The Oscars have found their host for 2023. Jimmy Kimmel has been tapped to host Hollywood’s biggest night.
Kimmel will host the show for the third time, bringing Billy Crystal and Steve Martin to the forefront of hosting honors. Kimmel hosted the ceremony in back-to-back years of 2017 and 2018.
“We’re thrilled for Jimmy to score his hat-trick on this global stage,” executive producers and showrunners Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner said in a statement. “We know he’ll be fun and ready for anything!”
“To be invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honor or a trap,” Kimmel said in a statement. “In any case, I’m grateful to the Academy for asking me out so quickly after all the good guys said no.”
The 95th Academy Awards will be held on Sunday March 12, 2023 at the Dolby Theatre.
