<p>“This is the pinnacle of Robert Downey Jr’s lengthy and remarkable career,” Jimmy said. One of the highest peaks, that is. Immediately after, the presenter came under fire on social media for his “cringe-worthy” remark when the video went viral. “The Robert Downey Junior addiction jokes were a little cringe-worthy,” remarked one social media user.</p>
<p>“Facetious talk show host Jimmy Kimmel manages to offend Robert Downey Jr. in the opening monologue!” read the second one. Downey gave a courteous “grin” and nonchalantly signed to go on.A long-running joke about his drug abuse, which he kicked over twenty-five years ago?Jimmy, keep jogging.</p>
<p>“Jimmy Kimmel is absolute trash, which is why the #Oscars ratings keep tanking,” said the third commenter. It is the lowest of lows to make jokes about RDJ’s drug addiction after he has conquered them and revived his career or himself. Kimmel is a source of shame for everybody.</p>
<p>At the Oscars in 2024, Oppenheimer, the biography directed by Christopher Nolan, dazzled with seven honors, including Best Director, Best Picture, and Best Leading Actor. During the evening, the movie won seven Oscars in total: best director went to Christopher Nolan, best actor went to Cillian Murphy, and best supporting actor went to Robert Downey Jr. Additionally, the movie took home prizes for best original soundtrack, best film editing, and best cinematography.</p>
<p>“Poor Things” made a strong Oscars impression. Emma Stone was named the best actress for the movie “Poor Things.” The movie also took up three craft awards for best production design, makeup and hairstyling, and costume design. She defeated Lily Gladstone, who was thought to be the front-runner and had won several honors for her performance in “Killers of the Flower Moon.” The Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood hosted the unveiling of the 96th Academy Awards winners. Best supporting actress went to Da’Vine Joy Randolph for ‘The Holdovers’.</p>
