Andrew Garfield and Ke Huy Quan gave hilarious reactions to Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue at the Oscars 2023.
The 95th annual Academy Awards ceremony, widely popular as the Oscars started at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California on March 12, 2023. This ceremony, honouring the year’s best performances on film was hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel, his third time assuming the role.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live! comedian kicked off his Oscars monologue with a Top Gun: Maverick bit that saw Tom Cruise’s Maverick eject him from his fighter plane and onto the Dolby Theatre stage. After crew members removed his parachute, the comic got down to business.
“I am happy to see that Nicole Kidman has finally been released from that abandoned AMC, where she has been held captive for almost two years now,” Kimmel’s joke landed well.
“If anyone in this theater commits an act of violence at any point during the show, you will be awarded the Oscar for best actor and permitted to give a 19-minute long speech.”#Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel addresses “the slap” in his opening monologue.

There were frequent knocks at Babylon losing $100 million, classy shout-outs to snubbed films Till and The Woman King, and a slight jab at the Academy for not nominating any women, as is their wont, in the Best Director category.
Then came the host’s joke, a “Scientology jab at Top Gun: Maverick star Tom Cruise.”
Matt Damon didn’t rush to the stage to mock-slap Kimmel. Instead, addressing Will Smith slapping Chris Rock, he said “If anyone in this theater commits an act of violence at any point during this show, you will be awarded the Oscar for Best Actor and permitted to give a 19-minute-long speech.” A prolonged bit of shouting-out people in the audience as Kimmel’s was humorous which deserved thanks in no small part to the wonderful Andrew Garfield.
