-Well, guys, there's so much going on.
Let's get right to it.
It was a very busy weekend of tweeting for President Trump.
[ Laughter ]
It looks like he's taken notice of Bernie Sanders
rising to the first in polls and tweeted, "Wow!
Crazy Bernie Sanders is surging in the polls.
So what does this all mean? Stay tuned!"
[ Laughter ]
It's like he's hosting "American Idol."
Yeah, we're gonna find out after the break.
[ Laughter ]
But then, Bernie actually responded to Trump on Twitter
and said, "It means you're gonna lose."
[ Cheers and applause ]
-Oh, snap.
[ Laughter ]
-It's fun seeing two old guys
going back and forth at each other.
[ Laughter ]
It's like a presidential version of "The Kominsky Method."
Then Michael Bloomberg bought Twitter
and shut down both of their accounts.
I thought that was interesting.
It's that easy.
He bought it. He shut it down.
[ Applause ]
Trump also sent several tweets meant for Iranians in Farsi
beginning with this -- check this out.
The translation is, "To the brave, long-suffering people
of Iran: I've stood with you
since the beginning of my presidency.
We are following your protests closely
and are inspired by your courage."
Americans are like, "Wait, how are Trump's tweets in Farsi
more coherent than in English?"
[ Laughter and applause ]
-Come on. -How is that possible?
[ Applause ] Wow! Bravo.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Why don't we get any of that?
-But then another tweet everyone was talking about came from
the White House's official Twitter account yesterday.
Did you see this?
It confused people because they tweeted a photograph
of the White House with the caption,
"First snow of the year."
[ Laughter ]
Not only was it not snowing,
it was actually 70 degrees this weekend.
[ Laughter ]
But to show support, every Republican in Congress
went outside in a snowsuit and fake-shoveled their driveway.
They're like, "It's a blizzard out here, Mr. President."
[ Laughter ]
Well, this is exciting.
The Oscar nominations were announced today,
and leading the way with 11 nominations was "Joker."
[ Cheers and applause ] Yeah.
That's right.
It got the nod for Best Picture, Best Actor,
and best reason not to get a clown for your kid's birthday.
"We're getting a magician."
Along with "Joker," the Best Picture category includes movies
like "1917" and "Marriage Story,"
which is why next year some studio will try to get
nominated by making a movie
called "World War I: Clown Divorce."
[ Laughter and applause ]
But it looks like it's gonna be a tough race for Best Picture
between "Joker," "The Irishman"
and "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood."
While the award for worst picture is going to whoever
posted the snowy picture at the White House.
[ Laughter ]
And this surprised a lot of people, though.
"Frozen II" didn't get nominated for Best Animated Feature.
[ Audience boos ]
-The producer was like,
"If one more person texts me, 'Let it go,' I am gonna snap."
[ Laughter ]
"I'm gonna flip out!" [ Applause ]
Let it go, dude.
-Come on, dude.
-As usual there's a lot of controversy
about the nominations.
First of all, none of the nominations
for Best Director are women.
[ Audience boos ] Yeah.
You know there is a problem when female directors
got the same number of nominations as "Cats."
-Oh. [ Laughter ]
Boink. Meow.
-Meow is right.
And this year, 18 of the 20 acting nominees are white.
Yep. The nominees are so white,
this year's Oscars are being held at Pottery Barn.
-Really? [ Laughter ]
-That's right.
The Oscars are going to be three hours of white people on stage,
or as it's also known, the Democratic debates.
[ Laughter and applause ]
In other award show news,
next month the Grammys will have a tribute special for Prince.
That marks the first -- [ Cheers and applause ]
That marks the first time in a few days
that a prince has gotten any love from Grammy.
[ Audience ohs ]
[ Cheers and applause ]
[ Cheers and applause ]
-For your Emmy consideration.
Get this -- Gwyneth Paltrow is selling a candle called,
"This candle smells like my --"
[ Audience whooing ]
-You can you buy it online
or have the most awkward conversation at Yankee Candle.
[ Laughter ]
Yeah, women say they like it,
while men can't figure out how to light it.
We have a great show.
