The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Friday talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres will host the Oscars next March.

"It's official: I'm hosting the #Oscars! I'd like to thank @TheAcademy, my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra" DeGeneres tweeted on Friday following the announcement. This will be the second time the Emmy-award winning comedian has hosted the awards, the first being in 2007. She earned an Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program" for that gig.

The Academy Awards will air on ABC Sunday, March 2, 2014
