the middle of outrage from proposed congressional budget cuts, the most visible of which would eliminate funding for staples like the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Sesame Street in particular made headlines switching from PBS funding to HBO, though both it, and Jimmy Kimmel have now placed Big Bird in the spotlight to address the historic cut.
If you’re a tourist in Hollywood and desperate to catch some celebrity sightings, you’re probably going to hop on a tour bus. If you’re on one of those on Oscar night you likely won’t see anyone famous walking the streets, unless, of course, you’re a part of a Jimmy Kimmel prank.
Following a rather, um, energetic opening number in which Justin Timberlake transformed the 2017 Oscars into a vaguely kid-friendly dance club featuring his song from Trolls, Jimmy Kimmel took the stage to deliver his opening monologue. In case you missed it, never fear because ABC has graciously uploaded it for your viewing pleasure.
