There’s nothing Ellen Degeneres likes more than her hometown of New Orleans and male strippers — at least if you buy the intro that actor Channing Tatum (Magic Mike21 Jump Street) received during a satellite appearance on Friday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he kicked off this year’s Team Oscar college search.

The competition is aimed at giving young filmmakers an opportunity to appear on stage during the live Oscar broadcast.

Tatum and Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will pick the six winners of this year’s competition. Students who win will be flown out to attend the 86th annual Academy Awards where they will deliver Oscar statuettes to celebrity presenters on stage.

“It’s inspiring to see talented young people passionate about movies, and I’m excited to help shine a spotlight on them through Team Oscar,” said Tatum who will return to The Ellen DeGeneres Show sometime early next year to announce the Team Oscar winners. Team Oscar is open to U.S. college students and runs through Jan. 5, 2014. To enter, students must visit The Academy’s Facebook page and submit a creative short video explaining how they will contribute to the future of movies. Additionally, entrants will be asked to answer a brief essay question on a similar topic.

Ellen DeGeneres to host the Oscars for second time

The Oscars have gone from naughty to nice.

Ellen Degeneres will be taking over the emcee duties for the March 2 Academy Awards telecast, her second turn overseeing Hollywood’s biggest event.

Degeneres returns to the Oscar stage as the kinder, more self-deprecating comedian compared to Seth MacFarlane, who brought some much-needed edge but also divided some viewers with his more acidic, raunchier comedy style when he hosted last February.

“I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say — the third time’s the charm,” DeGeneres joked in a statement released by the Academy.
