She tweeted from her official Twitter account:

“It’s official: I’m hosting the #Oscars! I’d like to thank @TheAcademy, my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra.”
Twitter peeps reactions were overwhelming. To date, there are 18,491 re-tweets and 17,916 who favorited the tweet. There were congratulatory tweets from all over the world. This means people approve of her as the TV host for the Oscars on March 2, 2014.
Apparently, the Academy approved of her performance the previous time that she hosted. It would surely be another night of “fun” and entertainment.
Ellen DeGeneres has been, and still is, a name to reckon with among TV hosts. She is a Hollywood Walk of Fame recipient, an Emmy Award-winning writer and has been recognized as an Outstanding TV Host.
