'Late-Night' show hosts weigh in on Oscar nominee surprises

After nominees and awards pundits reacted to the Academy Award nominations announced on Tuesday, late-night hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O'Brien also took the chance to weigh in on the surprises, snubs and shoo-ins.

Kimmel will be hosting the 90th Annual Academy Awards on ABC this March, despite the infamous Moonlight/La La Land mix-up previous year that instantly made Oscars history and turned presenters Warren Beaty and Faye Dunaway into a punchline.

The two-time Oscar host also expressed his desire to see which film would "accidentally" win the Best Picture award.

He talked a little about the year's most honored film, Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water", "which racked up 13 nods including Best Picture, Best Director, and Outstanding Achievement in Fish-Penis Design".

"'Shape of Water' got so many nominations".

CNN wasn't alone in who had trouble keeping the actual Best Picture nominees straight, as Jimmy Kimmel slipped in an extra one as well.

Kimmel also acknowledged the historic nominations of Greta Gerwig, who became the fifth woman and Jordan Peele, who became the fifth African American, to be nominated for Best Director. And as Jimmy Kimmel reviewed the nominations Tuesday night, he might have been giving a sneak peek of sorts as to what his second turn as host will look like. Colbert stated that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences selected two of Entertainment Weekly's Top Entertainers of 2017, so that they could pit their Twitter followers against each other, and whoever loses the golden statue would make their fan base freak out on the social media network.

Meanwhile The Daily Show's Trevor Noah opened his show by praising the diversity in the nominations this year. It's a very tongue-in-cheek Oscar promo that leans into the mistakes of yesteryear - though the Academy has made significant changes to its system to make sure a mix-up like last year's never happens again. "I hope he's seen 'Get Out'".

As Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. views it, #OscarsSoWhite is getting replaced with #OscarsSoSorry.

"Meryl Streep was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in The Post", Colbert told viewers.
