Jimmy Kimmel to Host the Academy Awards for 4th Time


Yes, it’s Oscar season.

The good news is ABC has unsurprisingly tapped Jimmy Kimmel to host the show for the 4th time. The Oscars air March 10, 2024.

This Oscars will center on many current movies including Barbie, Oppenheimer, Killers of the Flower Moon, Air, Poor Things, and a few more.

Kimmel piloted the 2023 show to revived ratings. He’s the right guy to balance snarkiness and a sense of importance.
