But his 'therapist' can, at least
Jimmy Kimmel still has last year’s Oscars on his mind.
In a new promo for this year’s Academy Awards telecast, Kimmel talks about the trauma of hosting the 2017 Oscars, which ended with the wrong best picture winner being read, and the awestruck team behind Moonlight — the actual winner — shuffling onstage amid total chaos.
“You know, I dream about it every night,” Kimmel says. “I can’t even open the mail because of all the envelopes. It just piles up.” In fact, he admits he sees the Oscar statue everywhere, burns his tux, and feels like he’s losing his mind. “The worst part is,” he concludes, “they want me to do it again.”
Of course, all of this just falls on deaf ears. As it turns out, Kimmel’s been talking to Warren Beatty, himself an Oscar winner and one of the presenters, along with Faye Dunaway, who read the wrong name and ushered the La La Land crew on stage last year. Beatty’s moved on much faster than Kimmel has, it seems: “I don’t care what you do,” he tells the repeat Oscar host. “Just get out of my house.”
Watch the full promo above. The 90th Oscars telecast airs Sunday, March 4, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
