ELLEN TO HOST 2014 OSCARS
ELLEN DeGeneres will host the 2014 Academy Awards.
The talk show host — who first presented the awards in 2007, earning herself an Emmy nomination — will take over from 2013 host Seth MacFarlane.
DeGeneres said: “I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say — the third time’s the charm.”
Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron praised DeGeneres’s “gift for comedy” as they announced her appointment. The show is on March 2, 2014.
They said: “We are thrilled … There are few stars today who have Ellen’s gift for comedy, her great warmth and humanity. She is beloved everywhere and we expect that the audience around the globe, will be as excited by this news as we are.” — Bang Showbiz.
