Oscars to celebrate big-screen heroes during 86th annual ceremony

January 14, 2014 - 2:21 PM

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - It's a bird. It's a plane. It's the Oscars?

The producers of the 86th annual Academy Awards say this year's ceremony will honour big-screen, real-life heroes, superheroes, popular heroes and animated heroes — both past and present — as well as the filmmakers who bring them to life.

Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said Tuesday that they want to unify the March 2 show with an entertaining and emotional theme. They also teased that the Dolby Theatre ceremony will feature comedy from host Ellen DeGeneres, as well as a few musical surprises.

The nominations for this year's Oscars will be announced Thursday morning.
