Ellen DeGeneres says she is so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. "You know what they say - the third time’s the charm.” The Academy Awards is set to air on ABC March 2, 2014. The show’s producers are also delighted to have Ellen back stating “There are few stars today that have Ellen's gift for comedy, with her great warmth and humanity. She is beloved everywhere, and we expect that the audience at the Dolby Theater, and in homes around the globe, will be as excited as we are.”

Cheryl Boone Isaacs, President of the Motion Picture Academy, adds that she is looking forward to an "entertaining, engaging and fun show."
