Jimmy Kimmel reveals major tradition of celebrities after award shows

Jimmy Kimmel has clarified that there is one iconic burger joint in Los Angeles that has become a staple for celebrities on Oscars night. In an interview with People magazine ahead of hosting the Academy Awards for the fourth time on March 10, he said, "The award show tradition is In-N-Out after the show."

Kimmel explained the reason he assumes it has become a tradition post-award shows is “because when people are in L.A., one of the things on their list is to go to In-N-Out — and there are a lot of people that are in L.A. just for the Oscars — so they wind up going like, ‘Okay.’”

He added, “Also, you get very hungry, so In-N-Out is definitely the award show tradition. Nothing against McDonald’s, but on award show night, it’s In-N-Out.”

Paul Giamatti, winner of the Golden Globe for Best Male Actor in a Comedy or Musical Picture for his outstanding performance in The Holdovers, was recently spotted at a Westwood In-N-Out. He was seen eating hamburgers, fries, and soda with his trophy, girlfriend Clara Wong, and representatives.

The Oscars trailer released last month also referred to his post-awards show In-N-Out Habit, with Ryan Gosling mentioning it in one segment. “I got In-N-Out! It’s kind of this cool social media trend where you get it before the Oscars.”

Kimmel proceeded to correct the actor, adding, “Hey Ryan, actually, I think the trend is to have In-N-Out after the Oscars. Actually, after you’ve won the Oscar.”

“Well, that’s not going to happen,” Gosling said in response, throwing his drink and bag of food out of the car. “Good thing Greta’s got director in the bag.”
