Ellen DeGeneres is a daytime TV juggernaut and entertainment pioneer.  Her hit syndicated talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, is a haven for discussion, deadpan comedy, and a collector of over 30 Daytime Emmys.  She's been included in Forbes's "100 Most Powerful" and Time's "100 Most Influential" lists and has hosted the Oscars, the Emmys, and the Grammys to wide acclaim.  DeGeneres's comedy career took off with the show, These Friends of Mine, which was renamed Ellen after the first season. The popular sitcom made history when Ellen's character came out of the closet in 1997, becoming the first-ever gay lead character on television.  The episode garnered Ellen a coveted Peabody Award and played to a record 46 million viewers. DeGeneres went on to star in hit HBO specials, the critically acclaimed CBS sitcom The Ellen Show, and to voice the beloved Dory in Finding Nemo.
