Salma Hayek, Ashley Judd and Annabella Sciorra-who all spoke out against Harvey Weinstein previous year after his actions adversely affected their lives and careers-picked up on the theme with a special presentation: They introduced a short film in which directors and writers talked about the importance of all kinds of diversity in film.

HOLLYWOOD was sprinkled with stardust Sunday as the film industry's A-listers came out for the Oscars, hosted by late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel, whose opening monologue targeted disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Tessa Thompson arrives at the 11th Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards Luncheon on Thursday, Mar. 1, 2018 in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Whether "Call Me by Your Name" star Armie Hammer will make it to the Academy Awards appears to be up in the air, as he shared an image of himself attached to an IV drip after missing Saturday's Independent Spirit Awards, where his co-star Timothee Chalamet won the best male lead award, due to illness.

Kimmel, 50, has said little about his plans and is ambiguous about whether he will address the elephant in the room. Below you can find all the details on what to expect tonight, the nominees, what channel to watch, the red carpet times, live stream details and more.

"But what happened with Harvey and what's happening all over was long over due".

"We can't let bad behavior slide anymore".

Political bombshell: Carles Puigdemont abandons bid to reclaim presidency of Catalonia
Catalan parliamentary legal experts and the Spanish government as well rejected the notion of him governing from Brussels. He subsequently fled into self-imposed exile in Brussels.

"The world is watching us. We need to set an example".

The Time's Up campaign against sexual harassment in the wider workplace, spearheaded by celebrities including Reese Witherspoon and Ava DuVernay, is expected to be recognized in some form during Sunday's ceremony. But now, as we approach another Oscar night, what a difference 12 months makes.

Kimmel also highlighted the pay disparity between men and women in Hollywood and praised the Oscar statue of being the ideal model for the Me Too movement, because its hands are where they can be seen and it lacks a penis.

"The Academy kicked him out and after they did I was curious so I looked it up, the only other person to be expelled was a character actor called Carmine Caridi, in 2004, who was kicked out for sharing screeners".

"Never says a rude word". He is literally a statue of limitations. "And that's the kind of man we need more of in this town", he said, drawing uproarious laughter from the Dolby Theatre's audience of film luminaries.

Prior to the show, Oscars producers had said that they wanted to shine a light on performances rather than concentrating on politics. Connelly said along with "The Shape of Water", "Get Out" has a good change to pull a surprise Best Picture win. SO THANK YOU TO @waymanandmicah (their wonderful assistant, Patrick), @storyofmailife (her assistant Mia, who I am excited to meet!), and @marktownsend1 (and his incredible assistant, @alexhenrichs).

In spite of Hollywood's past mistakes, Kimmel made it clear that the goal is to move forward, calling it a "night for positivity".
