Jimmy Kimmel doesn't rule out Clinton cameo at Oscars

Jimmy Kimmel doesn't rule out Clinton cameo at Oscars

At a certain point, I'd like to have a little more free time.

This Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony is quickly approaching, and to promote the festivities Jimmy Kimmel took part in an interview with Variety.

As the longtime host of ABC's flagship late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live, the same network that carries the Academy Awards, it may have made sense to turn to Kimmel sooner.

"I think this job is a grind, and best-cast scenario, a marathon", said Kimmel.

"I'm going to do everything I can to make sure that he (Damon) doesn't win or doesn't know that he won".

Kimmel, 49, often spends as many as 70 hours per week working on his late-night program, with the host's obligations including re-writing his monologue and exhaustively researching the stars he brings on the show, according to Variety.

"It's too early to write political jokes, because the things that are happening today will feel dated", Molly McNearney said.




He added that he originally wanted to give Meryl Streep a "real pony" to celebrate her 20th nomination, but his wife ended up vetoing that idea.

"I just pestered him until he had no choice", Kimmel says of persuading Bush.

"However you want to look at it, I would like him to go home with nothing", Kimmel concluded.

He said: "If there's something that excites me creatively, it doesn't necessarily mean something in show business".

This can really be an all day and all night thing, if you want it to be, and you might as well, right?

While it seems like Kimmel is expecting to make an exit, 2019 is a long time away, and there will probably be one or two more shifts in the time slot before he makes his final decision. "That said, my subconscious still tells me it's going to be a disaster".

The Oscars will air live from coast to coast Sunday, Feb. 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET / 5:30 p.m. PT on ABC.
