Jimmy Kimmel appears at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 18, 2016, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The host returns to the stage for the 90th Academy Awards show on March 4.

Just over a month before Jimmy Kimmel makes his return to the Oscars stage, the host is still reeling from last year's envelope fiasco. 

In a new promo for the 2018 show, Kimmel seeks therapy after the best picture mix-up that clouded his first-time hosting gig in 2017.

"You know, I dream about it every night," the host says to his therapist, admitting that he can no longer open any mailed letters without being reminded of it. The ordeal has Kimmel so traumatized, he even loses it when he presumes a Starbucks employee has his drink mixed up with a man named Timmy's. 

"I've tried to get past the past, you know, put it behind me. But it just catches up to me," the host says. "I feel like I'm losing my mind. And then the worst part is, they want me to do it again! So what do I do?"

Kimmel's so-called therapist, revealed to be none other than Warren Beatty, tells him: "I don't care what you do, just get out of my house."

Beatty and Bonnie and Clyde co-star Faye Dunaway notoriously presented the best picture Oscar toLa La Land rather than actual winner Moonlight after an envelope mix-up at last year's show.
