Jimmy Kimmel Set To Host 2018 Oscars Impelreport
Jimmy Kimmel will have the Oscars indeed, with ABC declaring Tuesday that the late-night host will emcee the 2018 honors function.
This will be Kimmel’s second back to back year facilitating the Oscars, which will see him rejoin with makers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd.
“Facilitating the Oscars was a feature of my vocation and I am thankful to Cheryl [Boone Isaacs], Dawn [Hudson] and the Academy for requesting that I come back to work with two of my most loved individuals, Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd,” said Kimmel. “On the off chance that you think we spoiled the completion this year, hold up until the point when you see what we have made arrangements for the 90th commemoration appear!”
Kimmel was obviously alluding to the now notorious indiscretion in which “Fantasy world” was erroneously declared as the victor for best picture when in actuality Barry Jenkins’ film “Moonlight” was the genuine champ.
“After only one year, we can’t envision any other person facilitating The Oscars. Jimmy’s handy charge of the stage is precious on a night when anything can happen – and does,” said Channing Dungey, leader of ABC Entertainment. “With Mike and Jennifer in charge, we’re prepared for another exceptional demonstrate that will stun, enchant and, above all, respect 90 years of Hollywood’s most renowned honor.”
The 90th Oscars will be hung on March 4, 2018, at the Dolby Theater at Hollywood and Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be broadcast live on ABC.
