Around the remote: Chuck Barney's TV picks for Feb. 26-March 4

DON'T MISS: The 89th Academy Awards - Welcome to the big time, Jimmy Kimmel. The late-night goofball takes his first crack at hosting Hollywood's biggest bash and we wouldn't be at all surprised if politics is among the prime topics of conversation. (Go easy on those Mean Tweets). As for the movies, "La La Land" leads the nomination list with a record-tying 14 and is a good bet to dance off with the biggest prize of the night. Scheduled performers include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Auli'i Cravalho, Sting, Justin Timberlake and John Legend. 5:30 p.m. PT Sunday (8:30 ET), ABC.
