During tonight’s Oscar presentation, lucky moviegoers were surprised when host Jimmy Kimmel decided to have some Oscar fun and head next door to the Chinese Theater to crash their screening of A Wrinkle in Time.
Kimmel and his late-night talk show sidekick Guillermo brought along another Guillermo, del Toro to be exact as well as Oscar nominee Margot Robbie, Mark Hammill, Gal Gadot, Ansel Elgort, Lupita Nyong’o, Lin Manuel Miranda, Armie Hammer and Mary Poppins herself, Emily Blunt. Blunt stars in Mary Poppins Returns which released a new trailer during tonight’s airing.
He starts off by saying that a lot of people had been thanked but who he really wanted to thank were the people that support actors and the movies they are in…the moviegoers themselves. Check it out below:
Kimmel and Gal walked into the packed theater, mid-movie, announcing their presence by offering them goodies and snacks. They cut to a live feed of the star-studded Oscar audience who personally thanked the crowd. And if that wasn’t enough, in walks in Hammill, Robbie and the remaining Oscar gang with more snacks including a submarine sandwich and hot dogs via cannons.
Finally, Kimmel pulls up one lucky audience member and asks him to announce the next 2 presenters.
WOW! I need to start going to the movies more often!
A Wrinkle in Time starring Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Mindy Kaling, Zach Galifianakis and newcomer Storm Reid premieres March 9, 2018.
