Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the Oscars for the third time... and it'll be one helluva ride if a new promo for the show is anything to go by.
The 95th Academy Awards comes on the heels of last year's infamous ceremony where Will Smith slapped presenter Chris Rock and it appears that the Academy is not shying away from referencing the shameful moment.
Kimmel's promo featured a few heavy-handed jokes about The Slap in its Top Gun themed teaser that also featured Jon Hamm, Charles Parnell, and Billy Crystal.
