Jimmy Kimmel, a well-known American television host, comedian, writer, and producer, will return to host the Oscars on March 12, 2023.

After hosting the 89th and 90th Academy Awards in 2017 and 2018, respectively, the upcoming Oscars will mark Jimmy's third time as a host. Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner serve as executive producers and showrunners. Molly McNearney is also one of the executive producers.

According to Screen Daily, Academy CEO Bill Kramer and Academy president Janet Yang, said, "Jimmy is the perfect host to help us recognise the incredible artists and films of our 95th Oscars. His love of movies, live TV expertise, and ability to connect with our global audiences will create an unforgettable experience for our millions of viewers worldwide."

They also added that with "Kimmel, Weiss and Kirshner’s fresh perspective and masterful guidance, the Oscars will celebrate its rich 95-year history, the collaborative nature of moviemaking, and our diverse, dynamic and deeply creative community of filmmakers.”

Jimmy said, "Being invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honor or a trap. Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no.”

It may be noted that Chris Rock hosted the 2022 Oscars. The ceremony triggered a wide controversy after Will Smith walked onstage and slapped the latter. He slapped Rock as he made fun of Smith's wife Jad Pinkett Smith's bald head, which she had been shaving due to alopecia areata since 2021.
