Jimmy Kimmel Made it Rain Candy and Cookies at the Oscars

Guests were showered with sweet treats during the three-hour long awards show

Stars were able to snack on Red Vines, Junior Mints, and cookies during the show.

Last year, Jimmy Kimmel hosted the Emmys and recruited the cast of the hit Netflix series Stranger Things to hand out 7,000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the audience. The sandwiches, made by Kimmel’s mother, also included notes and came with juice boxes, cookies, and apples.

Last night, Kimmel hosted the Oscars and pulled a similar stunt by showering guests with parachutes of Red Vines and Junior Mints, E! reported.

Some of the lucky stars who caught a mid-Oscars treat were singer Pharrell Williams and Empire actress Taraji P. Henson, whose excitement was caught on camera.

Later in the night, he also delivered cookies to the A-list guests in the same fashion.

Unfortunately, Henson didn’t receive the second batch of treats, but playfully asked Hidden Figures co-star Octavia Spencer, “Are you sharing?”
