Jimmy Kimmel will host the 90th Academy Awards, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced.
The late-night host will reunite with producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd to emcee the Oscars for a second consecutive year.
“Hosting the Oscars was a highlight of my career and I am grateful to Cheryl
and the Academy for asking me to return to work with two of my favorite people, Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd,” Kimmel said.
He also poked fun at the infamous ending of the 89th Oscars, which saw the wrong film awarded Best Picture. “If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show,” Kimmel added.
