'Jimmy Kimmel Live' announces post-Oscars show lineup

Jimmy Kimmel may not have gotten much attention the last few weeks with the late-night departure of Jay Leno, the move of Jimmy Fallon and the arrival of Seth Meyers. But he's got one advantage: the post-Oscars show on Sunday night.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" is taped right across the street from the Dolby Theatre where the Academy Awards ceremony is held and takes full advantage of all the big-name stars in the neighborhood that evening.

This year's lineup will include Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Chris Hemsworth, Liam Hemsworth, Christoph Waltz, Ben Kingsley, Mandy Patinkin, Abbie Cornish, Barkhad Abdi, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Seth Rogen, Morgan Freeman, Andy Garcia, Adam Driver, Queen Latifah, Gary Oldman and Anjelica Huston.

Though he isn't a nominee this year, Academy Award winner and "House of Cards" star Kevin Spacey will be Kimmel's principal guest. And maybe he'll even talk directly to the camera just like Frank Underwood, the power-hungry politician from Netflix's series. This is also your advance warning for those who still haven't powered through the show's second season yet.

The last couple of years Kimmel has used the special Sunday show, airing after the Oscars telecast and local news, to premiere the "trailer" for the fake movies "Movie: The Movie" and its sequel, "Movie: The Movie Twovie."
