Jimmy Kimmel to host Oscars for third time


March 7, 2023

Jimmy Kimmel has been selected to host the Oscars for a third time as he fronts Hollywood’s biggest event on Sunday.

The star will be hoping for less controversy than last year when host Chris Rock was slapped by Will Smith.

Kimmel took the helm in 2017 – the year of envelopegate – and 2018 before the Oscars went hostless for three years.

Oscars ratings have been falling in recent years although last year saw a slight improvement with the first full ceremony after the pandemic.

This year’s star-studded event will take place on Sunday 12th of March.
