Jimmy Kimmel Planned to Give Meryl Streep a Pony at the Oscars

April AlvarezFeb 23, 2017

Jimmy Kimmel stunned the world on February 21 by admitting that he might be retiring from late night soon, and now a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that he's interested in "following in the footsteps" of his pal Howard Stern!

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel said in Tuesday's Variety that he's thinking of retiring when his contract expires, dropping the bombshell news just a few days before he hosts the Oscars this Sunday. Here's what he recently had to say about why he might quit the game in the near future. He has hosted the American Music Awards five times, the Emmy Awards twice, and the ESPYs once. "Doing the show every day doesn't leave a lot of time for that", he said.

The host said that that is his goal for the show. So we couldn't blame him when he admitted to Variety that "I know I will do the show for another three years", but "it's possible that will be it".

He added that he originally wanted to give Meryl Streep a "real pony" to celebrate her 20th nomination, but his wife ended up vetoing that idea. "I have to look at his face in the audience".

"I don't want the film to lose".

He continued, "I made a decision to try to enjoy the process and be optimistic", he says. He's my arch enemy, really.

Kimmel and Damon's "feud" goes back for years. I don't know if we'll feel like we're past that stuff or if there will be some new insane thing we're all talking about-my guess is that there will probably be some new insane thing we're all talking about, so it really depends largely on what's going on that week.

"If there's something that excites me creatively, it doesn't necessarily mean something in show business", the host said.

"After the Oscars, I'm going to go home and I'm going watch the broadcast", Kimmel revealed. "I'm just sad Chris Rock isn't hosting the show, someone who's actually amusing".
