Oh, the Oscars. That magical night to watch the glamor, glitz, pomp and circumstance of Hollywood's biggest night.

Well, this year (that would be 2014), the 86th annual Academy Awards — also known as the Oscars —will be at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 2nd on ABC.They will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. The last time she hosted in 2007, she drew in39.9 million viewers. Seth MacFarlane, last year'smuch-maligned host, brought in40.3 million viewers but was so hated, it's considered a good thing he isn't returning.“Traumatized critics exhale: I’m unable to do the Oscars again, tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep,” he wrote on Twitter.
Most people will be tuning in to seeDavid O. Russell's "American Hustle" and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" going head-to-head — the two films tied for the most nominations with 10 each. Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" was right behind with nine. It's an incredibly crowded year, with nine films up for Best Picture, so voting for the final awards could go almost anyway. We'll find out for sure on Sunday, March 2nd at 8:30 p.m. on ABC.
