Despite the show’s name Jimmy Kimmel Live rarely airs live these days. However, there is one exception – the annual Academy Awards special.
The 7th annual “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After The Academy Awards” programme will air on ABC on Sunday 26th February immediately after the 84th Academy Awards hosted by Billy Crystal and the late local news.
Previous “After The Academy Awards” programmes have been packed full of guests and debuts of Jimmy Kimmel Live’s popular comedy pieces such as “I’m F***ing Ben Affleck”.
This year’s special will also see an array of guests including Billy Crystal, Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron and Don Cheadle.
Coldplay will close the show with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live’s outdoor stage.
