I spend all year thinking about the Oscars, but somehow I've been even more excited for this year's event. Can you blame me? Last year was an incredible 12 months for movies, and I can't wait to find out who the be-all and end-all of award season decides to reward. Plus, Seth MacFarlane is hosting, and there'll be some amazing musical performances, including one by Adele. I've already got my seat on the couch all picked out for Feb. 24.
