Jimmy Kimmel knows how to make the stars happy! The 2017 Oscars host dropped Red Vines and Junior Mints from the ceiling during the Feb. 26 ceremony, and celebs like Taraji P. Henson, Andrew Garfield, and more got seriously excited about it. Even celebs get pumped for free candy!
Ellen DeGeneres may have handed out pizza at the Oscars, but Jimmy Kimmel took things a step further at the 2017 ceremony. During the show, Jimmy had bags of Red Vines and Junior Mints fall from the ceiling, and it was magical. “Time to find out how well those Spanx really work,” Jimmy joked.

The celebs reached up excitedly to get their hands on some free candy. Leslie Mann looked beyond happy. Andrew Garfield even stood up to make sure he got a bag, and then he sweetly tossed the bag to someone else in the audience. Casey Affleck did the same thing. Talk about being gentlemen!
Taraji P. Henson freaked out when she nabbed a little bag of the goodies. Seriously, who doesn’t get excited over free candy? Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips were equally as excited as Taraji for the free candy. Michelle should win an Oscar just for her reaction. Her BFF Busy started opening up her bag instantly. The Oscars aren’t like the Golden Globes. There’s no food until after it’s over!
Ruth Negga and Pharrell were also caught on camera with the free candy. We’re sure there were tons of other celebs totally freaking out, but you can only get so many people on camera!
Even though it was his first time hosting the Oscars, Jimmy didn’t break a sweat. His opening monologue was on point. He got in some scathing digs at Donald Trump and Mel Gibson. He also made sure to diss his nemesis Matt Damon by calling him a “fat, selfish dumbass.” Just in case you’re wondering, Matt and Jimmy don’t really hate each other. They’re actually BFFs!
