Jimmy Kimmel Spills How Much He Is Getting Paid To Host The Oscars

When discussing his upcoming first turn as Oscars host Wednesday on KROQ’s Kevin & Bean morning show, the late night host revealed he’ll receive $15,000 to host the Oscars.

Surprised? Although the sum might be low considering the scale of the event, which will air in
February on ABC, Kimmel joked there was only one reason why 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 past hosts like Chris Rock and Billy Crystal, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host said, “that’s what they told me,” but pondered whether hosts receive a raise for return appearances as emcee. “I’m not sure i was supposed to reveal this,” he said with a laugh. “But nobody told me not to. I consider this their fault.”
