26 of the Funniest Tweets from Wednesday, February 21, 2024

This year’s Oscars could have looked a lot different had it not been for one particular glass-ceiling-shattering film. Jimmy Kimmel, who is returning for his fourth go at hosting, told the Los Angeles Times that he didn’t think he would take the gig again. He explained that his trepidation was equal parts the “work that goes into (the Oscars)” and the difficulty of “making accessible references to movies the audience may not have seen.” The latter point was a reference to a joke he made about Moonlight at the 2017 ceremony that “made it clear that the vast majority of the room had not seen the movie.” It wasn’t until last year that he cracked the code and relied heavily on a movie that everyone had seen: Top Gun: Maverick. This year’s movie that got Kimmel back on the mic? None other than Barbie. Kimmel said he left the movie theater thinking, “Well, maybe I’ll do this again. Because at least I have a point of reference with everyone.” We’ll see if Kimmel sticks the landing on Sunday, March 10th. 

Kimmel’s not the only big name in Hollywood who needed some convincing to return to something he’s done before. Before conjuring up more scares in Tim Burton’s upcoming Beetlejuice sequel, Michael Keaton had a specific caveat for reprising the iconic role. The actor told People that he was “totally not interested in doing something where there was too much technology,” and wanted it to “feel handmade.” Burton naturally indulged the request, which resulted in what Keaton called “enormous fun.” The practical effects hit the big screen in all their glory this September. 

You don’t have to convince me to tell you that the timeline is chock-full of hysterical tweets. Today’s funniest include those about the secret to making Madame Web, the world’s worst trip-sitter and someone who knows that math problems belong on LinkedIn.
