Jimmy Kimmel to host 90th Academy Awards

Jimmy Kimmel to host 90th Academy Awards

Jimmy Kimmel will be back as host of the Oscars when the 90th edition of the annual Academy Awards ceremony is held in March.

Jimmy Kimmel also referred to the infamous gaffe, which saw presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announcing the incorrect victor after being given the wrong envelope at the end of the ceremony, in his tweet on Tuesday, shortly after the news of Oscars 2018 host went viral.

Jimmy Kimmel also couldn't help but say a few words about what turned out to be the biggest awards flub in history this past February.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Tuesday, .

Jimmy Kimmel will return as Oscars host in 2018, becoming the first consecutive host of the awards since 1992, when Billy Crystal wrapped a four-year run.

Producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd will also return next year. I thought their production was solid, with a nice mix of celebrating the legacy of film and honoring the year's nominees, but "envelope-gate" seemed to signal that they wouldn't be back.

Motorola Moto C and Moto C Plus are now official
It also highlights that the Moto E will come with 5-inch display along with 2.5D protection and a fingerprint scanner. The company is reportedly adding up new smartphones to its Moto C, Moto G, Moto E, and Moto Z and Moto X series.

Armed rebels in C. African Republic city agree to leave
By midday Monday, the United Nations mission in Central African Republic said "assailants have agreed to leave the city". Early Saturday, another Moroccan soldier died in a similar attack on the base and a nearby Muslim-dominated area.

Microsoft's new tools help devs manage cloud deployments on the go
An interesting evolution has taken place over the past eight years or so since AWS began wooing businesses to the public cloud. Part of the reason for this shift is that enterprises were never comfortable with Amazon as their only public cloud option.

"Our Oscars team this year delivered a show that hit every high note", said Academy CEO Dawn Hudson.

"You know, everyone likes to make fun of the answers that Miss USA gives", Jimmy Kimmel said.

Kimmel seems to have impressed Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs with his deft handling of the mix-up during the best picture announcement when "La La Land" was mistakenly declared as the victor over "Moonlight".

So the ABC late-night show conducted its experiment by asking random pedestrians questions such as, "Do you think affordable healthcare for all United States citizens is a right or a privilege and why?" and "Do you know what feminism is and are you a feminist?" Certainly, the network would be eager to get one of its own TV personalities on the Oscars (we'll set everything on fire if it's ever Ryan Seacrest, who just joined Live with Kelly).

The 90th Academy Awards is scheduled to air Sunday, March 4, 2018.

"Mike and Jennifer produced a handsome show that was visually stunning", Boone Isaacs said.
