Oscar won't be the only chiselled man in the spotlight at the 85th Academy Awards.

Producers say the show will feature a celebration of Bond, James Bond.

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced the film awards show will pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise. They call it "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 dollars worldwide, a franchise record.

Nominations for this year's Academy Awards will be announced on January 10. The Oscars will be presented on February 24 in Los Angeles.
