She is of French, English, German, and Irish descent. She was raised as a Christian Scientist until age 13.[citation needed] In 1973, her parents filed for separation and were divorced the following year. Shortly after, Ellen's mother married Roy Gruessendorf, a salesman. Betty Jane and Ellen moved with Gruessendorf from the New Orleans area to Atlanta, Texas. Vance stayed with his father. On a February 2011 episode of her show, she told her studio audience of a letter from the New England Historic Genealogical Society confirming she is 15th cousin to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge via their shared common ancestor Thomas Fairfax.[8][9]

DeGeneres graduated from Atlanta High School in May 1976, after completing her first years of high school at Grace King High School in Metairie, Louisiana. She moved back to New Orleans to attend the University of New Orleans, where she majored in communication studies. After one semester, she left school to do clerical work in a law firm with a cousin, Laura Gillen. Her early jobs included working at J. C. Penney,[10] and being a waitress at T.G.I. Friday's and another restaurant, a house painter, a hostess, and a bartender. She relates much of her childhood and career experiences in her comedic work.

Stand-up comedy DeGeneres started performing stand-up comedy at small clubs and coffee houses. By 1981 she was the emcee at Clyde's Comedy Club in New Orleans. DeGeneres cites Woody Allen and Steve Martin as her main influences at this time.[11] In the early 1980s she began to tour nationally, and in 1982 she was named Showtime's funniest person in America in 1982.[12]

Netflix MAY 24, 2017, main article: Ellen DeGeneres Lands New Netflix Stand-Up Special Ellen DeGeneres will appear in a brand new stand up special for Netflix.

“It has been 15 years since I did a stand-up special. 15 years,” DeGeneres said in a statement. “And I’m writing it now, I can’t wait. I’ll keep you posted when and where I’m gonna shoot my Netflix special. I’m excited to do it; I’m excited for you to see it.”

Film career

Ellen DeGeneres at the Emmy Awards, September 1997 Ellen's work in the late 1980s and early 1990s included the film Coneheads. DeGeneres starred in a series of films for a show named Ellen's Energy Adventure, which is part of the Universe of Energy attraction and pavilion at Walt Disney World's Epcot. The film also featured Bill Nye, Alex Trebek, Michael Richards, and Jamie Lee Curtis. The show revolved around DeGeneres' falling asleep and finding herself in an energy-themed version of Jeopardy!, playing against an old rival, portrayed by Curtis, and Albert Einstein. The next film had DeGeneres co-hosting an educational look at energy with Nye. The ride first opened on September 15, 1996, as Ellen's Energy Crisis, but was quickly given the more positive-sounding name Ellen's Energy Adventure.

Television career DeGeneres's first regular TV role was in a short-lived Fox sitcom called Open House. She played the role of Margo Van Meter, an office worker at the Juan Verde Real Estate company. The show co-starred Alison LaPlaca and Mary Page Keller. In 1992, producers Neal Marlens and Carol Black cast DeGeneres in their sitcom Laurie Hill, in the role of Nurse Nancy MacIntyre. The series was canceled after only four episodes, but Marlens and Black were so impressed with DeGeneres' performance that they soon cast her in their next ABC pilot, These Friends of Mine, which they co-created with David S. Rosenthal.

At the Governor's Ball after the 46th Annual Emmy Awards telecast, September 1994 DeGeneres's comedy career became the basis of the successful sitcom Ellen, named These Friends of Mine during its first season. The ABC show was popular in its first few seasons due in part to DeGeneres's style of observational humor; it was often referred to as a "female Seinfeld."[13]

Ellen reached its height of popularity in April 1997, when DeGeneres came out as a lesbian on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Her character on the sitcom also came out of the closet to her therapist, played by Oprah Winfrey.[14] The coming-out episode, titled "The Puppy Episode", was one of the highest-rated episodes of the show. The series returned for a fifth season but experienced falling ratings due to ABC's cutting back on promoting the show.[citation needed] It was believed that The Walt Disney Company, ABC's parent owner, had become uncomfortable with the subject matter depicted on the show now that DeGeneres' character was openly gay.[citation needed] In May 1998, Ellen was canceled. DeGeneres returned to stand-up comedy and later re-established herself as a successful talk show host.

DeGeneres returned to television in 2001 with a new CBS sitcom, The Ellen Show. DeGeneres launched a daytime television talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in September 2003. One of several celebrity-hosted talk shows surfacing at the beginning of that season, including those of Sharon Osbourne and Rita Rudner, her show has consistently risen in the Nielsen ratings and received widespread critical praise. It was nominated for 11 Daytime Emmy Awards in its first season, winning four, including Best Talk Show. The show has won 25 Emmy Awards for its first three seasons on the air. DeGeneres is known for her dancing and singing with the audience at the beginning of the show and during commercial breaks. She often gives away free prizes and trips to be in her show's studio audience with the help of her sponsors.

DeGeneres celebrated her thirty-year class reunion by flying her graduating class to California to be guests on her show in February 2006. She presented Atlanta High School with a surprise gift of a new electronic LED marquee sign. In May 2006, DeGeneres made a surprise appearance at the Tulane University commencement in New Orleans. Following George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton to the podium, she came out in a bathrobe and furry slippers. "They told me everyone would be wearing robes," she said. Ellen then went on to make another commencement speech at Tulane in 2009.[15]

The show broadcast for a week from Universal Studios Orlando in March 2007. Skits included DeGeneres going on the Hulk Roller Coaster Ride and the Jaws Boat Ride. In May 2007, DeGeneres was placed on bed rest due to a torn ligament in her back. She continued hosting her show from a hospital bed, tended to by a nurse, explaining "the show must go on, as they say." Guests sat in hospital beds as well. On May 1, 2009, DeGeneres celebrated her 1000th episode, featuring celebrity guests such as Oprah Winfrey, Justin Timberlake, and Paris Hilton, among others.[citation needed]

DeGeneres attending Oprah Winfrey's 50th birthday party in Los Angeles, California, in January 2004 On September 9, 2009, it was confirmed that DeGeneres would replace Paula Abdul as a judge of the ninth season of American Idol. Her role started after the contestant auditions, at the beginning of "Hollywood Week".[16][17] It is reported that DeGeneres also signed a contract to be a judge on the show for at least five seasons.[18] She made her American Idol debut on February 9, 2010. However, on July 29, 2010, DeGeneres and Fox executives announced that the comedian would be leaving American Idol after one season. In a statement, DeGeneres said that the series "didn't feel like the right fit for me".[19]

Award shows DeGeneres received wide exposure on November 4, 2001, when she hosted the televised broadcast of the Emmy Awards. Presented after two cancellations due to network concerns that a lavish ceremony following the September 11 attacks would appear insensitive, the show required a more somber tone that would also allow viewers to temporarily forget the tragedy. DeGeneres received several standing ovations for her performance that evening, which included the line: "What would bug the Taliban more than seeing a gay woman in a suit surrounded by Jews?"

In August 2005, DeGeneres hosted the 2005 Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony held on September 18, 2005. This was three weeks after Hurricane Katrina, making it the second time she hosted the Emmys following a national tragedy. She also hosted the Grammy Awards in 1996 and in 1997.

On September 7, 2006, DeGeneres was selected to host the 79th Academy Awards ceremony, which took place on February 25, 2007.[20] This makes her the first openly gay or lesbian person to have hosted the event. During the Awards show, DeGeneres said, "What a wonderful night, such diversity in the room, in a year when there's been so many negative things said about people's race, religion, and sexual orientation. And I want to put this out there: If there weren't blacks, Jews and gays, there would be no Oscars, or anyone named Oscar, when you think about that."[21] Reviews of her hosting gig were positive, with one saying, "DeGeneres rocked, as she never forgot that she wasn't just there to entertain the Oscar nominees but also to tickle the audience at home."[22] Regis Philbin said in an interview that "the only complaint was there's not enough Ellen."

DeGeneres was nominated for an Emmy Award as host of the Academy Awards broadcast.[23] On August 2, 2013, it was announced that DeGeneres would host the Academy Awards on March 2, 2014, for the second time.[24]

A selfie orchestrated by 86th Academy Awards host Ellen DeGeneres during the broadcast is the second-most retweeted tweet ever.[25][26] DeGeneres said she wanted to homage Meryl Streep's record 17 Oscar nominations by setting a new record with her, and invited other Oscar celebrities to join them. The resulting photo of twelve celebrities broke the previous retweet record within forty minutes and was retweeted over 1.8 million times in the first hour.[27][28][29] By the end of the ceremony it had been retweeted over 2 million times, less than 24 hours later, it had been retweeted over 2.8 million times.[26][27] As of May 2017, it has been retweeted over 3.4 million times.[26] The group selfie effort was parodied by Lego and Matt Groening with The Simpsons.[30][31] It beat the previous record, which was held by Barack Obama, following his victory in the 2012 presidential election.[29][32][33]

Other ventures

Ellen at Tulane University in 2009 Voice acting DeGeneres lent her voice to the role of Dory, a friendly fish with short-term memory loss, in the 2003 animated Disney/Pixar film Finding Nemo.[34] The film's director, Andrew Stanton, said that he chose Ellen because she changed the subject five times before one sentence had finished on her show.[35] For her performance as Dory, DeGeneres won the Saturn Award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films for Best Supporting Actress; Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie from the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards; and the Annie Award from the International Animated Film Association, for Outstanding Voice Acting. She was also nominated for a Chicago Film Critics Association Award in the Best Supporting Actress category. She also provided the voice of the dog in the prologue of the Eddie Murphy feature film Dr. Dolittle. Her win of the Saturn Award marked the first and only time the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has given the acting award for a voice performance.

She reprised the role of Dory from Finding Nemo in the 2016 sequel, Finding Dory.

Commercial spokesperson In November 2004, DeGeneres appeared, dancing, in an ad campaign for American Express. Her most recent American Express commercial, a two-minute black-and-white spot in which she works with animals, debuted in November 2006 and was created by Ogilvy & Mather. In 2007, the commercial won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Commercial.

DeGeneres began working with CoverGirl Cosmetics in September 2008, for which she has been criticized, as her animal-friendly values clash with Procter and Gamble's (the maker of CoverGirl Cosmetics) animal testing.[36] Her face became the focus of CoverGirl advertisements starting in January 2009. The beauty campaign was DeGeneres's first.[37]

On December 3, 2011, DeGeneres headlined the third annual "Change Begins Within" gala for the David Lynch Foundation held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.[38][39]

In spring 2012, DeGeneres became the spokesperson for J. C. Penney in a tour and advertising campaign.[10]

DeGeneres represents a line of products on QVC, a home shopping network. Her line of home products, initialized as E.D., for Ellen DeGeneres, began being offered on QVC on October 24, 2014, under the name E.D. on Air.[40]

Eleveneleven Main article: eleveneleven On May 26, 2010, DeGeneres announced on her show that she was starting her own record label entitled "eleveneleven". She explained her choice of name, claiming that she often sees the number 11:11 when looking at her clocks, that she found Greyson on the 11th, and that the singer's soccer jersey has the number 11.[41] She mentioned that she had been looking for videos of performances on YouTube to start her label. The first act she signed to the label is Greyson Chance.[42]

Personal life Forbes estimated DeGeneres' 2015 earnings at US$75 million.[43] In 2015, she was named the 50th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes[44] and number two on the World Pride Power list.[45]

She is a fan of the National Football League and has shown particular support for the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers.[46] In 2011, she attended a Saints practice dressed as Packers Hall of Famer Don Hutson.[47]

Sexual orientation and relationships In 1997, DeGeneres came out as lesbian. The disclosure of her sexual orientation sparked intense interest by American tabloids.[48] The contentiousness of the media coverage stunted DeGeneres' professional career and left her "mired in depression".[48] In her book Love, Ellen, DeGeneres' mother, Betty DeGeneres describes being initially shocked when her daughter came out, but she has since become one of her strongest supporters; she is also an active member of Parents & Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) and spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign's Coming Out Project.

The same year she came out, DeGeneres started a romantic relationship with actress Anne Heche that lasted until August 2000.[49] From 2000 to 2004, DeGeneres maintained a close affair with actress/director/photographer Alexandra Hedison.[50] The couple appeared on the cover of The Advocate after their separation had already been announced to the media.[51]

Portia de Rossi and DeGeneres in September 2012 Since 2004, DeGeneres has had a relationship with Portia de Rossi.[52] After the overturn of the same-sex marriage ban in California, DeGeneres and de Rossi were engaged, and married in August 2008, at their home in Beverly Hills, California, where they live with their four dogs and three cats.[53][54] The passage of Proposition 8 cast doubt on the legal status of their marriage, but a subsequent California Supreme Court judgment validated it because it occurred before November 4, 2008.[55][56][57] On August 6, 2010, de Rossi filed a petition to legally change her name to Portia Lee James DeGeneres.[58] The petition was granted on September 23, 2010.[59]

Animal rights and being a former vegan DeGeneres is a former vegan.[60][61][62][63] She previously described herself as a vegan and "big animal lover".[64][65] De Rossi, too, is a former vegan.[65][61] Ellen co-ordinates a vegan outreach website titled 'Going Vegan with Ellen'.[66] She intended to open a vegan tapas bar, Bokado, in Los Angeles, but plans fell through.[67]

The site for The Ellen DeGeneres Show contains a section called "Going Vegan With Ellen", in which she promotes "Meatless Mondays" and features vegan recipes.[68] She has several times invited Humane Society of the United States CEO Wayne Pacelle to speak on her show about the organization's efforts in animal protection legislation. In 2009, PETA named her their "Woman of the Year."[69] In April 2013, she donated $25,000 to stop Ag-Gag anti-whistleblower legislation in Tennessee, which would prohibit undercover investigators from recording footage of animal abuse on farms.[70]

DeGeneres served as campaign ambassador to Farm Sanctuary's Adopt-A-Turkey Project in 2010, asking people to start "a new tradition by adopting a turkey instead of eating one" at Thanksgiving.[71]

Humanitarianism In November 2011, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton named her a Special envoy for Global AIDS Awareness.[72] On December 3, 2011, DeGeneres opened the show at the David Lynch Foundation's 3rd annual "Change Begins Within" gala at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to raise funds to bring Transcendental Meditation to at-risk populations suffering from epidemic levels of chronic stress and stress-related disorders. She says: "TM is the only time I have that stillness… it gives me this peaceful feeling, and I love it so much. I can’t say enough good things about it. All the benefits that you can achieve from sitting still and going within—it really is a beautiful experience. David Lynch is such a wonderful man to start this foundation to help people."[73][74]

Ellen DeGeneres Biography Showing all 90 items Jump to: Overview (3) | Mini Bio (1) | Spouse (1) | Trade Mark (5) | Trivia (54) | Personal Quotes (24) | Salary (2) Overview (3) Date of Birth 26 January 1958, Metairie, Louisiana, USA Birth Name Ellen Lee DeGeneres Height 5' 7½" (1.71 m) Mini Bio (1) Emmy-winning talk show host Ellen Lee DeGeneres was born in Metairie, Louisiana, a New Orleans suburb. She is the daughter of Betty DeGeneres (née Elizabeth Jane Pfeffer), a speech therapist, and Elliott Everett DeGeneres, an insurance agent. Her brother is musician and producer Vance DeGeneres. Her parents divorced when she was sixteen years old. Her mother remarried, and her new husband, salesman Roy Gruessendorf, moved the family to Atlanta, Texas.

After graduating from Atlanta High School in 1976, Ellen attended the University of New Orleans as a communication major, but she dropped out after one semester. She held a wide variety of jobs until she turned to stand-up comedy, making her bones at small clubs and coffeehouses before working her way up to emcee Clyde's Comedy Club by 1981. Her comedy was described as a distaff version of Bob Newhart. Beginning in the early 1980s, she toured nationally and was named the funniest person in America after winning a competition sponsored by the cable network Showtime. This led to better gigs, including her first appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) in 1986.

Though DeGeneres's early forays into series television were not successful (she appeared as a supporting player in two short-lived TV situation comedies in the period 1989-92, Open House (1989) and Laurie Hill (1992)), she scored a hit headlining her own 1994 sitcom on ABC "These Friends of Mine" (later renamed Ellen (1994) after its first season). She made TV history in April 1997 when her character, and DeGeneres herself personally, revealed that she was a lesbian. However, the show was canceled the following season due to declining ratings, after which DeGeneres returned to the stand-up circuit. In 2001, DeGeneres launched a new series, The Ellen Show (2001), on CBS, but it suffered from poor ratings and was canceled.

Redemption as a television artiste came in 2003, when DeGeneres's daytime talk show, Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show (2003) proved to be both a critical hit and a commercial success. Along with good ratings, the show has won unprecedented kudos from the industry, winning 15 Emmy Awards in its first three seasons on the air and becoming the first talk show in TV history to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show in its first three seasons.

DeGeneres has also made a name for herself as a host of awards shows. She hosted the Grammy Awards in 1996 and 1997, as well as the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2001 and 2005. In February 2007, she had the ultimate TV awards show gig, hosting the Oscars, which she hosted again in 2014. - IMDb Mini Biography By: Jon C. Hopwood

The genesis of Ellen's company name resulted from her frequent sightings of 11:11 on digital timepieces, her chance discovery of the singer on the 11th of the month and the fact that his soccer jersey number was 11. Ellen's name also has two lower case adjacent 'L's that resemble the number 11.

Well, I was an accountant. "I was raised around heterosexuals, as all heterosexuals are. That's where us gay people come from - you heterosexuals." - during her interview on 20/20 (1978). On her love scene with Bill Pullman in Mr. Wrong (1996): "It's a combination of Mushehoo Pra'ee (1986), After Hours (1985) and Mary Poppins (1964)....if Mary Poppins were naked." "The '60s were when hallucinogenic drugs were really, really big. And, I don't think it's a coincidence that we had the type of shows we had then like The Flying Nun (1967). I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her. My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the hell she is. You say you're sick and tired of hearing about me? I've got news for you: I'M sick and tired of hearing about me. On hosting the Emmys after the 9/11 tragedy (November 4, 2001): "We're told to go on living our lives as usual, because to do otherwise is to let the terrorists win, and really, what would upset the Taliban more than a gay woman wearing a suit in front of a room full of Jews?" Sometimes the greatest things are the most embarrassing. "I just like observing people-it's something I've done ever since I was a kid, and I got really good at it. That's a big part of why I became a comedian. My audience is filled with every kind of person you can imagine, and I love that." (Redbook, January 2006) "I'd like to be more patient! I just want everything now. I've tried to meditate, but it's really hard for me to stay still. I'd like to try to force myself to do it, because everybody says how wonderful meditation is for you, but I can't shut my mind up. So patience and learning is the key." (Redbook, January 2006) "I look at anything in nature and how things work-the stars, the pyramids-and I can't imagine that there's not some kind of design to it all. There's got to be something big that we don't understand. I do believe in Jesus. I believe in being good to one another. Life is about spending our time here contributing and not taking away. That's my faith." (Redbook, January 2006) Really, he called me that? Ellen Degenerate? I've been getting that since the fourth grade. I guess I'm happy I could give him work. [When told in an interview that, after she revealed her homosexuality, Jerry Falwell called her 'Ellen Degenerate']. There's two things I've always wanted to do in my life. One is to host the Oscars. The second is to get a call from Laura Ziskin. You can imagine that day's diary entry. - After receiving a call from Ziskin, producer of the 2007 Oscars, requesting that Ellen host. Every morning, I would come down to the kitchen and I would see myself making coffee and I would think 'oh, she's pretty'. (on what life would be like with an identical twin) On why she, a non-singing entertainer, would be a successful American Idol: The Search for a Superstar (2002) judge replacement: I know I'm going to be a great judge - because I've spent my whole life being judged. Find out who you are and be that person. That's what your soul was put on this Earth to be. Find that truth, live that truth and everything else will come. What goes up must come down, which is why I don't wear tube tops. Never follow anyone else's path, unless you're in the woods and you're lost and you see a path; then, by all means, you should follow that path. I'm glad I'm funny. I'm glad I make people happy, because that's very important. But I'm most proud to be known as a kind person...Because kindness spreads, and the world is a little nicer out there. We can sit and worry about what's going to happen to us two weeks from now. I'd rather focus on the amazing things happening right in front of us. Animals help us do that. Be kind to one another. Why do they say we're over the hill? I don't even know what that means and why it's a bad thing. When I go hiking and I get over a hill, that means I'm past the hard part and there's a snack in my future. Salary (2) Mr. Wrong (1996) $2,000,000 Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show (2003) $15,000,000

אלן[עריכת קוד מקור | עריכה] Postscript-viewer-shaded.png ערך מורחב – אלן (סדרת טלוויזיה)

דג'נרס בחלוקת פרסי האמי 1997 ב-1994 עלתה לאוויר תוכנית הטלוויזיה של דג'נרס, קומדיית מצבים בשם "אלן" (שנקראה These Friends of Mine בעונתה הראשונה), ברשת ABC. התוכנית התמקדה בחייה של אלן מורגן, בעלת חנות ספרים בלוס-אנג'לס. התוכנית דורגה בין 10 הראשונות מבחינת הרייטינג ודג'נרס אף זכתה במועמדות לפרס אמי לשחקנית הטובה ביותר בסדרה קומית.

היציאה מהארון[עריכת קוד מקור | עריכה] דג'נרס יצאה מהארון ב-14 באפריל 1997, וסיפרה כי היא לסבית בראיון מיוחד לטיימס מגזין. זמן קצר אחר כך, ב-30 באפריל יצאה גם הדמות של דג'נרס בסדרה מהארון, בפרק מיוחד שכונה The Puppy - "הכלבלב". 46 מיליון איש צפו בפרק מיוחד שהפך לאחד האירועים הטלוויזיונים הנצפים ביותר בארצות הברית עד אז ולפרק הנצפה ביותר בתוכנית אי פעם. כוכבים הוליוודים רבים השתתפו בפרק כולל לורה דרן, ששיחקה את נושא אהבתה של אלן, מנחת הטלוויזיה והאייקון התרבותי אופרה וינפרי, שגילמה את הפסיכולוגית של אלן, בילי בוב תורנטון וכן אייקונים לסביים כגון הזמרות קיי די לאנג ומליסה את'רידג'. היציאה מהארון של הדמות הפך את הסדרה "אלן" לסדרה הראשונה שבה דמות ראשית לסבית. הפרק זכה לתשואות מהמבקרים (דג'נרס אף זכתה בפרס אמי כשותפה בכתיבת התסריט הטוב ביותר) אך עורר את זעמו של הימין הנוצרי. באלבמה סירבו לשדר את הפרק, ובמדינות אחרות משכו המפרסמים את הפרסומות שלהם מהתוכנית. זה היה אחד הפרקים האחרונים בעונה הרביעית של התוכנית (אחריו שודרו עוד שני פרקים בהם יצאה אלן מהארון בפני חבריה ובפני הבוס שלה). מאותו הרגע השתנתה הסדרה והחלה להתמקד בחייה של אישה לסבית בעולם הטרוסקסואלי. בעונה החמישית של הסדרה צנח המידרוג של הסדרה ב-22 אחוזים. הסיבה לירידה זו אינה ברורה. יש הטוענים שהסדרה הפכה "גאה מדי" - ושקהל סטרייטי לא יכול היה להזדהות עם הדמות. אחרים אומרים שהקהל האמריקאי לא היה מוכן עדיין לקבל דמות ראשית לסבית בסדרה. דג'נרס עצמה טענה שהסיבה העיקרית לירידה ברייטינג הייתה חוסר התמיכה של רשת ABC בסדרה (הרשת הפסיקה לשדר פרומואים לסדרה ובלחץ הימין הנוצרי אף צירפה אזהרת תוכן בעייתי לסדרה). ב-1998 ירדה הסדרה מהמסך. ביטול הסדרה סימן את תחילתו של משבר חריף בקריירה של אלן דג'נרס שנמשך כשלוש שנים.

המופע של אלן[עריכת קוד מקור | עריכה] ב-2000 התחילה הקריירה של דג'נרס להשתקם. היא הופיעה יותר ויותר בטלוויזיה האמריקאית, כשחקנית בסרט של HBO "אילו יכלו הקירות לדבר" (עם שרון סטון), כאורחת בתוכנית "ויל וגרייס" ו"עמוק באדמה". ב-2001 עלתה ברשת CBS סדרת סיטקום חדשה - "המופע של אלן". בסדרה גילמה דג'נרס את אלן ריצ'מונד, אשת היי-טק שמאבדת את משרתה וחוזרת לעיר הולדתה. הדמות בסדרה החדשה הייתה לסבית, אבל הסדרה לא התמקדה בנושא זה. הסיטקום זכה לביקורות טובות אך נכשל במבחן הקהל. הסדרה ירדה מהמסך אחרי שלושה עשר פרקים בלבד, אבל עוד לפני ירידת התוכנית כבר פנתה רשת NBC לדג'נרס והציעה לה להנחות תוכנית אירוח יומית.

תוכנית האירוח[עריכת קוד מקור | עריכה] בספטמבר 2003 עלתה לאוויר תוכנית האירוח של דג'נרס (The Ellen DeGeneres Show), שהספיקה לזכות ב-15 פרסי אמי מאז. התוכנית סיימה סופית את המשבר בקריירה של דג'נרס, שהפכה מסמל של הקהילה ההומו לסבית לסמל אמריקאי לכל דבר ולאחת הידועניות האהובות ביותר באמריקה. תרמו לכך גם הופעותיה המשכנעות של דג'נרס כמנחת טקסי האמי שנערכו לאחר פיגועי 11 בספטמבר ולאחר האסון של הוריקן קטרינה בניו אורלינס. דג'נרס עצמה התגייסה למאבק לשיקום ניו אורלינס (עיר הולדתה). ב-16 במאי 2008 הודיעה דג'נרס על אירוסיה לפורשיה דה רוסי בתוכניתה שצולמה יום לפני כן.

בין האישים שהתארחו בתוכניתה ברק אובמה, מישל אובמה, ביונסה, מריה קארי, ג'ורג' קלוני, ג'ניפר אניסטון, ליידי גאגא, סמואל ל. ג'קסון, ויל סמית', פמלה אנדרסון, כריסטיאן סלייטר, בר רפאלי, קייטי פרי, מיילי סיירוס, דמי לובאטו, אבריל לאבין, גל גדות, הילארי קלינטון ועוד מפורסמים רבים אחרים. תוכניתה מאופיינת בעיקר בחלוקת פרסים לקהל בשווי עשרות אלפי דולרים כמעט בכל תוכנית וריקוד של אלן בשיתוף הקהל בתחילת כל התוכנית.

תוכניתה של אלן משמשת, בין השאר, לשיווק וקידום חברות ענק וסרטים חדשים. כך למשל קידמה אלן את חברת פפסי, אפל, נטפילקס ורבות אחרות. כמו גם סרטים מפורסמים כמשחקי הרעב, סדרת מהיר ועצבני, מוצאים את דורי ועוד.

עם השנים הפכו חגים או אירועים מסוימים לתוכניות ספיישל מיוחדות בתוכנית כמו למשל בחג המולד, 12 תוכניות רצופות שבהן הקהל זוכה כל יום לשלל מתנות ופרסים בחינם ועזרה לאנשים שבעיות כלכליות מקשות עליהם לעבור את החג. ביום האם, כל הקהל בתוכנית הן נשים שכרגע נמצאות בהריון הראשון שלהן.

כיום התוכנית סוחפת אחריה מעריצים רבים במדינות שונות מכל העולם. הרייטינג של התוכנית עלה באופן משמעותי במהלך צילומי העונה השביעית כשאופרה ווינפרי הודיעה שהעונה הבאה, עונה 25, תהיה העונה האחרונה של תוכנית האירוח שלה.

בישראל התוכנית משודרת בערוץ הוט פמלי בחברת הכבלים הוט, ובעבר בערוץ yes stars Base בחברת הלווין, yes.

חייה האישיים[עריכת קוד מקור | עריכה] דג'נרס יצאה עם השחקנית אן הייש במשך כ-3 שנים. לאחר מכן ניהלה מערכת יחסים בת 4 שנים עם הצלמת והשחקנית אלכסנדרה הדיסון. משנת 2004 נמצאת דג'נרס במערכת יחסים עם השחקנית פורשיה דה רוסי. במאי 2008, בעקבות פסיקת בית המשפט העליון בקליפורניה שביטל את האיסור על נישואין חד מיניים, הודיעה דג'נרס בתוכנית הטלוויזיה שלה על אירוסיה לדה רוסי. ב-16 באוגוסט אותה שנה השתיים התחתנו.[1]

דג'נרס ובת זוגה ידועות באורח חייהן הטבעוני.[2]

ב-2016 החליט נשיא ארצות הברית ברק אובמה להעניק לה את מדליית החירות הנשיאותית, עיטור הכבוד הגבוה במדינה.[3]

אמריקן איידול[עריכת קוד מקור | עריכה] ב-9 בספטמבר 2009, החליפה דג'נרס את מקומה של המנחה הוותיקה פאולה עבדול בתוכנית אמריקן איידול. את ההודעה הרשמית הראשונה על המינוי המפתיע מסרה דג'נרס עצמה במהלך הטוק שואו שלה, במה שבתחילה נראה כקטע קומי על תוכניות ריאליטי אבל מהר מאוד הפך לווידוי מרגש של המנחה המוערכת. "אני מתה על ריאליטי. אתה אף פעם לא יודע מה יקרה", פתחה המנחה, לפני שהכריזה רשמית על המינוי. "אני הולכת להיות השופטת החדשה של אמריקן איידול ואני מאוד מתרגשת. לא החמצתי אף פרק מאז עלתה התוכנית לשידור אז התפקיד הזה הוא כמו חלום שהתגשם עבורי". דג'נרס התחייבה בחוזה שעליו חתמה לשמש כשופטת בתוכנית לפחות במשך 5 עונות.

הנחייה[עריכת קוד מקור | עריכה] בשנת 2001 הנחתה את טקס האמי. בשנת 2006 הנחתה את טקס האוסקר, ובשנת 2014 הנחתה בשנית את טקס פרסי אוסקר ה-86, במהלכו העלתה סלפי ששבר שיא היסטורי במספר השיתופים בטוויטר.

Eleveneleven[עריכת קוד מקור | עריכה] ב-2010 פתחה דג'נרס לייבל בשם Eleveneleven, המוקדש לאיתור זמרים חובבנים. הלייבל נפתח בעקבות פופולריות של הקלטת וידאו באתר Youtube של נער אמריקאי בן 11 בשם גרייסון צ'אנס. צ'אנס צולם בביצוע גרסה לשירה של ליידי גאגא Paparazzi בעודו מנגן בפסנתר, והקלטת ביצועו זכתה לפופולריות רבה ברחבי האינטרנט. צ'אנס הפך לאמן הראשון אשר הוחתם בלייבל. מספר חודשים לאחר מכן הוחתם נער נוסף, תום אנדרוז בן ה-16.

Om Ellen DeGeneres (Norsk)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ellen DeGeneres (pronounced /dɨˈdʒɛnərəs/; born January 26, 1958) is an American stand-up comedian, television host and actress. She hosts the syndicated talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and was also a judge on American Idol for one year, having joined the show in its ninth season.

DeGeneres has hosted both the Academy Awards and the Primetime Emmys. As a film actress, she starred in Mr. Wrong, appeared in EDtv and The Love Letter, and provided the voice of Dory in the Disney-Pixar animated film Finding Nemo, for which she was awarded a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress, the first and only time a voice performance won a Saturn Award.

She also starred in two television sitcoms, Ellen from 1994 to 1998 and The Ellen Show from 2001 to 2002. During the fourth season of Ellen in 1997, Degeneres came out publicly as a lesbian in an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
