Jimmy Kimmel was discussing his upcoming turn as Oscar host and revealed that not only was he “absolutely surprised”, but he that he is only getting 15,000 dollars for his duties.
Kimmel says the sum might be low considering he’s emcee of the biggest award show, but he’s OK with it because he says they may not have paid him at all.
He said there was only one reason he was being paid at all – “You know why? I think it’s illegal to pay nothing.”
When asked if his pay was on par with previous hosts like Chris Rock, Billy Crystal and Ellen, he said he was told they all got the same pay.
Kimmel went on to joke, saying he may not be able to afford a tux so he may wear jean shorts to host!
As for Kimmel’s usual Oscar after show, which airs every year on ABC, Kimmel says, “We’ll figure something out.”
So, Sunday February 26th will be Jimmy Kimmel Night! First Jimmy and the Oscars, and then more Jimmy!
