Jimmy Kimmel to host Oscars 2018

Jimmy Kimmel to host Oscars 2018

The Oscars will be held on March 4 at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre. The Academy was also moving aggressively to bring back Kimmel for a reprise as host.

The host of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" show, which is aired in India on Star World and Star World HD, also joked about the miscue on Twitter.

Funnyman Jimmy Kimmel is returning to host the 2018 Oscars after impressing awards show bosses with the way he handled the Best Picture blunder in February (17).

Kimmel seems to have impressed Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs with his deft handling of the mix-up during the best picture announcement when "La La Land" was mistakenly declared as the victor over "Moonlight". And producer Jennifer Todd is already thinking up ambitious plans for the sets and the clips to celebrate the 90th Oscars ceremony.

This year's telecast ended in chaos after the wrong movie was announced as best picture, but neither Kimmel nor the producers were at fault for the fiasco.

Jokingly taking the blame for the biggest snafu in the history of the Oscars hasn't hurt Jimmy Kimmel one bit.

Jimmy also confirmed the news in his own statement, where he poked fun at the infamous mishap at this year's show when the wrong victor was mistakenly read out for the coveted Best Picture award. "Mike and Jennifer produced a lovely show that was visually stunning".

"If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show!" he added.

They said in a joint statement: "It's not often you get two chances to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience and even more rare to be handed the keys to a party 90 years in the making".
