Jimmy Fallon got a bit distracted during his latest “Thank You Notes” installment, but the “Tonight Show” host eventually got down to writing out his weekly gratitudes. When he did, the NBC late-night personality included the Oscar statue, “Star Wars,” “The Shape of Water,” “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Aquaman” among his postcard shoutouts.

Wisely, Jimmy gave a few semi-veiled plugs to Super Bowl LII and the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea — both properties that just so happen to be on his host network. Smart.

“Thank you, Oscar statue, for looking like C-3PO after getting botox,” Fallon read at one point.

His closer: “Thank you, ‘The Shape of Water,’ for not being called ‘Fifty Shades of Aquaman.'”
