In addition to those coveted golden statues, the 2017 Oscars distributed another surprise. Jimmy Kimmel had candy drop into the audience on Sunday night via little parachutes and celebs reacted to the 2017 Oscars candy parachutes in the cutest ways. According to Kimmel, inside these cute little packages from above were Red Vines and Junior Mints — you know, the most beloved movie theater snacks there are. And when these cute little parachutes fell from the top of the Dolby Theater, the celebs in the audience couldn't help but look so excited.
I don't blame them at all for finding this magical candy as pretty awesome. I'm sure the Oscars offers up a sophisticated menu of snacks, but would Red Vines and Junior Mints be on that menu? I'm not sure, but thanks to Kimmel, they totally are now. This is also not the first award show food comedy bit that Kimmel has done — while hosting the 2016 Emmys, the comedian and Jimmy Kimmel Live! host handed out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, which were made by his mother, to the audience. Sure, celebrities enjoy that treat, but they seemed adorably delighted by the Oscars' parachute candy.
Check out the celebrity reactions below.
