Jimmy Kimmel reveals how much he's getting paid to host the Oscars

"I'm not sure I was supposed to reveal this," he added. "But nobody told me not to. I consider this their fault."

In addition to "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" the 49-year-old comedian has also hosted his own Oscars aftershow on ABC within the past few years. The announcement that Kimmel would host seemed rather overdue, as the host for film's biggest night is usually announced months prior.
