Ellen DeGeneres’ Delivers in 2014 Oscar Opening

86th Annual Academy Awards - Show

This is the second time Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the Academy Awards and she did not disappoint. She started the evening by making fun of the poor weather that hit California in the recent days. She also took a few minutes to joke about the repeat list of nominees from the last time she hosted and also talked about Amy Adams, June Squibb, Jonah Hill, and Jared Leto. She even referred to Liza Minnelli  as a male impersonator. The funniest jokes delivered by DeGeneres were directed towards Jennifer Lawrence’s fall earlier in the evening and calling all voters “racists” if 12 Years a Slave does not win for best picture. As the night progresses, DeGeneres is sure to keep us laughing.
