Kimmel to Bring Devastating Comedy to the Oscars in 2024

Emmy Award Winner and late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel will host the Oscars for the fourth time at the 2024 Oscars on March 10. 

A Star Comedian Takes the Stage Again

After being given the honor, Kimmel said, “I always dreamed of hosting the Oscars exactly four times.” Kimmel is a television host, comedian, writer, and producer. He is a 56-year-old from Brooklyn, New York, is married to Molly McNearney, executive producer of the Oscars for the second year in a row, and has two kids. Jimmy Kimmel hosted multiple TV shows before getting his own talk show called Jimmy Kimmel Live! The show began in 2003 and has 21 seasons. Kimmel invites guests like other comedians, actors, singers, and more, whom people would want to see interviewed. 


During the 95th ceremony of the Oscars last year, Kimmel was awarded a nomination at the Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Variety Specials (Live). Also, Kimmel was given an additional nomination for his late-night show in the Talk Series category. This rounds out his career nomination to twenty.

Some of the nominees for the Oscars are American Fiction, Barbie, The Holdovers, Killers of the Flower Moon, Maestro, May December, Oppenheimer, Origin, Past Lives, and Poor Things for Best Picture. For Actor in a Leading Role, the nominees are Bradley Cooper from Maestro, Leonardo DiCaprio from Killers of the Flower Moon, Colman Domingo from Rustin, Cillian Murphy from Oppenheimer, and Jeffrey Wright from American Fiction. For the Animated Feature, the nominees are The Boy and the Heron, Elemental, Nimona, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, and Wish. For Original Song, the nominees are Barbie’s “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell, Flamin’ Hot’s “The Fire Inside” by Diane Warren, Origin’s “I Am” by Stan Walker, Michael Fatkin, Vince Harder, and Te Kanapu Anasta, Trolls Band Together’s “Better Place” by Justin Timberlake, Karl Schuster, and Amy Allen, and Disney Wish’s “This Wish” by Julia Michaels and Benjamin Riceish.

There are many more categories featuring the best of 2023.

Who Has Hosted The Most?

Academy CEO Bill Kramer and Craig Erwich, president of ABC Entertainment, Hulu, and Disney Branded Television Streaming Originals, have expressed multiple praises about Jimmy Kimmel and Molly McNearney’s return to the Oscars. Kimmel will now join the other four-time hosts, such as Whoopi Goldberg and Jack Lemmon. Only three people have hosted more times than Kimmel, Goldberg, and Lemmon. These are Johnny Carson with five hostings, Billy Crystal with nine hostings, and Bob Hope with 11 hostings. The 96th Oscars will occur on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at the Dolby Theatre. Some of the biggest names in media will be in attendance, and it will surely be a battle between Barbie and Oppenheimer for multiple awards.

If People Don’t Like You, They Can Suck My Spaghetti Meatball

Jimmy Kimmel is currently one of the best faces and voices in entertainment, especially comedy. Since he is hosting, it will certainly be one of the most comical Oscars to remember. Considering there are so many nominees and awards to be given out, the ceremony can get quite long, so it’s very refreshing to know that someone can add some comedic tones to make the show not feel so long. It is a huge accomplishment for Kimmel to have hosted 4 Oscars. Kimmel faces criticism every day, so if anyone criticizes his hosting, he would probably repeat his quote: “If people don’t like you, they can suck my spaghetti meatball.” Make sure to check out Jimmy Kimmel on the Oscars on March 10, 2024, on ABC.
