Check Out the Trailer for the 86th Academy Awards, Featuring Ellen DeGeneres


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released a new teaser trailer for the 86th Annual Academy Awards aka “The Oscars,” 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–you can see the full size image by clicking on the image or going here.
