Jimmy Kimmel will host the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s 48th annual Anniversary Gala Vanguard Awards
Jimmy Kimmel has twice hosted the Emmys and earlier this year he hosted one of the most memorable Oscars telecasts in history.
So what is Kimmel doing for an encore?
The popular late night personality is hosting the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s on September 23 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. As previously announced, the event will honor Ariel Emanuel, Co-CEO of WME | IMG and Valerie Jarrett, former senior advisor for the Obama Administration.
In addition to announcing Kimmel as the host, the Center announced today that writer and producer Shonda Rhimes will present Jarrett with the Rand Schrader Distinguished Achievement Award while artist Mark Bradford will do the honors for Emanuel, presenting him the Vanguard Award.
