Jimmy Kimmel Prepares to Host This Year’s Oscars Ceremony
In just a few days, the biggest names in Hollywood will be heading to the Oscars. For the first time since 1961, the carpet is champagne-colored instead of the classic red. On Oscar night, the stars will walk along the carpet, which is 50,000 square feet long and weighs 630 pounds. This year's host, Jimmy Kimmel, was on hand for the Oscar preparation outside the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Kimmel joked that he's ready if someone tries to repeat Will Smith's infamous Chris Rock slap.
