The Oscars are Sunday, and we're here with five moments you've got to watch for during the show.

At No. 5: Ellen's opening monologue. She'll be hosting for the first time since 2007. She was great then.

"What is this? Oh, it's a screenplay I wrote. That is so weird."

"It says 'screenplay' on it. It says 'screenplay' right there."

"That's interesting." (Via Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences)

And we're guessing she'll kill it this year. (Via ABC / Andrew Eccles)

No. 4: a big night for Jared Leto. He's already won the Golden Globe and the Screen Actors Guild Award. An Oscar win would be huge, but we only have one question ... (Via Focus Features / "Dallas Buyers Club")

Will his headline-making man bun be there? (Via People)

No. 3: a Jennifer Lawrence moment. She's nominated, she's presenting ... (Via Sony Pictures / "American Hustle")

Bottom line — you know you'll get something GIF-able out of this. (Via Mashable)

At No. 2, something more somber — we're looking for a touching tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman. He'll have a lot of friends in the room Sunday, and the talented actor deserves to be honored properly. (Via The Weinstein Company / "The Master", Miramax Films / "Doubt")

And at No. 1: a best actor win, and thus an awesome speech from Mr. Matthew McConaughey. (Via Time)

"Do you have anything in mind?"

"First three words I ever said on film, which are, 'all right, all right, all right.' ... If I start with 'all right, all right, all right' and 'thank you,' I really can't go wrong." (Via ABC / "Jimmy Kimmel Live")
