HOLLYWOOD -- Jimmy Kimmel is getting his tuxedo out of the back of the closet and gearing up to host the 2023 Oscars.
Kimmel has hosted twice before, and says what he has learned is to just be ready for anything.
"There are only two ways to prepare for the Oscar broadcast. One is to write a ton of jokes," said Kimmel. "And the other is to try and fit into your tuxedo. So I've been writing and starving."
Kimmel is thrilled to have some of 2022's more popular movies earn nominations because that means he doesn't have to explain movie plot points to the audience. And he says if something "crazy" happens... he plans to be right in the center of things, ready to comment on any unexpected moments.
"I feel like I have a good sense of what needs to be done. Really, you just have to be funny at the beginning, and funny throughout the whole thing, and then apologize repeatedly for how long the show was," said Kimmel.
