The 68th Annual Emmy Awards aired on ABC last night where Game of Thrones and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story took home several big awards, with a variety of other shoes getting some trophies as well. But one show that wasn’t vying for any awards last night was Stranger Things. Don’t worry, it’s not because the show wasn’t nominated, but rather because it debuted after the window for eligibility for this year’s awards. There’s a good chance it will get some nominations next year though.
But just because Stranger Things wasn’t nominated for any awards last night doesn’t mean the show didn’t have a presence at the awards. Before the opening of the Emmy ceremony with host Jimmy Kimmel featured an easter egg from the show, three of the child stars from Stranger Things took the stage (off the air) to sing a rendition of Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” to the crowd. Thankfully, someone was able to record the adorable musical number. Plus, Kimmel utilized the kids for a fun gag during the ceremony.

Last night ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 68th Annual Emmy Awards, and he made the typically long-running ceremony a little more tolerable with his quick wit. As is customary for the show’s host, Kimmel partook in a fun opening number that saw him meeting up with some familiar faces from the world of television, all of which were nominated in some form for the awards handed out throughout the night.
After the jump, watch Jimmy Kimmel do some carpool karaoke with James Corden, hitch a ride with a certain modern family, run into a a TV president and even ride a dragon in the 2016 Emmy opening. As a bonus, you can also watch Matt Damon showing up during the ceremony to mock Jimmy Kimmel for losing the Emmy he was nominated for last night. Read More »
This weekend brings The Legend of Tarzan to theaters, but if the reviews and box office tracking are any indicator, it’s not going to make many waves on the big screen. Thankfully, the film’s villain Christoph Waltz already has his eyes on the future. Last night the actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he revealed that he and Jimmy Kimmel recently auditioned together for the recently announced Siegfried and Roy biopic. If their audition tape is any indicator, they’re shoo-ins to take the lead roles.

Sunday night after the Oscars, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel had his usual star-studded show to follow Hollywood’s biggest night. There was plenty of fun to be had, from the premiere of a deleted scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featuring Kimmel himself discovering the true identity of Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne, to the latter star helping to sneak Matt Damon into the show.
But outside of comic book jokery and the usual Matt Damon feud shenanigans, Jimmy Kimmel also rounded up Broadway and big screen duo Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane for a new take on The Producers, this time turning Bialystock & Bloom into political consultants who concoct a plan to make money off of a candidate who is “a real trainwreck, a schmuck, a putz, a real Grade A, world-class, gold-plated nincompoop.” Yeah, you know who they’re talking about.

My excitement for the upcoming revival of The X-Files found itself tempered yesterday as a new batch of early reviews arrived. To call the early response to the limited series’ first episode negative would be an understatement. The disappointment was palpable. It hung in the air like an alien fog that you could collect in a jar and bottle in a government agency, only for it to break out and wreak havoc in the middle of the season when everyone is taking a break from the overarching mythology episodes
So faithful-but-not-blind X-Files fans need a laugh today and bless Jimmy Kimmel for trying to give us one with this amusing parody, which finds him teaming up David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson for a new case. Watch it for yourself below.

If you’ve been watching Jimmy Kimmel Live over the past few years, or if you just pay attention whenever there’s a Star Wars-related clip that makes its way online, then you know that Harrison Ford has some serious beef with Chewbacca. The Wookiee seems to have done some nefarious activities with the wife of the man who plays his on-screen pal. Ford is so upset at Chewie that he has called him a “son of a bitch” when he tried to stop by his dressing room in 2011, and a “Wookiee sack of shit” when he popped up again in 2013.
But on last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens-themed episode, Ford finally settled the feud as Chewbacca was threatening to end his life on top of Jimmy Kimmel’s studio. Plus, there was plenty of other fun stuff, like a trivia contest between the cast and a seven-year old kid, a hologram from Carrie Fisher and a Star Wars edition of Lie Witness News. Read More »
It’s a staple of the fall movie season to see an actor, usually one known for comedies, step outside of their comfort zone and deliver a powerful dramatic performance, wowing audiences and critics alike. And that movie is finally throwing itself into the Oscar race as a last-minute entry.
The first trailer for a new indie drama called Crying in a Sweater has arrived, showing off a promising tour-de-force performance from Saturday Night Live veteran Kristen Wiig as a woman struggling through life’s trials and tribulations.
