Funnyman Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the 2017 Oscars.
The U.S. late-night TV personality, who hosted the Emmy Awards in September, will make his debut as the 89th Academy Awards’ main man in February.
Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd were announced as first-time Oscars producers last month (Nov16).
This year’s Academy Awards were the lowest viewed in 11 years, thanks to a diversity drama, which led to the #OscarsSoWhite campaign. Comedian Chris Rock hosted the show.
Previous hosts of the Oscars have included Ellen DeGeneres, Jon Stewart, Seth MacFarlane, Steve Martin, Billy Crystal and Neil Patrick Harris.
