Jimmy Kim­mel to host 90th Os­cars

Cape Breton Post - - Arts/Entertainment -

LOS AN­GE­LES - De­spite his jokes that he’ll never get asked back, Jimmy Kim­mel is set to host the Os­cars once more. The Acad­emy of Mo­tion Pic­ture Arts and Sciences on Tues­day said Kim­mel will re­turn for the 90th Os­cars with pro­duc­ers Michael De Luca and Jen­nifer Todd, the team be­hind this year’s cer­e­mony. Rat­ings for the 89th Os­cars this past Fe­bru­ary were the low­est since 2008 with 32.9 mil­lion view­ers tun­ing in, even with the drama of the en­ve­lope gaffe in which Faye Du­n­away, read­ing an in­cor­rect card, an­nounced “La La Land” as the best pic­ture win­ner. The snafu was cor­rected on stage and “Moon­light” was given the award.
