Who is hosting the Academy Awards 2023?

Academy Awards executive producers, Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner, have revealed Jimmy Kimmel will be returning to host the 95th Oscars in 2023.

This will mark Kimmel’s third time hosting the ceremony, after hosting in 2017 and 2018, the latter of course being his comeback year after the infamous La La Land and Moonlight debacle.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live host will now sit amongst fellow three-time hosts Jerry Lewis, Steve Martin, David Niven and Conrad Nagel, with only Whoopi Goldberg, Jack Lemmon, Johnny Carson, Billy Crystal and Bob Hope having hosted more than three of the ceremonies.

“Being invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honour or a trap. Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no,” said Kimmel.


Academy CEO Bill Kramer and Academy president Janet Yang said in a statement: “Jimmy is the perfect host to help us recognise the incredible artists and films of our 95th Oscars.

"His love of movies, live TV expertise, and ability to connect with our global audiences will create an unforgettable experience for our millions of viewers worldwide.”

Although the nominees are yet to be announced, Variety have predicted the nominees for each category, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Actor.

For Best Picture, predictions include The Fabelmans, Women Talking, The Banshees of Inisherin and the incredibly popular Top Gun: Maverick and Everything Everywhere All at Once.


For Best Director, they predict Steven Spielberg for The Fabelmans and Martin McDonagh for The Banshees of Inisherin, among others.

And for Best Actress and Best Actor, the predicted nominees include Viola Davis, Michelle Yeoh and Cate Blanchett, as well as Brendan Fraser, Colin Farrell and Austin Butler.

Academy members will vote for the upcoming Academy Award nominees from January 12-17, with the official nominations to be announced on January 24.

The 95th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 12, 2023, at the Dolby Theatre.
