But first, some hot dogs, please:

Jimmy Kimmel's intention was rather sweet. "There's another group of people that deserves our thanks even more. Without them, none of us would be here. So, I want to take a moment to thank the people who actually go to see the movies you make. Tonight, we thank the moviegoing public," he said, moments before he announced that the audience at the theatre was live at the Oscars. Twitter's reaction was somewhat mixed:
"Where do we get those hot dog cannons though," wrote a user, while another added: "This is literally the coolest group of people ever! But if you stopped my screening of A WRINKLE IN TIME I'd be P***ed."

Jimmy Kimmel even had a movie goer named Mike announce the next presenters - Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph. He did good.
Jimmy Kimmel returned to the Oscar stage for the second time in a row - as did Best Picture presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Thankfully, there was no repeat of Envelopegate. The Shape Of Water was announced as winner of Best Picture and was not later replaced by Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
The Oscars were held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday evening, which was Monday morning in India.
