He hosted one of the craziest Oscar ceremonies of all time and now, Jimmy Kimmel is coming back to the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, for more.

The Academy took it to its Twitter handle to post, "No one can throw a party 90 years in the making like @JimmyKimmel and producers Michael De Luca & Jennifer Todd! Welcome back! #Oscars90."

The 49-year-old comedian and chat show host later tweeted about his return, writing, "Thanks to @TheAcademy for asking me to host The #again (assuming I opened the right envelope)."

The 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' host was referring to this year's infamous envelope mix-up, wherein 'La La Land' was mistakenly announced as best picture winner instead of 'Moonlight.'
