Ellen DeGeneres is no stranger to awards show hosting. In 1994 she co-hosted the PrimeTime Emmy Awards and then twice solo hosted them, her second of which was shortly after the September 11th terrorist attacks 2001. A stint which garnered her critical and industry praise for her handling of the awards in such a difficult time for the nation.

In her statement upon receiving notice that she had been chosen as the host for the 2007 Oscars, DeGeneres said, "there's two things I've always wanted to do in my life. One is to host the Oscars. The second is to get a call from Laura Ziskin. You can imagine that day's diary entry."
