The 86th Academy Awards are Sunday night on ABC.  I like watching, because every year, no matter what there are a few surprises and sometimes the biggest surprise is how good the host is, or how good the opening number is.

This year Ellen Degeneres is hosting, and I can't wait to see her, but Billy Crystal has been my favorite host, by far.  He's had some pretty spectacular introductions, but none as good as this one from 2012.
