Presenters Anne Hathaway (C, R) and James Franco (C, L) and winners celebrate at the end of the 83rd annual Academy Awards at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood on February 27, 2011.

One thing that will be different about this year's award show is the person handing the Oscar statue to the presenter. The tall model will be replaced by film students.

Six college students from across the country won a contest to help present the Oscar statuettes this year. We'll speak to Tatenda Mbudzi, a UCLA Film student who’ll be presenting the statues.
