Two days after getting a new Academy president, we also have a new Oscar host.
Ellen DeGeneres will be taking over the emcee duties for the March 2 Academy Awards telecast, her second turn overseeing Hollywood’s biggest event.
She announced the news via Twitter: “It’s official: I’m hosting the #Oscars! I’d like to thank @TheAcademy, my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra.”
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences elected its new president on Tuesday, marketing executive Cheryl Boone Isaacs, and one of her first responsibilities was to approve the ABC broadcast’s new host. »
