The hype is building for this year’s Academy Awards.

On Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences posted online a behind-the-scenes video with host Billy Crystal in which he calls the ceremony “the granddaddy of all the shows.”

He further stated that he feels honored that the Academy “trusted” him to host the broadcast for a ninth time.

The 63-year-old Crystal wouldn’t reveal what he has in store for the Oscars, saying, “A magician never tells his tricks.”

Nominations for the 84th Academy Awards will be announced next Tuesday.

ABC will air the Oscars ceremony on February 26.
