It's Oscaring Time!

Alright fine, I admit it. When I saw the words "First Oscar Trailer Revealed" I too was secretly hoping it was a remake of Stallone's 1991 Mobster comedy, Oscar. I can't help it. Of course that's partially because I can't resist getting excited by the mention of anything Tim Curry related (I had to get a restraining order on the word 'it' because of it). Alas that Oscar is not the one to be gracing us with its presence anytime soon. For now we shall have to deal with our golden statuette and the first trailer giving us a hint of what to expect.

I have to be honest, I like Billy Crystal. Always have, and likely always will. He's just got that likable sort of state presence. So as a host I'm in his corner 100%. Of course a commercial for the Oscars being headlined by Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox isn't the most inspiring. Especially when you consider the two frontrunners - The Descendants and The Artist - are a far cry from the fanbases that get amped up for the likes of them. Though a timely appearance by Robin Williams, the dynamic Vinnie Jones (kidding), and knight of the 'seriously, why is he not in more movies' round table William Fichtner (not kidding) does inspire some home.

Be sure and check out the trailer below and let me know what has you excited about this year's Oscars!

I'm excited, but I haven't seen many of the films and it's pretty rough to get up at 00:00 and watch some award show until school starts. Not that I haven't done it two times... but I'm not sure if I can take it this year.

I love Billy Crystal too, glad he's back hosting again. But Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox headlining the commercial is pretty daft.

But, really, a trailer for the Oscars? Who doesn't know what it's about?
