Who is hosting the Oscars 2017?

Jimmy Kimmel – who hosts a popular late night talk show in the US – has been tapped as this year’s host; it’s the first time he’s hosted the Academy Awards, although he’s got a wealth of experience having presented the Emmys, ESPY Awards and American Music Awards in the past.

He’s also presented ABC’s post-Oscar shows in recent years.

Jimmy joked: “They asked like 14 people and they all said no and then there was me. I absolutely was surprised.”

“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.”

He’s getting paid £12,000 for the night.
