As expected, the Oscars did not shy away from politics on Sunday.
Between host Jimmy Kimmel, presenters and winners, President Donald Trump and his executive order attempting to ban immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries were on the tip of everyone's tongue.
"I want to say thank you to President Trump. Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars was racist? That's gone, thanks to him," Kimmel joked during his hilarious opening monologue which was ripe with political commentary.
While addressing "Elle" star Isabelle Huppert, who is French, Kimmel said, "I'm glad homeland security let you in tonight."
Kimmel also reminded the stars lucky enough to win an Oscar, "You get to come up on stage and give a speech that the President of the United States will tweet about in all caps at five in the morning."
He also mocked Trump for blocking select media outlets from the White House briefing room last week. "If there's anyone here from CNN or the New York Times ... I'd like to ask you to leave the building right now. We have no tolerance for fake news," Kimmel said.
The biggest slam of the night came from the mind of Asghar Farhadi, but the lips of Anousheh Ansari, the first Iranian to go into space, who accepted the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film on Farhadi's behalf. According to the statement Ansari read, the "Salesman" director decided to skip the Oscars "out of respect for people in my country and those of other 6 nations that have been disrespected by the inhumane law that bans immigrants from entrance to this nation."
"Dividing the world into the 'us' and 'our enemies' categories creates fear — a deceitful justification for aggression and war," his statement continued.
Of course, the funniest jab at Trump came in the middle of the show when Kimmel expressed concern that the President had not tweeted about the show yet. "We're more than two hours into the show and Donald Trump hasn't tweeted about us once," Kimmel said while mocking Trump's Twitter addiction. "I'm starting to get worried about him."
