Watch: Ellen DeGeneres' Oscar Monologue From Her First Time Hosting

Which seems like a good occasion revisit her generally well regarded first time out, back in 2007 (when Martin Scorsese’s “The Departed” won the top prize). Watch her full opening monologue below, which holds up very well and bodes well for next year’s ceremony after last year’s heavily criticized host, Seth MacFarlane.
