There is no rest for the weary -- especially if you're the hardest working man in Hollywood. With only days to go before the Academy Awards, Ryan Seacrest took time out from his many hosting duties to attend the The Wrap pre-Oscar party at Culina, the new restaurant at the Four Seasons Los Angeles in Beverly Hills on Monday night. We caught up with the "American Idol" host to dish about Simon Cowell's engagement news and how he's preparing for the Oscar red carpet on Sunday.

Wonderwall: Lets get to the big news: Simon's engagement. Do you think he's really settling down?

Ryan Seacrest: Just like the Jonas Bros., I believe it's a commitment ring. I don't know if there's any more to it.

WW: I guess we'll have to wait and see. You've got a big day coming up working "E! Live from the Red Carpet" on Oscar Day. Any pampering sessions to prepare?

RS: I don't get a massage. We're there all day. It's a full day event.

WW: Do you do your film homework before the show?

RS: I watch the movies and try and think of a few things that people at home might want to know.

WW: What's your favorite part of the show?

RS: The best part of that show is not what you plan or what you do to prepare but for what you don't prepare for.
