Jimmy Kimmel's post-Oscars show promises to be a hilarious, star-studded late-night extravaganza, featuring celebs like Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney and Martin Scorcese.

The late-night ABC talk show host will also be joined by Meryl Streep, Edward Norton, Antonio Banderas, Samuel L. Jackson and other A-listers straight from the red carpet for Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards.

Like last year's show, it will include comedy sketches and spoofs. Most of the celebrity guests have collaborated on Movie: The Movie, which has been billed as the biggest, greatest, most star-studded film in the history of American cinema, according to Entertainment Weekly. The folks at Kimmel dropped a tease for the skit, which includes outtakes of the fictional press junket.

In addition to Movie: The Movie, Kimmel will be in a sketch routine with Oprah. He raved about meeting the talk-show legend on his show last week, according to ABC News.

About 20 minutes in, I decided I was going to give my life up for Oprah, joked Kimmel. If Oprah needed my lungs, she could have both of them. She's like a magical person, she really is.

Billy Crystal, who is hosting the Academy Awards, will kick things off with Kimmel from Hollywood after the big awards show ends at around 12 a.m. ET on ABC. Coldplay will close the night with a performance on Kimmel's outdoor stage.

Last year's show, which included stars like Ellen DeGeneres, Jon Stewart, Tom Cruise and Ben Affleck, featured a number of comedy skits that went viral.

A sketch called Handsome Men's Club with Matthew McConaughey and Sting became an online sensation, as well as one called Hottie Body Bump Club, starring Sophia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, Lindsay Lohan and others. There was also a Toddlers & Tiaras spoof with Tom Hanks.
