Oscar names the host of the 2017 Academy Awards

Oscar names the host of the 2017 Academy AwardsAmerican TV presenter Jimmy Kimmel has been named as the host of the 2017 Academy Awards.

Late night talk show star Jimmy Kimmel will host the 89th Academy Awards for the first time.

TV presenter of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” has previously hosted numerous awards shows, including the Primetime Emmy Awards twice.

In the opening monologue of Monday’s edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Kimmel poked fun on the nomination to emcee the ceremony.

“A lot of things happened to me over the last two weeks. I got a tummy tuck. They still give those. I had my eyes done and I think they look great, right? I also went to Dry Bar, I got an up-do. I had my whole body done. I read online today that in February – I will be hosting the Oscars,” he said.

“The producers and the Academy went through a long list of names – and in the end, they decided that – since I am already right across the street from where they do the show – I was the closest person to host,” Kimmel said. “I guess I have to get a tux now. Or maybe I’ll wear jean shorts? Has anyone ever done that?”
