Ellen DeGeneres' 'Oscars' Promos Actually Make Us Look Forward to Awards Season
There are just so many things to love about this trailer, I'm not even sure where to begin. Is it with the excellent soundtrack pick of "The Walker" by soul/pop band Fitz and the Tantrums? Is it the fact that Ellen DeGeneres' dances moves are epic? Or, possibly, the fact that this only serves as a reminder for how great awards season is going to be, with Ellen hosting the Oscars while Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the Golden Globes? See, it's hard to choose — so the best course of action here is to probably just sit back and enjoy this cute little trailer for Ellen DeGeneres hosting the Oscars, because it's Friday and you probably weren't going to get much work done anyway.
The trailer is pretty simple, but done well: As the first chords of "The Walker" by Fitz and the Tantrums begin, we see Ellen exiting a fine clothing store on the Universal backlot, dressed in full formal garb because she's such a devoted host, she's ready to go nearly three months before the show actually takes place. She then breaks out into an awesome little dance with a whole group of people behind her, like the flash mob of your dreams, or something. It's all very cute — and if it doesn't make you smile, you may not have a soul.
As the promo states, the Oscars — hosted by Ellen DeGeneres — are set to air on ABC on March 2, 2014. Check out the trailer below.
