The 95th Academy Awards will be hosted by Emmy Award winner Jimmy Kimmel. This was announced on Monday, November 7, by the organizers.
“We know he’s going to be funny and ready for anything,” said producers Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kishner. Writes about it RIA News.
Jimmy Kimmel commented on the news with humor. He noted that the proposal to become the presenter for the third time is either a great honor or a trap. The comedian expressed his gratitude to the US Film Academy for the fact that they turned to him so quickly “after all the worthy ones refused them.”
Kimmel has already hosted the Oscars in 2017 and 2018. It is believed that with his appearance it will return to the traditional format. For the past three years there has been no host. Since 2019, the awardees have received the award from the hands of famous actors. At the same time, there was no host in between their appearances.
Jimmy Kimmel is a comedian, screenwriter, producer and actor. He hosts his own late-night entertainment show.
The next Academy Awards will be held in Los Angeles on March 12, 2023.
It was previously known that Russia will not send the film for an Oscar. This decision was made by the Presidium of the National Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of the Russian Federation.
