Ellen is a funny gal ... but how did she do last night at The Oscars?
It was Ellen's first time hosting the Academy Awards ... she had lots of jokes up her sleeve ... but were they funny enough ... does she get 10 out of 10?
She wasn't sharp ... but her warm & low key jokes were what relaxed the audiences & made them at ease.
One of the funniest things she said was: "hosting the Oscars has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl. Let that be a lesson to you kids out there - aim lower."
Then there was that ironic parallel between Jennifer Hudson, a losing contestant from American Idol & former US Vice President Al Gore, who lost an election for president despite winning the popular vote.
She said: "There's no rhyme or reason to who's going to win; Jennifer Hudson was on American Idol, America didn't vote for her, and she's here with an Oscar nomination. That's amazing. And then, Al Gore is here, America did vote for him, and then ... ... very complicated."
That was really funny!
It was also funny when she forced Steven Spielberg to take her picture with Clint Eastwood for her MySpace page!!! Ha Ha Ha!
What did you think of Ellen's performance?
