Jimmy Kimmel, ladies and gentlemen, is your host for the 89th annual Academy Awards. The Oscars will air Feb. 26, 2017.

This will be Kimmel's first time hosting the Oscars. He hosted the 2016 Emmy Awards back in September, as well as in 2012 . On his late-night home of ABC, he's emceed the American Music Awards five times. Also, the ESPYS in 2007.

Hopefully 2017's show will be a little less #OscarsSoWhite-y. To see who took home all the big prizes last year, head here.
