Will Hillary Clinton Appear at the Oscars? Host Jimmy Kimmel Says 'Possibly'
The rumor comes as new survey reveals 66 percent of Trump supporters turn off awards shows when they get too political.
The red carpet has officially been rolled out for Sunday’s Academy Awards, and many are wondering whether Hillary Clinton will be one of the esteemed guests to walk on it.
Outside Hollywood’s Dolby Theater, many are buzzing about Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel, who said in a recent interview that Mrs. Clinton could be making a cameo appearance at the highest-profile award show of them all.
He told Variety that she may "possibly" appear at the show, adding: "I’m not saying that to be coy. I’m saying that because I don't know."
President Trump is expected to be a big target at the Oscars. He's already been chastised at all the other award shows like the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, and the Grammys.
A poll released by The Hollywood Reporter and the National Research Group said 66 percent of Trump supporters say they have actually turned off awards shows when the speeches get political.
In the past, the president has been obsessed with the Oscar telecast, and never shy about his opinions about the show.
In 2014, he called it "amateur night," adding, "Who the hell is in charge of this production?"
In 2015, he called the show a "sad joke," and wanted to make the Oscars great again by offering his services as host for the following year.
Trump was incensed about a 2012 red carpet moment, when comedian Sacha Baron Cohen dumped ashes on E! host Ryan Seacrest.
“This third-rate character named Sacha Baron Cohen thought he was being cute and funny when he threw ashes at Ryan Seacrest. Now, I know Ryan Seacrest — he’s a great guy — and you could see he was visibly upset. It was disgraceful,” Trump said in a video he posted on YouTube.
What Trump did not mention was that he and Cohen have a history. He once walked out of a 2003 interview with the actor, who was dressed as his Ali G character for his series, The Ali G Show.
During Wednesday’s daily press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked if Trump will be watching the Oscars Sunday.
Spicer said with a grin that he believes Trump will be busy hosting the Governor’s Ball Sunday night and the first lady is excited to welcome the country’s governors to Washington D.C. for the event.
“I think that is where the president and first lady will be focused on,” he said.
