Comedian Jimmy Kimmel has been chosen to host the prestigious 96th Oscars, marking his fourth time leading the Hollywood awards ceremony. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made the announcement on Wednesday, expressing their excitement for Kimmel’s return.

In a statement released by the Academy, Kimmel jokingly mentioned that hosting the Oscars exactly four times had always been a dream of his. It seems that dream is now coming true, and we can expect him to bring his signature humor and wit to the stage once again.

The 96th Oscars is scheduled to take place on March 10, 2024, and will be aired on ABC, which is owned by Walt Disney. The event will be broadcast worldwide, allowing audiences from all corners of the globe to tune in and celebrate the best in filmmaking.

This won’t be Kimmel’s first rodeo as an Oscar host. He previously helmed the 95th Oscars held at the Dolby Theater last year. His show was highly praised for its back-to-basics approach, aiming to highlight the resurgence of moviegoing following the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, his efforts earned him an Emmy nomination for his outstanding performance as emcee.

Kimmel has a proven track record when it comes to hosting the Oscars. He previously hosted two consecutive ceremonies in 2017 and 2018, showcasing his ability to entertain both live and television audiences with his quick wit and comedic timing.

As we eagerly await Jimmy Kimmel’s return as Oscar host next year, there’s no doubt that he will once again deliver an unforgettable evening filled with laughter and celebration. So mark your calendars for March 10, 2024, because this is one awards show you won’t want to miss!
