Jimmy Kimmel will return to host the Academy Awards for a third time, the Academy announced Monday.
Kimmel previously hosted the ceremony in 2017 and 2018.
“Being invited to host the Oscars for the third time is either a great honor or a bummer,” Kimmel said in a statement. “In any case, I’m grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone said no.”
Its latest foray into hosting the awards show was a memorable one for “La La Land” and “Moonlight” best movie mix.
The upcoming Oscars ceremony will follow another famous controversy: Will Smith slapped host Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards.
Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall hosted this show.
In September, it was announced that Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner of White Cherry Entertainment had been named executive producers of the upcoming Oscars telecast.
The 95th edition of the Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, March 12.
