The countdown to the Academy Awards is on, and ET's Rob Marciano is with Oscar show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron to get the skinny on Hollywood's biggest night, from what will happen if it rains to whether or not the rumors are indeed true that host Ellen Degeneres will wear a dress!
This is the second year that the acclaimed motion picture, television and theater producing duo have overseen the Oscar telecast. Among their credits, Zadan and Meron served as exec producers for the 2002 Best Picture winner Chicago; Zadan produced the original Footloose as well as the 2011 update; and the pair's work includes the films Hairspray and The Bucket List, the TV show SMASH and Broadway's Tony Award-winning revivals of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Promises, Promises.
