This year Ellen Degeneres is back to host The Academy Awards and almost everyone is just as excited as we are about it.
Degeneres hosted the awards ceremony back in 2007 and maybe in order to make up for Seth MacFarlane’s ever-so-slightly-sexist performance last year, The Academy decided to have her host again.
Leading up to the show the comedian has had some of the best, albeit corny, jokes that she’s been tweeting out over the past few days. While not everyone is excited over Ellen’s hosting gig, here are some of her best Oscar jokes via Twitter. We can only imagine what quality material she has in store for the actual show.

Even Ellen is obsessed with JLaw.
Jennifer Lawrence is only 23 and she already has 3 Oscar nominations. When I was 23 I had 3 prison penpals. #Oscars

What movie was Streep in again?
I think we can all agree; if Meryl Streep doesn’t win this year, her career is in real trouble. #Oscars — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) February 27, 2014
.@BetteMidler is performing at the #Oscars for the first time this year! I have to call her and make sure we don’t wear the same thing. — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) February 27, 2014

These word play tweets are the best and corniest thing on the Internet, and we love them.
Gonna (Penelope) Cruz to rehearsal in my (Harrison)Ford w/a (Brad) Pitt-stop in (Kerry) Washington state-beautiful this time of year #Oscars — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) March 1, 2014
The show’s getting (Glenn) Close. I better put on my (Benedict) Cumberbatch and my (Jennifer) Garner belt. Okay, I’m done. #Oscars — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) March 2, 2014
But for some reason not everyone seems to agree.
I like Ellen DeGeneres but these celebrity name word-play tweets are so unbelievably awful. They’re actually making me cringe.

How!? And why!?
I absolutely adore The Academy Awards but I absolutely loathe Ellen DeGeneres. Stuck between a rock and a hard place on whether I’m watching

We really just don’t understand.
I’d rather see my liquored up cousin tim host the oscars instead of ellen degeneres.
