Will "La La Land vs. Moonlight" be the "Adele vs. Beyonce" of the Oscars? Maybe! Will the acceptance speeches veer into political diatribes about the president's policies, Streep-style? Probably! Will Hollywood look past Mel Gibson's drunken anti-Semetic rants and award him the Best Director trophy again? Doubtful!

No matter what happens at this year's Academy Awards, airing Sunday on ABC at 5:30 pm, the event remains a must-watch for movie geeks and celeb-obsessed fans around the globe. Here's a breakdown of the nominees in the major categories, to help you follow along during your Oscar party.
