Ellen DeGeneres
After Seth MacFarlane stunk up the joint with his frat boy antics during last year's Oscar show, the Academy course corrected and asked Ellen DeGeneres back to the stage (she hosted in 2007) and it was good choice. And in case you missed it, we've got the full opening monologue for you to check out.

Last night, a game was played, and a team won and a team lost, and Seattle seemed to be super happy for some reason. But for our purposes, the Super Bowl means lot of new trailers (including "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and the first teaser for "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" among others) and of course, lots of celeb talent getting paid big bucks to sell things. So, clear away the bones from last night's chicken wings and check out the below.

Seth MacFarlane hosted the Oscars this year, and despite a patchy performance, and whether or not you care for his smarmy sense of humor, ratings went up. And so the word was that the Academy asked him to do it again. However, MacFarlane declined and this speculation on who it would be began to circulate, and we offered up our own suggestions for who should get the gig. But it looks like producers of the telecast are going with someone who's already proven they can do the job, and whose profile has only gone up in recent years.

So yeah, we've said it before, and we'll say it again: merchandising, licensing, blah blah blah...it's the monetary lifeblood of major studios and places like Pixar aren't immune (please see "Cars" and the spinoff "Planes," as well the continuing "Toy Story" shorts). There's shit to sell, and that means "Finding Nemo 2" -- announced last summer -- is happening. And now it's got a title, release date and more.

It looks like the wheels are turning fast on the unnecessary sequel to the solid and entertaining "Finding Nemo." Last month, Andrew Stanton found some post-"John Carter" employment as the director of the upcoming movie, and now, one of the most treasured characters from the first movie is set to return.
