Jimmy Kimmel congratulates Oscar nominees, some of you may get tweeted at by the president!

The Academy Awards honored Mahershala Ali of "Moonlight" and Viola Davis of "Fences" in early acting awards. The ceremony, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, has had gags - Red Vines and Junior Mints falling from the rafters - and political moments. Iran's "The Salesman" won best foreign language film.

“La La Land” came into the night with 14 Oscar nominations including actor, actress, director and picture. That ties the record shared with "All About Eve" and "Titanic." Also in the running tonight is "Arrival" and "Moonlight," each with eight nominations.

Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel kindly reminded all the nominees that the president was (probably) watching and tweeting.

Some of you will come up onto this stage and give a speech that the president of the United States will tweet about in all caps during his 5 a.m. bowel movement tomorrow morning.
