Her sophomore effort should be easier than her first time — though that was not the case with Ellen's sitcom career
Stars — they're just like us!
Ellen DeGeneres made the choice to host the Academy Awards for a second time in the same way that common folks weigh their big decisions: With a Pros and Cons list.
The comedian shared her thought process during her daytime talk show's premiere week.
Here are some of the best reasons Ellen came up with to host the Academy Awards — and some of the top reasons she considered to stay home on her couch and watch along with the rest of us.
Pro: “Meryl Streep could get a record 17th Oscar nomination.”
Pro: “A lot of fancy designers will want to approach me and want me to wear a beautiful, expensive gown of theirs.”
Con: “Ain't no way in hell I'm wearing a gown.”
Pro: “The theater holds 3,000 seats.”
Con: “It's going to take me 45 minutes to dance through all those aisles.”
There were plenty more, and, ultimately, the Pros won.
