Jimmy Kimmel isn’t worried about any big mistakes when he returns to host the Oscars this year, as he is admitting that he likes when things go wrong.

Returning Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel is certainly not traumatized by last year’s Best Picture fiasco!

If you need a refresher, I’ll supply one for you. When the winner for Best Picture was announced at last year’s Academy Awards, it was quickly discovered something had gone horribly wrong. Warren Beatty had apparently been given the wrong envelope, and announced the winner to be La La Land. The only problem was that Moonlight was the true recipient of the honor, resulting in one of the most embarrassing blunders in the history of the Oscars.

According to US Weekly, Kimmel has no qualms about coming back to host the show this year, despite the mix-up. “I like when things go wrong, I’m okay with it,” Kimmel explains in a recent interview. He goes on to explain that the Best Picture mistake wasn’t even the only problem they had last year. During rehearsals, the entire set had also totally collapsed.

Talking further about the Best Picture situation, Kimmel says he has no idea how Beatty got the wrong envelope. However, there’s a part of Kimmel that’s holding out hope for the same exact thing to happen this year. “Color coding might be a nice thing to think of this time around but I’ll be honest, it would be funny if it happened again,” he explains.
