We’re just a few months away from the Oscars and already the hype is starting to build for the award show. ABC and the Academy have released the first official Oscars poster for this year’s show and it shows off host Ellen DeGeneres just chilling with the most coveted awarding Hollywood.
It’s almost a minimalist poster, as there’s not a whole lot of flash and glitz to it. Rather, it’s clear that following last year’s quasi-roast by host Seth MacFarlane, the Academy is among to dial it back and make the show more classy and more traditional. DeGeneres is hosting for the second time and may be more popular now than she was the first time around hosting.
She knows almost everyone in Hollywood as stars consistently drop by her show without even showing an effort. She books A-list stars with ease and is one of the brightest stars in entertainment right now. A lot of people consider her first hosting gig to be underrated but this time around should be even better and more well received.
The nominations for the Oscars will be announced next week while the show itself is slated to air on March 2nd on ABC.
