Jimmy Kimmel must have made quite the strong impression on the producers of The Oscars, as he has been announced to return to host the ceremony for the second year in a row.

The upcoming ceremony will be the awards 90th edition. Producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd, who worked on the show last year, will also be returning to work with Kimmel again.

"Jimmy, Mike and Jennifer are truly an Oscar Dream Team," said Academy president, Cheryl Boone Isaacs in the announcement by ABC and The Academy earlier today. "Mike and Jennifer produced a beautiful show that was visually stunning. And Jimmy proved, from his opening monologue all the way through a finale we could never have imagined, that he is one our finest hosts in Oscar history."

Last year at the awards, Kimmel's hosting job was overshadowed by a major gaffe when the wrong name was called out for the Best Picture award. While Moonlight was the winner, La La Land's name was accidentally announced. In an incredibly awkward moment, La La Land had to hand their award over to Moonlight, who then took the stage to deliver their acceptance speech.

"Hosting the Oscars was a highlight of my career and I am grateful to Cheryl, Dawn and the Academy for asking me to return to work with two of my favorite people, Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd," Kimmel said in the announcement. "If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show!"

The Oscars will air March 4th, 2018 at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT. The ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, CA.
