And now for some news that absolutely everyone is excited about — Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the next Academy Awards!
This will be Ellen’s second time hosting the Oscars, having previously hosted in 2007. She also hosted the Emmys in 2001 and 2005 and co-hosted them in 2003.
Ellen tweeted the news, saying, “It’s official: I’m hosting the #Oscars! I’d like to thank @TheAcademy, my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra.”
Hopefully the orchestra won’t be as rude as it usually is, but that’s obviously just wishful thinking. Ellen, though, is sure to be wonderful. Maybe she’ll even throw in some dance moves.
