Jimmy Kimmel Returns to Host Next Year’s Oscars.

By Flora  /  17 May 2017 (Wednesday)

For the second consecutive year, late-night talk show favourite Jimmy Kimmel will return to host the 90th Academy Awards telecast.

Despite the biggest snafu that happened at Hollywood’s biggest award show last year, which Kimmel jokingly took the blame for it (though we all know that it wasn’t his fault), he will host the upcoming ceremony on March 4, 2018.

"Hosting the Oscars was a highlight of my career and I am grateful to Cheryl, Dawn and the Academy for asking me to return to work with two of my favourite people, Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd," said Kimmel. "If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show!”

"Our Oscars team this year delivered a show that hit every high note," said Academy CEO Dawn Hudson. "Jimmy brought back the essence and light touch of the greatest hosts of Oscars' past. Mike and Jennifer's love of movies is infectious and touched every aspect of the show. This is the perfect team to lead us into the ninth decade.”

The 90th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 4, 2018, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood.
