Ellen DeGeneres will host the 85th annual Academy Awards. The popular TV talk show host announced she’s returning to the gig via her Twitter page Friday morning.
“It’s official: I’m hosting the #Oscars!” DeGeneres wrote. “I’d like to thank @TheAcademy, my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra.”
The syndicated host of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” previously hosted the ceremony in 2007.
