OSCARS' 007 Tribute Will Not Include Reunion of 'Bond' Portrayers

The 85th Academy Awards will include a tribute to the James Bond movie franchise, which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year, however Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron revealed to Deadline that the segment will not include every actor who has portrayed the role together on stage.

In their announcement, the producing team revealed, "We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday. Starting with 'Dr. No' back in 1962, the 007 movies have become the longest-running motion picture franchise in history and a beloved global phenomenon."

However when asked about a possible 'Bond' reunion on Oscar night, they clarified, "It's something else, something very unique and very exciting but no, we're not getting the Bonds together".

The latest Bond film Skyfall has been nominated for five Academy Awards this year including Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Score and Best Song. Grammy-award winning artist Adele will perform the film's Oscar-nominated theme song during the ceremony.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, 2013, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and televised live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
