DeGeneres also shared her excitement about hosting this year's Academy Awards, taking to Twitter to tell her fans: "I'm gonna host the #Oscars!" Her pal, Justin Timberlake, seemed thrilled about her role, too. He responded: "You're gonna CRUSH IT! Not literally."

"I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say -- the third time's the charm," DeGeneres said in a statement, when she was first announced as this year's host last August.

The 86th annual Academy Awards will air on Sunday, March 2, on ABC.
