Kimmel says hard to tell what the mood will be for Oscars

  • Jimmy Kimmel Oscars

"I think, ultimately, how can you argue that any of this is anything but good?"

Added Kimmel: "I will tell you something: It is really amusing because I felt like Seth made a joke last night that was specifically for me and my wife and we were on the couch watching it".

What about Harvey Weinstein jokes?

"I felt like Seth made that joke specifically for me and my wife", Kimmel said, confirming he had, in fact, tuned in to see how Seth handled that and how it was received.

"You can but you just don't know".

As to whether or not Kimmel will joke about Weinstein, he noted "who's to say Harvey Weinstein is going to be alive in two months?"

The Apple Watch, which runs a derivative of the iPhone's operating system is not affected, according to the company. Patches against Spectre, in the form of an update to web browser Safari, will be released "in the coming days".

While the bulk of Seth Meyers' monologue material focused on Hollywood's reckoning with gender inequality issues, a few opening jokes touched on Washington politics. "You can't force things in and what people were talking about [Sunday] night is what he commented on, and I think that's always the way to go".

Asked about a potential Oprah Winfrey presidency - the subject has galvanized social media since the mogul brought the house down with her Globes speech Sunday night - Kimmel said he was fully on board with the entertainer's potential turn to politics. That said, given the choice between Oprah and our current president, I'm on the bus with Oprah traveling the country encouraging people to sign up and vote. "We would have to call her 'President Winfrey, ' also, you realize that?"

Kimmel made waves a year ago with a strong defense of Obamacare, but Kimmel demurred when it's suggested he helped "save" Obamacare.

Though he's been credited by some with derailing Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare by speaking openly about the health struggles of his infant son, Kimmel said he has no "plans to run for anything, anytime ever". "Obviously you're preaching to the choir in that situation", he said of the joke.

Critics wondered what he learned from his first time hosting the Oscars. One of the additional challenges they have this season is if and how to callback to last year's Best Picture debacle when the wrong title was mistakenly read first (and was later corrected to "Moonlight)".

Oscar nominations will be announced January 23.
