Oscars 2017: Jimmy Kimmel Set to Host for First Time!

Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the upcoming 2017 Academy Awards ceremony in February!

This will be the first time that the Jimmy Kimmel Live host has has hosted the ceremony. He previously hosted the Emmys this past September.

For the last few years, Jimmy has hosted a live “After the Oscars” special on his show, but it doesn’t seem likely that we will get one of those specials this time. We’ll have to wait and see if he’ll do double duty!

Last year’s show was hosted by Chris Rock.
