Five men are nominated for Best Actor this year and each gives a performance that is much better than alright... alright... alright.

There's Matthew McConaughey, who has officially shed his romantic comedy reputation and who also shed 40 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

There's Leonardo DiCaprio, who had us believing he really was snorting cocaine in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Bruce Dern tugged at our heartstrings in Nebraska, Christian Bale cracked us up in American Hustled (that hair!) and Chiwetel Ejiofor made us cry in 12 Years a Slave.

Laugh. Dance. Live.

It's the motto of Ellen DeGeneres and it also sums up the first official trailer for the 2014 Academy Award, which air on March 2 and which will be hosted by this hilarious comedian.

In the following minute-long preview, a dapper Ellen is joined by a handful of tuxedo-clad man as she dances around and lip-synchs to Fitz & The Tantrums' "The Walker."

"She loves to dance and now she loves to Walk!" the indie pop band Tweeted about the video. "@TheEllenShow and The #Oscars! Here We Go!"

Here we go, indeed.

Ellen - whose marriage to Portia de Rossi is NOT on the rocks, thank you very much! - continued to be awesome last month when she gave a car and cash to some hospital workers.

She's the best.
