Oscars Enter Twilight Zone

Next month's Academy Awards will have a 'scary' line-up.
Vampire movie stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will join Zac Efron and Miley Cyrus as presenters at this year's Academy Awards ceremony on 7 March.
Although not nominated for an award themselves, the Twilight series actors inclusion at the Oscars is an indication that show producers are banking on stars with youth appeal to boost the ceremony's ratings.
Lautner and Stewart will hand out awards for the first time, while Cyrus and Efron, star of the High School Musical series, will make their second appearances.
Comic actor Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will also co-host, with other presenters named so far including past winners Kate Winslet, Sean Penn and Penélope Cruz. The most nominated films are Avatar and The Hurt Locker, with nine nominations each.
The 82nd annual Academy Awards will take place at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.
