Jimmy Kimmel To Host The Oscars Again

He was a farely leftfield choice to begin with but once he got onto that stage he knocked the Oscars out of the park. After doing such an amazing job this year (minus that very odd tour bus prank), Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the biggest movie awards show once again in 2018. His return is one few saw coming but it seems most are happy with.

For the 90th Academy Awards, who knows what he’ll have in-store but with this year’s smart and sharp opening monologue, poking fun at Hollywood’s elite, as well as adding in his own brand of comedy with Mean Tweets and his consistent piss taking of Matt Damon off stage, it’s sure to be equally entertaining. 

Jimmy will be the 23rd presenter who has hosted the Oscars more than once, joining a list which includes Bob Hope, Ellen DeGeneres, Whoopi Goldberg, Frank Sinatra, Jon Stewart and many more.

The 90th Academy Awards takes place on Sunday 4th March and I will be live tweeting them as always. But maybe not live Instagramming…

The 89th Academy Award Nominations and My Predictions

And the nominees are…

Here we have it, the Oscar nominations for 2017. What we have is a mostly predictable list of nominations. However there seems to be something wrong with the Best Actress category. It would seem Meryl Streep’s standard middle of the road performance is better than that of Amy Adams’ in Arrival. Really?? It’s such an insult to what is one of the best performances of the past 12 months but that’s merely my opinion.

With 14 nominations, La La Land has matched the most nominations ever garnered by one film and it’s now the most Oscar nominated musical. It’s no real surprise after it’s been so well-received by critics and audiences alike as well as gaining other awards and nominations during this season. Anyway, with that said, see below for the fill list of nominations as well as my predictions in bold.

The ceremony takes place on the 26th February and is hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Stay tuned for my live blog taking place on the night for those of you willing to stay up until around 5am, GMT.
