It’s HOT, so check it out. Ellen DeGeneres has signed on for two years of MC’ing the Academy Awards, and she seems pretty excited about it, judging by this video.

There’s no big hook or gag here; it’s just Ellen dancing to a song with hundreds of dancers for 60 seconds. The end move is woefully anticlimactic, and I guess the cool part of this is that it’s done in one take, but it’s still a little sloppy, and if you’re not a fan of dancing…then run, don’t walk away from the 2014 Oscars.

There will be dancing.

(But also probably Jennifer Lawrence.)

The more we see very accomplished entertainers get critically skewered for their Oscar-hosting duties, the more we see it’s a pretty thankless gig. The edgier hosts get chastised for being offensive, and the bland hosts get chastised for being bland. Lose-lose across the board.

However, if there’s an entertainer that can balance mass appeal with talent, humor, and grace, it’s Ellen Degeneres. Or NPH, but he didn’t get picked, so let’s not dwell on hypotheticals. This will be Ellen’s second turn hosting the Oscars, so she’s clearly immune to the criticisms that can be levied on hosts, having decided to come back for more.

However, there will be hell to pay if our grandmothers tune in and Ellen doesn’t do that dancing bit. Grandmothers loving Dancing Ellen.

Booty and the Beast: Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler to Join ‘American Idol’? http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/booty-and-the-beast-jennifer-lopez-and-steven-tyler-to-join-american-idol/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/booty-and-the-beast-jennifer-lopez-and-steven-tyler-to-join-american-idol/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Jennifer Lopez...in happier times. With the departure of Ellen Degeneres from "American Idol," Fox has some big, sensible shoes to fill. And it looks like they'll be filling those shoes with Jennifer Lopez's giant ass. Deadline is reporting that Lopez signed a secret deal to replace Degeneres sometime last week. However, producers are still looking for a replacement for Simon Cowell. Rumor has it that the reanimated corpse of Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler is the frontrunner. As you probably remember, Tyler killed himself after recording "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" for the Armaggedon soundtrack back in 1998. Personally, I think the two are a perfect fit. Lopez will bring back the washed-up singer vibe perfected by Paula Abdul, and Tyler's beastly face will allow viewers to snicker and crack jokes, helping to fill the meanness void that will result from Cowell's departure.

Start Your Weekend Off Right with a ‘Dead Hooker in a Trunk’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/start-your-weekend-off-right-with-a-dead-hooker-in-a-trunk/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/start-your-weekend-off-right-with-a-dead-hooker-in-a-trunk/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I don't have to tell you that nothing says fun like a trunk full of dead hookers. Just ask Charlie Sheen or Ellen Degeneres. Now comes word that a crafty pair of Canadian filmmakers are hoping to capitalize on this universal premise with their new, aptly named film, Dead Hooker in a Trunk. Written, directed, and produced by identical twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska, the film chronicles four improbable friends who find themselves in possession of a dead hooker. What the film seems to lack in regard to acting quality and production values it more than makes up for with a cool title and the hope of female nudity. Plus, if it does well at the box office, I'm hopeful that Dead Hooker in a Trunk 3D may be in the cards. (Dread Central) Check out the Dead Hooker in a Trunk trailer as well as a funny promotional video after the jump.
