Every year, Jimmy Kimmel invites the Scripps Spelling Bee champion on to his show for a star-studded face-off (by "star-studded," we mean that some Kimmel regulars run the sketch, this year featured Cousin Sal and Guillermo) to see if the late-night host can take down the newly crowned kids. This year provided a bit of a bigger challenge than normal, considering that the Scripps was won by two winners.
If there was one thing last week's box office winner, Disney's revisionist tale 'Maleficent,' was missing, it was rap stars. There's not a single rapper in the entire film, it's all just Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie and wood nymphs and spinning needles and such. No Ice Cube. No Ice-T. No Eminem. And this injustice will not stand -- because 50 Cent is out to correct it with his new feature film, 'Malefiftycent.'
Listen, Tom Cruise, we don't doubt your power or your intellect or your marketing acumen. You are one of the world's biggest stars, and you have been for a very long time. But to claim, on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' no less, that you invented the worldwide movie premiere tour that so many big blockbusters still embark on is, well, it's questionable. We have no way of proving you wrong, though perhaps some aged publicist will come out against you, claiming that they invented it, but probably not, because you're Tom Cruise.
For the seventh (seventh!) round of his "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" segment, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' host Jimmy Kimmel rolled out quite an assortment of celebs to read your, well, mean tweets. From Julia Roberts to Andy Garcia to Ashton Kutcher, these stars know you hate them, and now, after reading your tweets, they know exactly why you hate them.
When Kendall Jenner took the stage at this weekend's Billboard Music Awards, things seemed promising. The younger sister of the Kardashian siblings was tasked with introducing the band 5 Seconds of Summer (admittedly, kind of a hard name to say). While she was able to get a lot of facts down about the band (they are a band! they are on the Billboard charts!), she totally fell down on actually saying their name, which is kind of an essential part of introducing someone. Oops!
A "selfie" is a picture with just one person -- yourself, duh -- but a twofie is a selfie taken with, get ready for this, two people. We know, this is a photographic concept that is both brilliant and totally life-changing, so of course late-night host Jimmy Kimmel is the one to bravely pioneer the world of twofies on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' Even better, Kimmel roped in guest Pharrell (sans hat) to both try it out and use it as a means of competition in a "Twofie Shootout." It's going to get snappy.
Was Jon Hamm ever not insanely handsome? The 'Mad Men' and 'Million Dollar Arm' star took to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' last night to share all sorts of zingy memories, including a whole bit on his prom experience. Unlike, well, everyone else in the world, Hamm's prom picture is a stunner -- the man looks like a happy, handsome model.
Turns out, Sally Field and Julia Roberts were probably the best people for late night host Jimmy Kimmel to use for his first round of 'Celebrity Curse-Off,' because these lovely ladies, these top-tier Hollywood stars, these role models know how to curse in ways that would make sailors blush.
You know what? Jimmy Kimmel has some weird ideas for fun celebrity games and manipulating social media. Okay, Jimmy Fallon? You don't have the corner on this market! In a wickedly clever combination of embarrassing celeb game and social media wackiness, Kimmel rolled out his "Tweeter Totter" on last night's show, alongside his guest, 'Modern Family' star Julie Bowen.
"I knew that!"
The idea behind this Katy Perry-centric skit on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' sure sounds cute -- our host brought together both the pop star and one of her biggest fans for a round of "Who Knows Katy?," a chirpy game show about Perry trivia -- but the execution of it was mildly terrifying.
