For his second time hosting the Academy Awards, Jimmy Kimmel once again opened up the Oscars with his captivating dry, sardonic comedy. In his opening monologue he pokes fun at A-list actors and nominees in a hilarious black-and-white video, last year's Oscar envelope mix-up, and even Mel Gibson in What Women Want. However, Kimmel also didn't shy away from touching on controversial topics that's current'y plaguing Hollywood including shots at Harry Weinstein, pays tribute to the #TimesUp movement, and of course targets Donald Trump.

He even throws jabs at the Oscar statue and the male dominated Hollywood, pointing out the larger-than-life Oscar statue on stage and said, "Just look at him. He keeps his hands where you can see them. Never says a rude word. And most importantly, no penis at all. He is literally a statue of limitations. And that's the kind of men we need more of in this town!"
