Los Angeles: Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel has said he had planned to gift a pony to Hollywood legend Meryl Streep at the ceremony.

The 49-year-old presenter talked about his upcoming gig on the Good Morning America and said his wife "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" co-head writer Molly McNearney was helping him pen the much-awaited address, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"At first, she (Molly) thought, 'Oh, yeah, I could, I could probably hold a pony on a leash for three hours.' And then I think she came to her senses and decided that was not a good idea," Kimmel said, about celebrating Streep's 20th Oscar nomination.

Kimmel said audience may be exposed to some "mean tweets" being read out at the awards show.
