Watch: Trailer for the 84th Academy Awards Hosted by Billy Crystal
"They've been charged with tracking down a legend…" And here we go. The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences teamed up with Funny or Die to create this trailer for the 84th Academy Awards, coming up this February. The trailer, which is even playing in theaters (my goodness), features Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox, of all people, on a worldwide hunt for Oscar host Billy Crystal. It's funny and has some good moments, but was not what I was expecting for an "Oscar trailer" - but maybe that's just me. The Oscar show is on February 26th, but we've still got the nominations coming January 24th. Check out the trailer!

The official trailer of the 84th Academy Awards from YouTube (via Deadline). Watch the ceremony live on ABC on Sunday, February 26th. The 84th Academy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 24th, 2012. We also featured the official Oscar poster recently, celebrating a look back at some classic Best Picture winners. I was hoping we'd see a similar look back in this trailer, but they went for the hard sell with Duhamel & Fox, classy. Award season continues to rage on in 2012, which means there's lots of exciting stuff like this to cover, so stay tuned for more Academy Awards updates. Celebrate the Movies!
