There's no word on the winners, but Nikki Finke has eight "spoilers" for Sunday's Oscar telecast. Some of the more intriguing tidbits:

(Stop here if you want to be surprised!)

—Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Francis Coppola are set to present the Best Director award. Could it be a prelude to pal Martin Scorsese finally winning an Oscar?


—No acting awards will be handed out until the final third of the telecast, so feel free to eat a late dinner.

—Michael Mann (yes!) and Nancy Meyers (ehh!) are overseeing some of those awesome movie clip montages.
