While Cena appeared hesitant to walk out with no clothes, Kimmel somehow managed to convince him to do so. He forced him out of the wings to present the award. In the viral video, Cena could be seen partially covering himself with an envelope featuring the winner of Best Costume. After announcing the category, the video focussed on the nominations and in that brief moment, Kimmel draped him with a massive curtain. When all of this was done, Cena presented the Best Costume award to Poor Things. 

The video which immediately went viral raised eyebrows on social media.

This year's Oscars began on a fun note with Jimmy Kimmel's monologue. This is his fourth time hosting the ceremony. Kimmel started his monologue addressing Barbie's snub at the 96th Academy Awards. He looked at director Greta Gerwig who shared a laugh as he shifted his glance at the Academy members and said, "Don't laugh, you did not vote for her." 

He also spoke about director Christopher Nolan's no phone rule, eliciting laughter from the Oscars attendees. Kimmel then shifted his focus to Ryan Gosling, who is nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role as Ken in Barbie and Best Original Song (I'm Ken), saying, "Ryan, you are so hot." Ryan will also perform later in night with reportedly 65 background dancers.
