    Just saw the show and thought Jimmy coped very well. Crazy ending to the show (and love the results and Manchester wins).

    Re: And more

    Thanks for posting all materials. Because of the time difference I couldn't watch the ceremony, and now am catching up.I am very glad Oscars for Manchester. Matt, and especially Lucy, was very very beautiful at the Oscars

    Oscars

    I rarely get to see the Oscars due to the time difference but stayed up last night and what a night it was, so happy for Casey, a well deserved win. The Matt and Jimmy feud was so funny but i thought the whole show was really entertaining. The mix up at the end for best film was such a shame but not Warren's fault, he was given the wrong envelope and you could see on his face something was wrong. I loved the tourist's coming in though, that ladys face when she saw Ryan Goslin was priceless, a fun night.

    To finish off Matt and Lucy looked amazing, i love Lucy's dress, she realy does choose well

    Oscars

    WOW! I went to bed right after La La Land was announced and didn't know about it all until this morning. What craziness!

    But it's all good. Jimmy handled it very well, the crack about Steve Harvey was classic. And everyone was gracious about the mistake, so that saved it. If he does the show next year they could actually have some fun with all that. They did a nice job incorporating the 'feud', making it original and not overbearing. The bit about Kimmel 'honoring' Matt was amusing. And the food drops were good fun.

    Matt must be over the moon about Casey and Lonergan. And Matt and Lucy never looked better. Versace did wonderfully by them both. And who knew Matt could whistle like that?! A kind of crazy, memorable night.

    Re: Oscars

    A report from the Vanity Fair party:

    http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2017/02/vanity-fair-oscar-party

    while Jimmy Kimmel told Michael Shannon that he was just happy Manchester By the Sea had not been called out as the initial best picture winner.

    “Can you imagine if I had to go onstage and tell Casey (Affleck) and Matt Damon they had lost?” Kimmel said. “No one would have believed me. A fight would have broken out, and we would have still been there.”

    Fortunately, love was not lost between the two friends—and Damon, nursing an Amstel Light, greeted well-wishers including Jeff Ross, who told him, “You were funny, man.” Damon’s wife, Luciana Barroso, handed Damon her flute of champagne as she started to dance with Kimmel’s wife, Molly McNearny.

    Jimmy talks about Matt's reaction during the on-stage confusion:

    More Oscar

    A clearer description of Matt and Kimmel's intended closing bit. Kimmel is kind of endearing here. Thinking that the host needs to get out there and help clear the weird snafu up, then suddenly realizing, "That's me!" I think he's the best host they've had since Johnny Carson.

    Jimmy Kimmel Producers Reveal Oscars Secrets

    http://www.indiewire.com/2017/02/jimmy-kimmel-producers-oscars-secrets-la-la-land-moonlight-1201788172/

    Another surprise for Kimmel came a few days before the ceremony. Looking to parody a series of packages that ran all night, featuring stars discussing what films influenced them (such as Seth Rogen and “Back to the Future”), Kimmel taped a gag segment in which he, tongue-in-cheek, lauded Damon’s “We Bought a Zoo.”

    “Jimmy and I watched ‘We Bought a Zoo’ the weekend before the Oscars, which we were actually pleasantly surprised at how cute that movie was,” McNearney said. “We really enjoyed it. And we were really bummed while watching it. Just based on the title we were hoping that it would be bad.”

    Said Ricker: “We clearly write a lot of Matt Damon jokes on this show and the number one thing that we reference is ‘We Bought a Zoo.’ None of us have seen it, but that’s what we reference because the name is hilarious.”

    Damon was shown the clip the day before the Oscar rehearsal, and McNearney said “he was hysterically laughing, because Matt Damon is the world’s best sport. We love him so much. We’re not allowed to say that, but the writers love him so much.”

    I just watched a video from Entertainment Tonight, and just noticed that Lucy actually has Matts name tattooed on that back of her neck! Cool!

    I didn't know that she had a tattoo on her arm, I knew she had one on her side, and on her foot and apparently now on The back of her neck! Lol!
    What does she have on her arm?

    And I wonder if Matt has any more tattoos other than the Lucy tattoo on his arm ...

    I don't know why, but I think he would work really amazing if you have a sleeve!!

    Matt has more tattoos
    ...“Lucy” was a bonus tattoo. He won’t say what the matching one is, only that it’s “personal.”...

    And where it is possible to see Lucy's tattoo on a hand? I saw only on one side and a leg too.

    RE: Oscar shock

    And, going along with that, an article that uses Matt's facial reactions as a sort of "guide" to the Oscar mix up. So funny. This is actually an excellent idea. Matt's face should be used to illustrate all American events. Lol.
