The 86th Academy Awards isn't for another couple of months but we already know who will be hosting.

Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted the announcement Friday.

"It's official: I'm hosting the ! I'd like to thank , my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra."

This will be her second time as host.  DeGeneres first hosted the Oscars back in 2007 and was nomintaed 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.

The Oscars will be held March 2.
