Comedian, talk show queen, and my friend, Ellen DeGeneres, has been tapped to host the Oscars again! This will be her second time hosting the show. She hosted the show in 2007 and was nominated for an Emmy Award for her performance.
"It is an honor to welcome back Ellen DeGeneres as the host of the biggest entertainment celebration of the year," said Paul Lee, president, ABC Entertainment Group, in a statement. "She is the consummate entertainer, equally beloved by her peers in the industry, movie fans and television viewers. We very much look forward to having her back on ABC for Oscar Sunday."
DeGeneres joked: "I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say -- the third time's the charm."
The Oscars will be held March 2 on ABC.
