Watch Kimmel’s Lie Witness News Hype Fake Oscar Nominees

“Oscar Edition” of fake reporter bit finds strangers discussing love for ‘Citizen Kane 2,’ Channing Tatum in ‘Koala Cop’

With the 88th Academy Awards on Sunday, February 28th, Jimmy Kimmel Live! hit the streets to grill strangers’ fake movie knowledge in a hilarious “Oscars Edition” of “Lie Witness News.” The premise is simple: stick a camera and microphone in front of people’s faces, ask them about absurd, non-existent film moments from the past year and watch them feign knowledge in an attempt to gain cool points.

The first person admits to loving Citizen Kane 2 and doesn’t blame the title’s lack of nominations on the lead performance of Kevin James (of Paul Blart: Mall Cop fame). Elsewhere, people praise the “fierce” atmosphere of Tom Cruise-starring Little Man, Big Motorcycle and Jennifer Lawrence’s “unpredictable yet very moving” choice to star in 19-Year-Old Mother of Four

From there, the selections grow even weirder – from Sir Ian McKellan in Vampire Dog to Channing Tatum’s starring role in Koala Cop – but that doesn’t prevent anyone from lying through their teeth.
