ABC Releases a Celeb-Filled Trailer for... the Oscars? (VIDEO)

Everyone loves awards shows, especially the awardiest of them all, the glitzy, glamorous, gown-y Academy Awards, where movies hope they'll end up with some new fine print to add to the covers of their DVD boxes. ABC will broadcast this year's ceremony on February 26, and to make sure you know about it, the network has put together a trailer that's pretty corny, just like this year's host.

Megan Fox! Josh Duhamel! Robin Williams! That lizard guy from The Cape, doing his best bartender-from-Terra Nova impression! The bank manager from The Dark Knight! And this year's host, Billy Crystal!

If trailers are supposed to give viewers a first impression of what the finished product will look like, it appears that Crystal will be hamming it up in his return to hosting duties, and that the show will feature a parade of celebrities from 2008. The trailer also reveals that Megan Fox still can't act. And reminds us that we don't care if she can.

The 84th Academy Awards will air on February 26 at 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific on ABC.
