Ellen Degeneres Hosting The 2014 Oscars


Ellen Degeneres is the new host of the 2014 Oscars. She previously hosted in 2007 and is looking to bring her signature brand of humor to a ceremony that takes itself very seriously. 2013 host Seth Macfarlane drew criticism for his jokes that played to his much younger and much more male-driven Family Guy television audience.
