While talking to People ahead of the event in an article published on Wednesday, he opened up about having the opportunity to host once again. 

‘I feel like the Kansas City Chiefs going into this Oscars,’ he gushed to the outlet. ‘Like you’ve been there before, but it doesn’t make a difference. It’s still exciting and you still have to do well.’ 

Kimmel also revealed that he has been trying to get fit for the big night and said he has simply been indulging in, ‘sad salads and a lot of pathetic boxed meals that are delivered to my home.’ 

‘We work very hard to make the show as good as it possibly can be,’ Jimmy expressed while also giving a shout out to his wife and co-executive producer, Molly McNearney, and the entire team. 

The star – who tied the knot with his wife in 2013 – said that Molly, ‘always goes into everything with a measure of concern and feels the need to remind me of everything that goes along with hosting the Oscars.’ 

‘Weirdly, that just makes me more inclined to do it. Maybe I’m just argumentative by nature. But I know what I’m getting into.’ 

Jimmy later added, ‘The big challenge always is trying to keep the show moving, so it’s a matter of picking your spots and popping in when you’re needed and staying out of the picture when you’re not.’ 

‘We’ve got some really great movies and great actors and performers. It’s tricky, but I think we have it figured out as much as you can.’
