Jimmy Kimmel Returns as 2018 Oscars Host

Despite this year’s Best Picture snafu, Jimmy Kimmel is coming back as the host of the 2018 Oscars.

Kimmel will work on the star-studded show with producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd, who were also part of this year’s ceremony. In a statement, Kimmel said, "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 favorite people, Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd. If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show!”

Michael and Jennifer added, "It’s not often you get two chances to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience and even more rare to be handed the keys to a party 90 years in the making. We always thought the idea that anything can happen on the Oscars was a cliché until we lived it.”

The Oscars will take place March 4 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
