So boring…………. even if ellen does amazing at hosting the oscars is slowly losing its spark. i mean its the same old thing. Gawd, she’s boring. Give Ricky Gervais a shot. She’s bold and funny, and she’s the safe choice, having done it before with the Oscars and the Emmys. She is also very likeable, not like Ricky Gervais which can be polarizing. Ellen is great she’s the perfect host they should have invited her back long ago she did so well. Much better than anyone who hosted since her. I hope she dances out when she is introduced. That would be amazing! Laura Ziskin: Visionary. Comments are closed.
