NEW YORK -- Ellen DeGeneres will be back for a second time to host the Academy Awards ceremony.
Producers announced her selection Friday. Ms. DeGeneres will return for the ceremony on March 2 after hosting the show in 2007, when she was nominated for an Emmy Award for her performance.
This year's host, Seth MacFarlane, drew mixed reviews for an edgy performance. He had already taken himself out of the running for a return engagement next year.
