Ellen DeGeneres Will Host This Year's Oscars
After last year's polarizing hosting job by Seth MacFarlane, the Academy Awards are this year going not-at-all polarizing but just as breast-focused with Ellen DeGeneres as host. It will be DeGeneres's second time as host, following up her performance at the 79th annual ceremony back in 2007.
"I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say - the third time's the charm," DeGeneres joked in a statement that probably made Billy Crystal feel a lot better.
"Oh, so this year they wanted edgy."
