Jimmy Kimmel was paid a shockingly small amount to host the chaotic Oscars


Jimmy Kimmel, who hosted the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday night, disclosed in December how much he was getting paid for the gig.

It turns out he was paid $15,000, which is a lot of money for a few hours of airtime but pretty low compared with his regular pay for “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” — $13 million to $15 million a year — and given all the preparation that goes into hosting a live TV event as widely seen as the Oscars.

“I’m not sure I was supposed to reveal this,” Kimmel said in December. “But nobody told me not to. I consider this their fault.”
