This week, the Academy announced their selection: well-known comedian and late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who will be hosting the Oscars for the third time in his career.

In a press release, Oscar planners Glenn Weiss and Richy Kirshner expressed their excitement about having Jimmy return for his third Oscars gig. They believe his humor and versatility will make for a memorable show.

Academy CEO Bill Kramer and President Janet Yang also shared their enthusiasm, stating, “Jimmy’s passion for film, live TV experience, and ability to engage with our global audience will ensure a remarkable experience for millions of viewers worldwide.”

“With Kimmel, Weiss, and Kirshner at the helm, the Oscars will honor its illustrious 95-year past, the collaborative spirit of movie-making, and our vibrant, diverse community of filmmakers,” stated Academy representatives.

Reflecting on the invitation to host for a third time, Kimmel humorously remarked, “Being asked to host the Oscars again is either a great honor or a setup. Either way, I’m thankful to the Academy for approaching me promptly after all the top picks declined.”
