LOS ANGELES—It's a bird. It's a plane. It's the Oscars?

The producers of the 86th annual Academy Awards say this year's ceremony will honor big-screen, real-life heroes, superheroes, popular heroes and animated heroes—both past and present—as well as the filmmakers who bring them to life.

Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said Tuesday that they want to unify the March 2 show with an entertaining and emotional theme. They also teased that the Dolby Theatre ceremony will feature comedy from host Ellen DeGeneres, as well as a few musical surprises.

The nominations for this year's Oscars will be announced Thursday morning.
