    Ever since I saw her opening monologue from the last time she hosted on youtube I have been WAITING for them to bring her back because she was hilarious, and it’s finally happened

    An underrated Oscar host and a phenomenal Emmys host. Now I really want to see Steve Carell nominated. They’ll probably do a really funny segment together.

    Well, she’s certainly the perfect antidote to Seth MacFarlane.

    I don’t think Ellen was that strong of a host the first time.  She made quite a lot of rookie mistakes and treated the gig like her talk show, with small-time gags that didn’t translate well for such a large audience (following in the vein of the unsuccessful Letterman year): there was the Clint Eastwood/Martin Scorsese script reading, vacuuming, not being edgy with any of her jokes, talking about how much it meant to her to host (a little corny).  It wasn’t the right persona for the Oscars.  That being said, I bet Ellen could do a much better job now than she did back in 2007.  She should have a better sense of what works and what didn’t, plus she’s more popular now than ever with Finding Nemo 2 in the works.

    So the blue hair wing of the Academy has pulled some strings to land their pick for host this year. This show will be as bland and twice as long as a typical Jennifer Aniston movie. Where’s Louis C. K. when you need him?

    Love Ellen! Warm and funny at same time. Can’t wait! Wonder if they’ll be tuning in from Russia?

    Most of the world gets the show tape delayed the next day, and edited to make it a briefer show.

    This will be a week after the Olympics are over, so she might have lots of material.

    Woot! Great choice!  Would have prefered the dynamic duo of Tina and Amy, but Ellen’s also pretty good.

    Great choice! Ellen was fantastic at the 2006/2007 Oscars! Her opening was one of my favorite and memorable.
