Ellen Degeneres Ellen Degeneres

Ellen DeGeneres' five new commercials for J.C. Penney will debut during Sunday's Academy Awards.

The premieres come two weeks after conservative group One Million Moms protested DeGeneres' new gig as a J.C. Penney spokeswoman and called for the department store chain to fire her for jumping on the "pro-gay bandwagon." J.C. Penney stood by DeGeneres — and the comedian even found an unlikely ally in Bill O'Reilly.
