Morgan Freeman Tells Jimmy Kimmel Not To Suck In ‘Oscar’ Promo


Hosting the Oscars is absolutely nerve wrecking.

You can shine like previous Hosts Steve MartinBilly Crystal, and Ellen DeGeneres, or you can bomb like the year James Franco and Anne Hathaway did years ago.

This year’s host Jimmy Kimmel knows that, and in case he doesn’t the voice inside his head is there to remind him. Really if I had a voice in my head, it would be the legendary deep voice of Morgan Freeman. Only, In Kimmel’s case, the voice is actually there and it’s actually Morgan Freeman telling him not to suck when hosting the Academy Awards.

Hopefully Jimmy won’t suck too bad.


The 89th Annual Academy Awards airs Sunday, February 26, 2017, at 7 ET on ABC.
