    Variety is reporting that Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the Oscars! Thoughts?

    Too bad he’ll be presiding over the least-seen Oscars ever.

    Eurgh, what a boring choice. We waited Christ knows how long for…….this?

    Wonder how many Trump gags will be made by him at *this* ceremony? Yawn. Yawn. Yawn.

    Thank god the sweet relief of seeing a La La Land sweep will make this Oscars great!

    Ugh. Such a shame because I used to really like him but he has become an unoriginal pony these last few years and he is generally weak when hosting anything other than his talk shows.

    I thought he was pretty excellent at this years Emmys but I hate it when the same person hosts multiple award shows close together, especially within the same year.

    A safe, competent, uninspired selection.

    Tina and Amy – boring
    Kevin Spacey – boring and smug
    Hugh Jackman – boring and gay

    No one here could name someone who would not be boring or smug or gay on some level.

    Tina and Amy, and Spacey would certainly not be boring choices.

    I guess this is what they’re doing now. Getting late night talent to pull double duty, b/c why not. CBS is on the verge of overkill with James Corden. It’s their year for the Emmys, so unless they get someone else to host the Tonys, he’ll be hosting three award shows next year. As for Jimmy Kimmel, I was impressed by his recent Emmy turn, so I am good with this. Would’ve been better to get another POC to host, but that’s not my business.

    Yes!! I love this choice!! Jimmy Kimmel has been on my list of dream people who’ve never hosted the Oscars before, so I’m so glad he finally has his chance!

    As I posted in the article, what took them so long? We all know ABC’s vetoing other late-night comics besides Kimmel is why Jay Leno never hosted the Oscars *and* why they can’t bring in Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Conan O’Brien, Trevor Noah, etc. today. It may have even been the REAL reason why David Letterman never came back; his first gig wasn’t nearly as disastrous as he claimed it was over the years…
