Hollywood makes anti-Christian movies to upset people like Vice President Mike Pence, not to make money, Jimmy Kimmel revealed as host of the 2018 Academy Awards Sunday.

Kimmel made the declaration while praising a nominated movie about a 17 year-old gay boy who has an sexual relationship with a 24 year-old man in the movie, “Call Me By Your Name” starring Timothee Chalamet

Kimmel said the movie was unsuccessful at the box office – but, that’s okay, because Hollywood makes movies to offend people with conservative, traditional values like Pence:

“Another young actor nominated for the first time is Timothee Chalamet, who looks very dashing tonight. Look at that tux. Are you having fun? This is a big deal. Timothee is missing "Paw Patrol" to be here tonight. Don't worry, Ryder and his team of pups saved the day. Timothee is the star of a small but powerful story called "Call Me By Your name" - which did not make a lot of money.

“In fact, of the nine Best Picture nominees, only two of them made more than $100 million. That's not the point. We don't make films like “Call Me By Your Name” for money. We make them to upset Mike Pence.”
