We never doubted for a second that Ellen Degeneres would do a bang-up job hosting the Oscars. She does, after all, have a bit of hosting experience.
Ms. D made history as the first lesbian to host the Oscars, an especially magnificent milestone considering all the homophobic dialogue as of late. With regard to those scandals and other discriminatory diatribes, Ellen had this to say:
If there were no blacks, Jews and gays, there’d be no Oscars.
It’s funny ’cause it’s true. Unforunately, Degeneres inadvertently aligned Michael Richards, Mel Gibson and Isaiah Washington against the Academy. Let the Hollywars begin!
