/ August 2, 2013

Ellen DeGeneres is set to host the 86th Academy Awards, and will bring the laughs for a night in Hollywood.

This will be the comedienne’s second time hosting the Oscars, and announced her return to the biggest night in film on March 2, 2014 via her Twitter page in her classic witty delivery.

The producers of the award show, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, said, “There are few stars today who have Ellen’s gift for comedy, with her great warmth and humanity. She is beloved everywhere and we expect the audience at the Dolby Theater, and in homes around the globe, will be as excited by this news as we are.”
