Oscar's keepers say nobody does it better than Billy Crystal, so he'll be back for next year's Academy Awards. "I guess I'm just a sucker for a free tuxedo," Crystal said Friday.

It will be Crystal's sixth appearance as master of ceremonies. He hosted four shows, starting in 1990, took a breather, then came back this year."Billy's performance last year was spectacular; the audience loves him," said Gil Cates, the Oscar producer. "There is nobody like him."

The 70th Academy Awards will be presented March 23.
