Awards season is in session—and the granddaddy of them all is just around the corner!
"Look at me! I'm gonna host the #Oscars," tweeted Ellen DeGeneres today upon the release of the first official poster for touting the 86th Academy Awards—punchily dubbed just the "2014 Oscars" for promotional purposes.
"I'd like to thank The Academy. Seriously. Thank you," the veteran talk—and awards—show host added.
DeGeneres, clad in a traditional tuxedo in the ad, is returning as host for the second time, her first go-round having been in 2007. The ever-funny lady has also hosted the Emmys and Grammys twice apiece.
