Can We Get the Sandman from Showtime at the Apollo for the Oscars? And Other Great Quips from Host Ellen DeGeneres in a New Promo

If you weren't already excited to see Ellen DeGeneres host the Oscars this year, this video should ease any concerns you may have about her (I personally can't freakin wait). The two-minute clip shows the comedienne in reliable form--a mock Q&A in which she offers sarcastic quips about Clint Eastwood's "surprisingly minty" breath, some of her favorite non-Oscar hosts like Steve Harvey and Sinbad, and a half serious proposal to hire the Sandman from Showtime at the Apollo to push help usher over-zealous celebrities off the stage. (That actually doesn't sound like a bad idea).

It's hilarious; it's unfiltered; it's deadpan, it's Ellen. Watch it:

Chris Hemsworth and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Cheryl Boone Isaacs will announce the Oscar nominations live this Thursday at 8:30am/5:30am PST. The Oscar ceremony is scheduled to air live March 2nd at 7pm/4pm PST on ABC.
