2. The Outfits, Obvi
One of the big reasons to watch the Oscars –- and the hours-long pre-shows -- is to see what everyone is wearing. And this year will be no different. There are some very glamorous people nominated this year who are going to look absolutely stunning on the big night, including Emma Stone, Ruth Negga, Natalie Portman, Viola Davis, Ryan Gosling, and Mahershala Ali.
Hell, considering what a weirdo Michael Shannon is, it'll be worth watching just to see what he comes dressed as. Board shorts could be considered Awards chic, under the right circumstances.
