Kiwi director Taika Waititi appears on The Ellen Show with Ellen DeGeneres

Must See 12/02/2020

How cool is it seeing Kiwis doing amazing things!

Taika Waititi, who grew up on the East Coast of the North Island, recently won his very first Academy Award - and became the very first indigenous person to do so.

Following his incredible Oscar win, Ellen DeGeneres invited Taika and the star of Jojo Rabbit 12-year-old Roman Griffin Davis onto her couch to chat about the Oscar win and the film.

While the audience of Ellen didn't quite get Taika's hilarious Kiwi humour, Ellen had loads of praise for the film - including crowning the film one of her all-time favourites!
