Oscars to celebrate big-screen heroes
LOS ANGELES – 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 honor 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.
