Oscar host announced!!!

My absolute favorite holiday is OSCAR NIGHT and today the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (it is an art? is it a science? discuss...) announced ELLEN DEGENERES will be the host. I was hoping for an encore performance by JON STEWART, but Ellen did well with the Emmys, and, as Academy President Sid Ganis said, 'she is such a pleasure to watch. Her wit cuts to the truth of things, but in a wonderfully warm-spirited way." Yes Sid, I do believe the general public likes her and will help ratings. Who would you like to see host the Oscars? Jack Black did pretty well with the MTV Video Music Awards... Oscar nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 23, 2007 (get up at 5:15am to watch it live on E!); the awards will be handed out on Sunday, February 25th. The countdown begins!
