LOS ANGELES -- Oscar won't be the only chiseled man in the spotlight at the 85th Academy Awards.

Telecast producers say the show will also feature a celebration of Bond, James Bond.

Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced Friday that the show will pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise, which they describe as "the longest-running motion picture franchise in history and a beloved global phenomenon."

The most recent Bond film, "Skyfall," was released in November and has made more than $1 billion worldwide -- a franchise record.

Nominations for this year's Academy Awards will be announced Jan. 10. The Oscars will be presented Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
