Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres once hosted the Oscars back in 2007. Now, she’s coming back, as she revealed on Twitter today that she will be hosting the 2014 Oscars ceremony.
On Twitter account today, DeGeneres said the following, “It’s official: I’m hosting the Oscars! I’d like to thank The Academy, my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra.”
This news comes right after the election of the new AMPAS chairperson Cheryl Boone Isaacs yesterday. The show will be held on March 2, 2014. I can’t say that I’m too excited, personally, as I wasn’t much of a fan of her last hosting effort nor am I much of an Ellen DeGeneres fan. But I know a lot of people who are, so this will probably be well-received news.
