Ellen DeGeneres is the star of the first trailer for the 2014 Academy Awards.

The promo video sees the talk show host wearing a tuxedo and dancing through the Warner Bros. lot with 250 other tuxedo-clad men and women to The Walker by Fitz and the Tantrums.

The video was directed by Bridesmaid's helmer Paul Feig and DeGeneres said of working with him on the video, "Paul Feig has a reputation of being hilarious and nice and smart and I thought this was a great idea. I loved it. And I want to be in Bridesmaids 2, so two plus two – great Oscar promo, Bridesmaids 2, cher-ching."

The Oscar nominations are set to be announced on January 16, 2014 with the ceremony to take place on March 2, 2014.
