Jimmy Kimmel Reveals What Really Went Down During That Oscars Gaffe

'It was the weirdest TV finale since ‘Lost.’'

Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel shared his take on the Best Picture gaffe during Monday’s broadcast of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!.” 

The comedian described the moment that “La La Land” was mistakenly announced as the winner of the 2017 award instead of “Moonlight” as “the weirdest TV finale since ‘Lost.’”

Kimmel also explained how he was due to end the show sitting in the audience next to actor Matt Damon. But amid “mass confusion,” he took to the stage and stood there “like an idiot feeling bad for these guys, but also trying really hard not to laugh, to be honest.”

Check out his entire explanation in the clip above.
