The 2017 Oscars Mean Tweets Video Lets Celebrities Talk Back To Trolls, Or Just Laugh At Themselves — VIDEO
Let's be honest, we all saw this coming. Of course Jimmy Kimmel released Celebrities Read Mean Tweets: Oscars Edition during the 2017 Academy Awards broadcast. The video compilations are one of the signature bits on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, so I couldn't have been the only person expecting (and hoping) he'd bring a new video to the awards show. And even with those expectations, the host delivered.
The video, which you can watch below, features a ton of the 2017 Oscar nominees, as well as all-time great actors. Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert DeNiro, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and more were able to read mean tweets about themselves and talk back to the haters, like DeNiro did by cursing off someone who mocked his age, and Portman did by using her pregnancy to show that she is not someone who wouldn't order an entree at lunch.
Other celebrities agree with the tweets, such as Jeff Bridges, who apparently doesn't wear pants as often as we'd think. However, most of the featured stars just chose to laugh at the absurdity of the comments, especially Lin Manuel-Miranda and Eddie Redmayne, who couldn't help but crack up in response to the supposed insults.
The Oscars edition of Mean Tweets was a great way to break up some of the awards, but it does pose a problem: How is Kimmel possibly going to top this?
