Jimmy Kimmel Will Host the 2017 Oscars

Jimmy Kimmel is headed to the Oscars!

The Hollywood Reporter announced that the late-night talk show host would be taking over the Academy Awards next year.

This is the first time for Kimmel, who has experience hosting other events such as the American Music Awards, the ESPYS and the Emmy Awards.

Chris Rock took on hosting duties at last year’s Academy Awards and addressed the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
