Ellen DeGeneres to Host 2014 Oscars
After months of wondering, who would host the 2014 Oscars, someone has been chosen. None other than Ellen DeGeneres will host the awards show.
Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced the news on Friday.
“We are thrilled to have Ellen DeGeneres host the Oscars,” said Zadan and Meron in a statement. “As a longtime friend, we had always hoped to find a project for us to do together, and nothing could be more exciting than teaming up to do the Oscars. There are few stars today who have Ellen’s gift for comedy, with her great warmth and humanity. She is beloved everywhere, and we expect that the audience at the Dolby Theater, and in homes around the globe, will be as excited by this news as we are.”
And DeGeneres seems to be excited as well.
“I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say—the third time’s the charm,” she said in a statement.
