Color Blind: Celebrity Interracial Couples
For many in Hollywood, love is color blind. It's not uncommon for celebrities to date people of other races.

Star-Studded Oscars Presenters Revealed - See The Full List
Robert De Niro, Sidney Poitier, Brad Pitt, and Kerry Washington are among the Hollywood stars set to present awards to their colleagues this Sunday at the Academy Awards.

It stands to reason that Daniel Day-Lewis will be presenting the Best Actor award, since he won it last year. The same logic points to Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence presenting Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress, respectively.

The Oscar producers have hinted at a "hero theme" this year. Neil Meron told EW, "... we have...

Seven-time Oscar nominee Robert De Niro landed his first nod since 1992 (Cape Fear) for his role as an obsessive sports fan & bookie in Silver Linings Playbook. It's been over 30 years since his last win (1981's Raging Bull), and we like his chances.

Christoph Waltz, who won in this category in 2010 for Inglourious Basterds is nominated for his second award in the same category, again for a Quentin Tarantino film, Django Unchained.
