Back of Ellen Celebrates 51 With Portia and Presents Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were at the Chateau Marmont in LA last night for Ellen's 51st birthday celebration. The couple looked happy to get the party started hand-in-hand as they headed into the event. In addition to getting a gift of bubble wrap from Amy Poehler yesterday, Ellen had one more special present on her big day — her TV program was nominated in the category of Outstanding Talk Show Episode at this year's GLAAD Media Awards. Ellen's no stranger to collecting accolades for her work, but receiving praise on her birthday must be an extra special treat.
