Kimmel Returning To Host Oscars

May 18, 2017 GMT

Jimmy Kimmel will host the 90th Academy Awards, earning the callback after serving as MC for one of the most memorable Oscar nights in recent history, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show will be held March 4th, 2018

Upon scoring the hosting gig again, Kimmel cracked, “If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show”

While Kimmel will return, the Pricewaterhouse Coopers accountants responsible for handing Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway the wrong Best Picture envelope will not. The Academy will retain the accounting firm, but have instituted a series of safeguards to prevent another mix-up, including the addition of a third balloting official in the control room and a ban on Pricewaterhouse Coopers accountants using electronic devices during the ceremony (the accountant who handed over the wrong envelope had been using social media throughout the night)
