AWARDS COVERAGE



Jimmy Kimmel, host of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," will host the 89th Academy Awards, following in the footsteps of recent Oscars hosts like Chris Rock, Neil Patrick Harris, and Ellen DeGeneres.

Kimmel isn't new to hosting awards shows, however, coming off of a successful turn as the host of this year's Emmy Awards. He's also previously hosted the American Music Awards, which air on ABC, the same network as the Oscars.

The nominees for the 89th Academy Awards will be announced January 24, 2017, followed by the ceremony on February 26, 2017.
