LOS ANGELES -- The producers behind the last two Oscar telecasts are coming back for a third time.

The film academy announced Monday that Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will return to produce the 87th annual Academy Awards. The two were responsible for the 2013 show hosted by Seth MacFarlane and this year's telecast starring Ellen DeGeneres.

Film academy chief Dawn Hudson said Zadan and Meron "are masters at tapping into the zeitgeist." This year's show set social media records when DeGeneres' star-studded selfie became the most re-tweeted image ever.

Meron said on Twitter on Monday that it's "a great honor" to produce the Oscar show again.

The 87th Oscars will be held Feb. 22, 2015, at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre.
