Without a doubt the most memorable moment from The Oscars this year was when La La Land was announced as the winner for Best Picture only to seconds later find out that Moonlight had actually won the coveted title.
While many of us are still reeling from that moment, ABC is already prepping for next’s year’s show and have brought back producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd who in turn have already convinced the person who they want to see host the show to sign a contract and that person is… Jimmy Kimmel. Yay. ABC network president Channing Dungey said in a statement:
“After just one year, we can’t imagine anyone else hosting The Oscars. Jimmy’s skillful command of the stage is invaluable on a night when anything can happen – and does. With Mike and Jennifer at the helm, we’re ready for another unforgettable show that will dazzle, delight and, most importantly, honor 90 years of Hollywood’s most prestigious award.”
Kimmel himself seems to be excited about his return, stating, “If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th-anniversary show!” Great. I’m sure we all can’t wait to see it.
