Jimmy Kimmel Will Host the 95th Academy Awards Ceremony

Jimmy Kimmel will return as host for the 95th edition of the Academy Awards ceremony, after presenting the show back in 2017 and 2018. The announcement was made this morning by Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner, executive producers and showrunners behind the Oscars telecast. The last time the late night star hosted the show featured the Moonlight and La La Land Award for Best Picture confusion.

“Being invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honor or a trap. Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no.” Kimmel joked in a statement.

The deal continues to expand the host’s relationship with ABC, the network behind the Academy Awards telecast, as well as Kimmel’s own show. He recently renewed the contract for said program, ensuring to stay on the air for at least the next three years. No comment was made regarding who else was in consideration to host the ceremony, which will take place on March 12th of next year.

Academy CEO Bill Kramer and Academy president Janet Yang mentioned in a statement: “Jimmy is the perfect host to help us recognize the incredible artists and films of our 95th Oscars. His love of movies, live TV expertise, and ability to connect with our global audiences will create an unforgettable experience for our millions of viewers worldwide.”
