Jimmy Kimmel’s annual post-Oscar show was a glitzier version of his usual Live! With guest stars ranging from Tom Hanks to Lindsay Lohan, it was a shrewd shambles, artfully artless.
Among the taped bits was a groaner that seemed left over from Kimmel’s Man Show days: the “Hottie Body Hump Club,” with an array of female stars, including Lindsay Lohan, Scarlett Johansson, Minka Kelly, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Emily Blunt, and Sophia Vergara, all gamely “exercising” suggestively. It seemed to go on for a loooong time, culminating in the Lohan cameo. Lindsay looked a bit worn out — from the exercise, I’m sure.
There was also a King’s Speech parody featuring Mike Tyson teaching a George Bush to speak better.
Tom Hanks, still trussed into a tux and his usual genial self, told a few stories about his own Oscar statue, made some self-deprecating jokes about Bonfire of the Vanities and The Man With One Red Shoe, and performed in a nice little Toddlers and Tiaras parody with a funny Ron Howard cameo.
