In the world of television heavyweights, there's the NFL and then there's everyone else. This year's Super Bowl, for instance, was the most watched TV show in American history. So when the NFL starts talking about changing its schedule, everyone in Hollywood is listening, especially the show that may be most affected by any change: the Oscars.

Yes, according to Variety, the Academy Awards may soon be faced with the prospect of moving their telecast to Monday night in order to avoid conflicting with the NFL's biggest game -- a conflict that the Oscars would stand no chance at winning. The reason for the change? The NFL is planning to expand from their current 16 game schedule to an 18 game schedule, which would push the Super Bowl to the end of February, right when the Oscars usually air.
