Oscars 2018: Host Jimmy Kimmel takes aim at Harvey Weinstein
Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel aimed barbs at Harvey Weinstein at the first Academy Awards since Hollywood's sexual harassment scandal unfolded.
Opening the Oscars, Kimmel said: "The Academy took action last year to expel Harvey Weinstein from their ranks.
"There were a lot of great nominees, but Harvey deserved it the most."
But unlike at the Baftas and Golden Globes, where stars wore black as a show of defiance and solidarity, there was no such dress code at the Oscars.
