Jimmy Kimmel is bringing his brand of funny to the 2017 Academy Awards.
The late night host will host next year's Oscars, which will air live on ABC on February 26, 2017, according to Variety.
ABC, it should be noted, also airs "Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel."
While it will be his first time hosting this event, Fallon has hosted the Emmys twice in the past, in both 2012 and earlier this year. He's also hosted the ESPYs and numerous American Music Awards ceremonies.
Kimmel will be following in the recent footsteps of Chris Rock, Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen DeGeneres and Seth MacFarlane.
At this time, it's unclear whether his hosting gig will affect Jimmy's annual "Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars" special.
