When Kimmel appeared on KROQ's Kevin & Bean morning show Wednesday, he revealed that he's only being paid $15,000 to host the 89th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre on Feb. 26. While the sum is significantly smaller than the scale of the event, Kimmel said producers had to pay him something. "You know why? I think it's illegal to pay nothing," he joked. "I'm not sure I was supposed to reveal this, but nobody told me not to. I consider this their fault."
