CBS News’ primetime newsmag “48 Hours” and Entertainment Weekly have teamed up to produce a pre-Academy Awards special that will air tonight on the Eye at 10 p.m.

Hourlong show marks the first time CBS has aired such an Oscar special, as well as the first time the network news division has collaborated with magazine EW.
