Hollywood power players won't be the only ones on the Oscars stage come March 2. Six college filmmakers, who were just announced on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, will get the chance to participate in the big night, too. How'd they get so lucky?
The students entered a contest created by the producers of the Academy Awards, each submitting a 60-second video about how they plan to contribute to the film industry. The winners will hand Oscar statuettes to celebrity presenters during the show and will also participate in studio tours and meet-and-greets with filmmakers leading up to the event. (You don't have to be a film major to be jealous of that!)
