Why the Oscars love Billy Crystal

Billy Crystal is considered by many to be the host with the most. A frequent master of ceremonies at the Academy Awards, the comedian almost always gets the laughs. On Sunday Feb. 26, the actor-comedian will have his ninth go-around as the show's emcee (he first hosted in 1990).

Crystal has provided some of the most memorable, and funny, show-opening montages and mid-show ad-lib bits in the ceremony's history.

The first clip below is from his last appearance in 2004 where he answered the then-important question on many viewers minds: What are the stars thinking while in their seats?

And for those who have not seen the upcoming 84th Academy Awards teaser ad, you can view it below. Be sure to tune in for Crystal's performance next Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
