Ellen DeGeneres Will Awkwardly Host the 2014 Oscars

Get up on your feet and start dancing to the blandest song on the radio, because Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the Oscars next year. The talk show dropped the Friday-morning bomb a few minutes ago on Twitter.

"It's official: I'm hosting the #Oscars!" She wrote. "I'd like to thank @TheAcademy, my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra."

DeGeneres previously hosted the Oscars in 2007. Her gags included vacuuming the carpet mid-show, periodically chatting with nominees in the audience and other things people apparently found way more funny and comforting than I did.

On the bright side: She's taking the reins from last year's host, Seth MacFarlane, whose show was widely criticized for being unfunny and probably offensive.
