At the start of Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, Kimmel said of the two actors in the 1992 comedy “Encino Man.” Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan — was nominated for an Oscar.
“What a great night this must be for the two of you, and what a very difficult night for Pauly Shore,” Kimmel joked of the comic, which also appeared in the film. It may be time to restart . Host cracked.
that is,”one of the worst movies ever made” by at least one outlet.
Fraser (“The Whale”) and Ke Huy Quan (“Everything Everywhere All At Once”) won Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor respectively on Sunday’s show.
But no bitterness from Shore. He even offered a message of hope for those reading his posts.
“I don’t know if you all watched the Academy Awards last night, but Jimmy Kimmel teased me with his monologue. I loved it,” Shore wrote on Twitter on Monday.
“But what I really love is that old friends Brendan Fraser and Ke Hoi Kuan brought home an Oscar!”
“Don’t give up on your dreams,” Shore added.
