Ellen DeGeneres will host the Oscars, she announced on Twitter today. This will be her second time doing so; she previously hosted in 2007, to mostly decent reviews, and she hosted the Emmys in 2001 and 2005. Plus she hosts a talk show every day. She's host-y! And she's also not at all polarizing. Who doesn't like Ellen? It's hard to imagine her crafting a show that would be at all controversial — which makes her pretty much the opposite of last year's host Seth MacFarlane.
