With Oprah Winfrey on deck for Jimmy Kimmel’s upcoming 7th annual post-Oscars special on Sunday, the comedian took to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to express his rather overwhelming emotion at the booking.
“Our guest on Oscar night will be Oprah, THE Oprah,” he told the audience, before joking that “After making fun of me for many years, she finally agreed to come and apologize here on the show.”
Needless to say, a mild obsession seemed to be developing.
“Her new best friend is me,” he said.
Oprah’s tweet calling Kimmel “adorable” only seemed to add fuel to the fire.
“About 20 minutes in, I decided that I would give my life for Oprah,” Kimmel said. “If Oprah needed my lungs, she could have both of them. She’s like a magic person, she really is.”
“My hope is that she will adopt me as one of her dogs.”
