This is the second time hosting for the comedian. The host of Jimmy Kimmel Live first emceed the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards in 2012 when Modern Family and Homeland took home the top prizes.
He follows Andy Samberg, who hosted the ceremony on FOX in 2015, and Seth Meyers, who hosted on NBC the year prior.
