This year’s Oscars will have no host and, if you believe the pundits, no suspense.

Joaquin Phoenix, Renée Zellweger, Brad Pitt and Laura Dern accepted trophies five weeks ago at the Golden Globes … and at the SAG Awards two weeks later … and at the British Film and Television Academy Awards last weekend. And as practice makes perfect, they’re really honing their craft!

Actually, Pitt didn’t give a speech at the BAFTAs because he didn’t make the trip to London. He was likely too busy working out new jokes for the Oscars. Dude’s having the time of his life. And why not? He leaves every show with a trophy. As Pitt said at the National Board of Review gala last month, “It’s nice to be able to leave this carrying something other than George Clooney.”

Of course, there might be some drama in the air before the final envelope is opened, though sometimes I wonder if most of the good vibrations being sent to Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” are coming from people (like me) leading with their hearts and not their heads. This is, after all, the Oscars. Ninety-one years of bad faith and we’re still wishing for good things.

But that’s why we watch. Well, that and things like Billy Porter walking the red carpet, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga having a moment, and Julia Roberts randomly returning to the stage for exactly 11 seconds to wrap up the evening and tell her children goodnight.

Those things all happened at the 91st Oscars. What awaits us this year, other than the inevitable heartbreak and disappointment?

The motion picture academy caught flak last year when it proposed handing out some crafts awards during commercial breaks to shorten the ceremony. “In the history of CINEMA, masterpieces have existed without sound, without color, without a story, without actors and without music,” “Roma” filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón tweeted. “No one single film has ever existed without CINEMAtography and without editing.”

So, yes, rest assured there will be 24 Oscars bestowed Sunday night, though producer Stephanie Allain promises some “unexpected things” early in the show to keep us on our toes. Given the spotty history of the show, this sounds vaguely threatening, but we’ll cross our fingers and think good thoughts.

In years when the outcome of the best picture race remains uncertain, there’s often an award presented earlier in the show that offers a telltale clue. The moment “Green Book” won the Oscar for original screenplay last year pretty much ended “Roma’s” chance to become the first non-English-language film to win best picture.

This year, the revelation might come in production design, where the presumed best picture front-runners — Sam Mendes’ war film “1917″ and Bong Joon Ho’s wickedly funny thriller “Parasite” — are competing against each other. A win for either could indicate broad academy support. Or “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” could prevail for its superb time-capsule re-creation of 1969 Los Angeles and we’ll be left reading the room, looking for clues and bracing ourselves for “unexpected things.”
