Hollywood's biggest night of the year arrives with tomorrow's 91st Academy Awards show (join our FREE Oscar contest here). And despite not having a host, as well as a majority of the races feeling like predetermined stone-cold locks, the evening's most prestigious award actually holds the most intrigue and that provides enough reason to get excited for the ceremony.
