Jimmy Kimmel has been announced as host of the 96th Academy Awards.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host has signed on to MC the awards for a fourth time, reports Deadline, with the ceremony set to take place in March 2024 and televised on ABC.

"I always dreamed of hosting the Oscars exactly four times," the 56-year-old comedian joked in a statement.

Jimmy previously led the 2017, 2018 and 2023 telecasts, with the 2017 ceremony remembered for the infamous La La Land and Moonlight best picture announcement mix-up, known as 'envelope-gate'.

Jimmy joins the ranks of Whoopi Goldberg and Jack Lemmon as a fourth-time host.

The only stars to host more times include Johnny Carson (five), Billy Crystal (nine) and Bob Hope, who has hosted the Oscars a whopping 11 times.

The 96th Academy Awards will be held on 10 March at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
