WHEN HE GAVE HIS OPENING MONOLOGUE ...
… and addressed the star-studded audience while making a few jabs at Mel Gibson, Justin Timberlake, Matt Damon (of course) and Manchester by the Sea. Of the Best Picture contender, Kimmel was quick to sum up the film's cry-inducing vibe: "Customers who bought this movie [on Amazon] also purchased Zoloft."

WHEN HIS FEUD WITH MATT DAMON HIT A FEVER PITCH
The ongoing "feud" between the longtime friends continued on Oscars night — starting off in Kimmel's opening monologue: "When I first met Matt, I was the fat one." Kimmel also addressed the fact that Damon, a producer on Manchester by the Sea, gave up his lead role in the film to Casey Affleck. "He made a Chinese ponytail movie instead," said Kimmel of Damon's movie, The Great Wall.

WHEN HE MADE A SUBTLE DIG AT PRESIDENT TRUMP
His opening monologue may have been chock full of shade thrown at the Trump administration, but Kimmel's introduction of Cheryl Boone Isaacs — the President of the Academy — undeniably led to giggle fits in the Dolby Theatre. His intro: "A president that believes in both the arts and sciences."

WHEN HE SURPRISED THE AUDIENCE WITH BAGS OF CANDY
Kimmel knows what the people want: Twizzlers and Junior Mints, which just happened to come down from the ceiling via parachutes and onto the laps of Meryl Streep, Taraji P. Henson, Pharrell and more.
He followed up the surprise with doughnuts and cookies, delivered the same way. "It's like a horror movie," Kimmel joked. "Gluten is literally falling from the sky."

WHEN HE GAVE SUNNY PAWAR A LIFT MID-SHOW
In what can only be described as aww-dorable, Kimmel enlisted the pint-sized Lion actor to help recreate an iconic scene from The Lion King. And if that wasn't enough, the cute moment was made sweeter with another surprise candy parachute delivery. Be still, our hearts!

WHEN HE HANDLED THE BEST PICTURE MIX-UP WITH CHARM
When La La Land was mistakenly awarded the Oscars' highest honor — an award that was eventually given to the cast and crew of Moonlight — Kimmel took to the stage to share his reaction.
"I blame Steve Harvey for this," said Kimmel, citing Harvey's mishap during the 2015 Miss Universe pageant. "I knew I would screw this show up, I really did. Thank you for watching. I promise I'll never come back."
