The decision to bring back Ellen DeGeneres to emcee the 2014 Oscar awards was generally well received in Hollywood and was particularly welcomed by those who criticized last year's host, Seth McFarlane for some of his bawdy material, such as his musical parody, We Saw Your Boobs. DeGeneres tweeted the news Friday morning: It's official. .. I'm hosting the Oscars! I'd like to thank The Academy, my wife Portia, and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra. Later, she was quoted in a press release issued by the motion picture Academy as saying, I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say: the third time's the charm. Asked by the Los Angeles Times whether he believes DeGeneres was chosen to counter the backlash to McFarlane's stint last year, former Oscar producer Don Mischer replied, I really doubt that's the motivation. ... Having been in the producer's shoes many times, you are primarily looking for someone you have confidence in, someone that can roll with the punches, is quick on their feet, is likable and has a track record for live performance. She's done it all and has done it well. I doubt there was any other reason for choosing Ellen.
