Jimmy Kimmel Returns As Oscar Host For The Third Time

Talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel will be returning to front the 95th Oscars in 2023, marking his third time presenting at the ceremony.

Kimmel, who has hosted the event twice before, in 2017 and 2018, will preside over the ceremony in March, the show’s producers said Monday November 7.

In 2022, the Academy hired three main presenters; Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, and Regina Hall – while for the three years previous, 2019-21, there was no official host.

“Being invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honor or a trap,” Kimmel said in a statement. “Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no.”
