Many were very pleased when it was announced that Ellen Degeneres had agreed to host next year’s Oscars. Now she’s offering up her first promo for the event, where she gets suited up, enlists a legion of dancers and says, ‘Here we go!’. The promo was conceived and directed by The Heat helmer Paul Feig.
I’m not entirely sure what it has to do with giving out awards for film achievement, but it’s pretty cool and sets a good tone for an event that will hopefully allow her to show off her mix of humour and congeniality to the fullest.
The Oscars will be handed out on March 2nd, 2014.
