Jimmy Kimmel Selected as Master of Ceremonies for the 2023 Oscars

This marks Kimmel’s third stint in this hosting role.

The 95th edition of the prestigious Academy Awards, popularly known as the Oscars, is scheduled for March 12, 2023. In recent months, there has been speculation about which renowned figure from Hollywood’s array of personalities would be designated as the host for this year’s ceremony. The Academy announced this week that the hosting duties would once again be entrusted to comedian and late-night presenter Jimmy Kimmel, making it his third appearance as the Oscars host.

“We are elated to have Jimmy complete a triumvirate on this global platform,” stated Oscar producers Glenn Weiss and Richy Kirshner in an official announcement. “We are confident in his humor and ability to handle any situation with grace!”

“Jimmy epitomizes the role of the host in bringing homage to the remarkable talents and productions of our 95th Oscars. His affection for cinema, mastery in live broadcasting, and knack for engaging with our international audience will result in an unforgettable spectacle for millions of viewers across the globe,” shared Academy CEO Bill Kramer and Academy President Janet Yang.

“Through Kimmel’s, Weiss’, and Kirshner’s innovative approach and seasoned leadership, the Oscars will honor its extensive 95-year legacy, the cooperative spirit of filmmaking, and our diverse, vibrant, and profoundly creative film community.”

“Obtaining the invite to host the Oscars for the third occasion is either a distinct honor or a potential snare,” Kimmel quipped in a separate statement. “Regardless, I am appreciative of the Academy for extending the invitation promptly after all the A-listers had declined.”
