Ellen To Host The Oscars

She's hosted the Emmys and the Grammys, but now Ellen is headed for the big time by hosting the Oscars in February. The daytime TV host won 15 Emmys since 2003 and has certainly proven she is hilarious in her stand up routines. We were fans of Jon Stewart last year, but I guess the producers like to change things up. Here's more:

"Ellen DeGeneres was born to host the Academy Awards," said producer Laura Ziskin in a statement. "I can already tell she is going to set the bar very high for herself and therefore for all of us involved in putting on the show. Now all we need is a lot of great movies."

"When Laura Ziskin called, I was thrilled," said DeGeneres in a statement. "There's two things I've always wanted to do in my life. One is to host the Oscars. The second is to get a call from Laura Ziskin. You can imagine that day's diary entry."
