Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel discuss the 2021 Oscars – Deadline

One night after the Oscars, late-night hosts Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel expressed their thoughts on the unconventional 2021 ceremony, offering mixed prospects.

By far the nicest at the awards show was Noah, who said the Oscars “had a lot of cool times” despite the turmoil of a global pandemic.

“I mean, we got to attend an awards ceremony at a train station, right?” The daily show the host noted, referring to the location of Union Station which allowed the show to take place safely. “We saw Regina King come in, and we even got to see Glenn Close audition to be in Cardi B’s next video.”

As Noah mentioned, the 93rd Academy Awards also saw a lot of history being made. While Nomadland Chloe Zhao became the first woman of color to win the award for best director, and Minariof Yuh-jung Youn became the first Korean person to win in an acting category, his friend Daniel Kaluuya became “the first person to get an Oscar and a beating from his mom on the same night,” Noah joked.

He then cut a clip of Kaluuya talking about celebrating life and being grateful that his parents had sex once, so he could live. “Ah, ah, ah… Did this guy just say ‘sex’ in front of his African mother? Yo, let me tell you something. Forget to say, “ My parents had sex.’ Just to say that sex in front of African parents will instantly be rewarded with a whooping cough of monumental proportions, ”he joked. “Actually, I’m sure the only reason she didn’t whip Daniel’s ass was simply because there were too many white people present.

Either way, Kaluuya’s comments reflected a pleasant sense of intimacy among those present at the ceremony. “If you ask me, I think this is the future of awards shows,” Noah said. “Forget about the agents, the managers and the crowds… I want to see Brad Pitt’s dad holding up his embarrassing baby photos in the tub.”

Like Noah, Colbert couldn’t help but talk about Kaluuya’s sexual commentary. “Daniel, you don’t bring up your parents’ sex life in your Oscar acceptance speech,” he said on The late show. “You dramatize it in a two hour movie, so you can earn your second Oscar.”

Colbert also spoke of the historical achievements of the night. But for him, the highlight was seeing his own conductor and musical director, Jon Batiste, win the Oscar for Best Original Music. Batiste shared the Disney / Pixar Oscar Soul with composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

“What an incredible achievement,” said the host, “especially considering for some of us that the biggest achievement of the last year has been washing our sweatpants once a month.”

From Colbert’s perspective, the rest of the ‘scaled-down’ ceremony turned out to be ‘lesser Oscar news’.

“It reminded us of the glamorous roots of the Oscars,” he said unmoved, “when Charlie Chaplin accepted his Oscar from a vagrant at the bus depot.”

Pulling the most hits at the Oscars was Kimmel, who hosted the show in 2017 and 2018. In tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kimmel opened his monologue by talking about the rapper’s DMX memorial service.

“Speaking of elaborate funerals,” he pivoted, “did you watch the Oscars last night? Few people did.

As Kimmel noted, ratings for the ceremony “fell” from 23 million last year to less than 10 million this time around. “How can something so aroused put so many people to sleep?” he wondered.

Certainly, said the host, the producers of the Oscars tried to mix things up, in a year without parallel. “It was the Oscars that finally answered the question, ‘What happens when you don’t cut the acceptance speeches? He continued. “It turns out they last a very long time.”

Kimmel later turned to the biggest surprise of the night, which saw the late Chadwick Boseman lose the Best Actor award. “Everyone thought it would go to [him]. They even saved the category for the end of the series, assuming it would be a big emotional moment to wrap up, ”Kimmel said. “But instead of Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Hopkins won the award for best actor for playing a man with dementia in The father-and he was so committed to his role that he forgot to appear at the Oscars.

According to Kimmel, by the time Hopkins won his second Oscar, the actor was already asleep. “Which isn’t a good sign for network TV,” he said unmoved, “when they say, ‘Hey, Anthony, you could win tonight,’ and he’s like, ‘I’m going watch it on youtube tomorrow. “”

In keeping with tradition, Kimmel concluded his Oscar segment with interviews on the event’s red carpet, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel Live!Guillermo Rodriguez, in which he catches invisible tequila shots with stars like Paul Raci, Riz Ahmed and Viola Davis.
