[Movies] 86th Academy Awards To Celebrate Movie Heroes
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.14.2014

Coming Soon reports that there will be a tribute to movie heroes at the 86th Annual Academy Awards including Superman, Batman, The Incredibles and more. The event airs on March 2 on ABC.

Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said: "We wanted to unify the show with an entertaining and emotional theme. People around the world go to the movies to be inspired by the characters they see on the screen. By celebrating the gamut of heroes who have enriched our movie-going experience, we hope to create an evening of fun and joy. And that includes the filmmakers and actors who take risks and stimulate us with provocative subjects and daring characters. They are all heroes in the cinematic landscape. Of course, there will be no shortage of comedy with Ellen DeGeneres as our host. There may also be a few musical surprises along the way."

The Academy will also present "The Oscars Celebrates Movie Heroes", an exhibition in the Grand Lobby Gallery of the Academy's building in Beverly Hills. It will be on display from this Friday until Wednesday, March 5. It will feature photographs and posters from seventy movies from 90 years, along with video montages with excerpts from classic and modern films. It includes real-life heroes (Gandhi, Silkwood), superheroes (Superman, The Dark Knight), animated heroes (Shrek, The Incredibles), action heroes (Seven Samurai, Gladiator), literary heroes (To Kill A Mockingbird, Grapes of Wrath) and more.

The nominations will be announced on Thursday at 5:35 AM PT at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater by Cheryl Boone Isaacs and Chris Hemsworth. The award ceremony will air at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, aired live on ABC. It will be seen live in over 225 countries and territories worldwide.
