If you’re a fan you’ll be happy to know Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the 2017 Oscars. He previously hosted the Emmys in 2012 & 2016.

If you don’t recall …last year’s Oscars dropped really bad in ratings so basically ABC’s trying to save it with Kimmel. Oscars will take place Feb. 26th 2017.
In August, ABC renewed a deal with the Oscars to broadcast the Academy Awards through 2028, extending its pre-existing agreement by eight years; Kimmel’s show, of course, also airs on ABC.
