86th Academy Awards aka "The Oscars" Trailer

Check Out the Trailer for the 86th Academy Awards, Featuring Ellen DeGeneres. Here we go!

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released a new teaser trailer for the 86th Annual Academy Awards, a one-minute musical piece directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) that has returning host Ellen DeGeneres lip-syncing to the tune of Fitz and the Tantrums' "The Walker" with 250 dancers in tuxedoes. It's part of the Academy's new "Here We Go!" campaign which features a striking image of some of DeGeneres' back-up dancers forming a giant Oscar statue.

“I had the best time making this,” said DeGeneres. “I love Paul, I love tWitch, I love Fitz and I like most of the Tantrums.”

Paul Feig, a new Academy member, conceived and directed the trailer, which was choreographed by dancers Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker. Fitz and The Tantrums’ “The Walker” is the new single from their critically acclaimed second full length release, “More Than Just a Dream,” on Atlantic/Elektra Records. The band’s first single, “Out of My League,” went #1 on Billboard’s Alternative Song Chart.

The trailer (below) is running in theatres nationwide since the beginning January 3, 2014.


The presentation of the Academy Awards® for outstanding film achievements of 2013, produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will be presented on Oscar Sunday, March 2, 2014, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® and televised live on the ABC Television Network and in more than 225 countries.
