Academy Awards 2012: All eyes on Crystal, Cohen [Video]
With barely 48 hours until the Academy Awards, all eyes are on Billy Crystal, who will host the Oscars for a ninth time on Sunday. Will he bring back the magic that made some of his earlier gigs memorable -- or simply seem out of step with a younger demographic? And speaking of youthful sensibilities, will Sacha Baron Cohen try to pull off a stunt on (or near) the red carpet as he promotes his upcoming comedy "The Dictator"? The Times' Nicole Sperling and Steven Zeitchik take a look in a new video.
