Ellen DeGeneres is signing up for a long couple of days. The Oscar host announced that, following the Sunday, March 2 Academy Awards ceremony, she will air “The Ellen DeGeneres” show live the very next Monday morning. Airing her show live is something she’s done, in her words, “maybe twice in 11 years.”
DeGeneres elaborates on her plan to THR:
“When you see me on the Oscars on Sunday night, you’re gonna
be like, ‘I wonder what she was thinking when that person did that thing’ or
‘What does Meryl Streep smell like, really’ and I can tell you the next
day… I will be delirious from staying up all night long. Not
really sure what condition I’ll be in. I may be in my pajamas.”
Still, sounds like a fun idea for viewers.
