Ellen DeGeneres is back as the host of the Oscars and the always funny and talented star teased (and joked!) about what fans can expect on Sunday.
AccessHollywood.com runs down five things Ellen shared (did we mention joked?) with Access’ Shaun Robinson about hosting the 86th Academy Awards.
Ellen On What The Nominated Stars At The Show Should Expect: “They should be filled with fear!”
Ellen On The Jokes & Bits She’ll Bust Out: “I can’t repeat a joke… I’ll be in the audience a lot and I will be playing with people in the audience a lot. Sometimes they’ll know it and sometimes they won’t. … Nobody’s gonna get hurt, but there’s fun to be had.”
Ellen On What Wife Portia de Rossi Will Wear: “I have seen a picture of [her dress]. She had a fitting and she sent me many pictures and that was my favorite and it’s the one she chose, coincidentally.”
Ellen On Her Host Costume Changes: “I’m gonna have four point four!… [I’m wearing] Saint Laurent … he’s my favorite designer right now…You can’t go wrong.”
Ellen On Cutting Loose During The Ceremony: “There will be twerking… I mean, I have a foam finger all picked out. It’s gonna be classy…I’m gonna be so drunk, no memories. I’m not gonna remember a thing and that’s my goal. I hope I remember nothing. The first time I did it sober and I thought, ‘That’s easy!’ So this time I plan on drinking nonstop, and I’m live Tweeting which I couldn’t do seven years ago. So I’ll be Tweeting throughout the entire show, [plus] taking pictures of people in compromising positions.”
The 86th Academy Awards air March 2 on ABC.
