Well, it's that time of year again: time for the pomp, pageantry, and prognostication of the Academy Awards.

Chris Rock returns to host one of the most nail-biting Oscars in years, given that the Best Picture category has yet to produce a bonafide frontrunner. The biggest stars, both in front of and behind the camera, will also be on hand to (hopefully) make some meme-worthy television to chat about come Monday morning.

But if it seems like the same old, same old, it's not – there are still plenty of reasons to watch this year's show. In fact, we've got ten right here.
