Watch the 2017 Academy Award nominations. Who will be the biggest Oscar surprise?

The Oscars

With Billy Crystal stepping in as host after Eddie Murphy bowed out of the gig on the heels of show producer Brett Ratner's run of foot-in-mouth disease, an excited anticipation has set in for the 2012 Academy Awards ceremony. Crystal has long been an audience favorite with his film parodies and spontaneity. He's a known quantity who can still offer up a surprise or two. Watch the festivities Feb. 26 on ABC.
