Jimmy Kimmel proved to be a gracious host at the 89th Oscars as he provided candy for the crowd.

The "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host checked up on the Hollywood stars during the awards ceremony.

"How are you guys holding up? Are you hungry? Can I get you anything? Is there anything that anybody needs?" Kimmel asked.

Kimmel noted that none of the stars in attendance had any candy.

"This is a show about the movies and you can't have movies without candy," Kimmel said. "It's un-American, right?"

The host then called in a special airdrop of candy for the crowd.

"If you close your eyes and wish very hard," Kimmel said. "Little bags of Red Vines and Junior Mints will appear from the sky raining down on you."

Little bags of candy fell from the ceiling as the crowd laughed and reached for the treats.

Kimmel joked, "Next year, we should give out the awards this way."

While interviewing Sunny Pawar, who starred in "Lion," Kimmel lifted the child actor up like the famous "Lion King" scene as more candy fell from the ceiling.

"Lemonheads and Mike and Ikes," Pawar shouted while being held in the air.

But Kimmel wasn't done yet. He called in more special airdrops as bags containing cookies and doughnuts rained down for the audience.

"Now that you have doughnuts, release the coffee!" Kimmel joked.
