Good news, everyone. Seth MacFarlane will not be coming back to host the Oscars after all. Instead, we’re going to get Ellen DeGeneres. This will be Ellen’s second time hosting. She first hosted in 2007.
I thought she was a great host. My favorite part was when she went into the audience with a camera and asked Steven Spielberg to take a photo of her with Clint Eastwood. Then after he showed her the pic he took, she made a small critique and asked him to take it again.
I mean come on, that’s gold, Jerry, gold!
In an official statement about her upcoming gig, Ellen 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. (Daily News.)
Do you think Ellen is a good choice? Will you watch?
