Oscars producer: Expect envelope jokes galore from Kimmel

Oscars producer: Expect envelope jokes galore from Kimmel

"Jimmy, Mike and Jennifer are truly an Oscar Dream Team", Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said in a press release.

And we can only imagine how Kimmel will address what happened in 2017, the biggest gaffe ever in awards-show history, when presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were given the wrong envelope and incorrectly announced "La La Land" as best picture before the rightful victor "Moonlight" got its due.

Producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd will also return next year. This will be an honour for Kimmel since he will be the first Oscar host after 1990 to be called back for a second round of hosting.

Jokingly taking the blame for the biggest snafu in the history of the Oscars hasn't hurt Jimmy Kimmel one bit.

H.R. McMaster's defense of Trump's release of classified information is laughable
The officer went on to say they "would not trust a partner who shared intelligence" without telling them first. McMaster said the real threat to national security was leakers "releasing information to the press".

It seems likely that the current deal amongst Opec nations and some other key oil producing nations will be extended. Oman said it fully supported the idea of a nine-month extension.


Syria condemns attack by US-led coalition
Russia's deputy foreign minister Gennady Gatilov added to the condemnation, calling the strike "a breach of Syrian sovereignty". A road between Iraq and Syria would facilitate the flow of assistance from Iran , which is a strong backer of Assad.


Kimmel hosted the Oscars for the first time this year in which an embarrassing on-stage mix-up led to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly being given the wrong envelope and announcing "La La Land" as the victor of best picture, the top award of the night.

Ratings will also be top of mind for Todd and De Luca. Kimmel said on Tuesday (16May17) after his hosting return was announced. "Mike and Jennifer produced a handsome show that was visually stunning".

Accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, which has handled Oscar balloting for 83 years, accepted responsibility for the now infamous ending to this year's Academy Awards, blaming two of its staff. PwC accountants Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz were in charge of handing out the winning envelopes to presenters at the ceremony.

"It's not often you get two chances to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience and even more rare to be handed the keys to a party 90 years in the making", De Luca and Todd said.
