Unlike the Golden Globes, the Academy Awards confine celebrities to their seats — pretty much ensuring that everyone is starving throughout the three-hour-plus telecast.
So, host Jimmy Kimmel decided to take a page out of Ellen DeGeneres’ book and please the people with some good old-fashioned movie theater food during the show. In between Oscar speeches, Red Vines and Junior Mints rained down upon the stars like gifts from sponsors in “The Hunger Games.”
Reminder: Kimmel pulled a similar stunt last year while hosting the Emmys, when he enlisted the “Stranger Things” kids to hand out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made by his mom to the audience.
As always, Taraji P. Henson was the most excited of the bunch and held onto her goodie bag for dear life. (P.S. We’re just pretending it’s an actual Oscar, right?)
