Emmy® Award-winning late-night talk show host and producer Jimmy Kimmel will return to host the 95th Oscars®.
“Being invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honor or a trap. Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no,” said Kimmel.
Kimmel serves as host and executive producer of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and recently signed a three-year contract extension, making him one of the longest-running talk show hosts in American television history.
The 95th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 12, 2023, at the Dolby® Theatre at Ovation Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC and in more than 200 territories worldwide.
Here’s your printable ballot. Enjoy!

Howdy. What are a couple of your favorite movies from 2022?
Howdy back at ya! It’s been a weird year for movies and me. Studios have nearly stopped sending DVD screeners, and the studios all have different apps to download in order to watch—lots of hoops to jump through. It’s been a pain in the butt. Oh, and they’ve stopped the Movie Cash option to see offerings in theatres. I don’t know about you, but I find it difficult to judge a film created for a big cinematic experience on an iMac. (I know that doesn’t answer the question you asked…so consider it bonus content.)
I really like The Fabelmans. It’s a thoughtful look at aspirations and truth.
Blonde is a fictional (and nasty) replay of the tragedy of being Marilyn Monroe, but Ana Celia de Armas’ performance is worth watching—the fact is, she could win best actress.
And while I’m not a big fan of Tom Cruise, Top Gun: Maverick is serviceable and entertaining, and I actually enjoyed it. Sometimes, I just need to revisit an old story retold through memorable voices.
Everything Everywhere All at Once. I have a love-hate relationship with this one. The powerful expression of free will that Evelyn’s character shows kept me with it.
Let me know what you’ve seen and if you’re more inspired about the 2022 movie season than I have been
Hi. The movie I liked the best is Thirteen Lives. I really enjoyed The Batman too. Call Jane is a good one also.
