'Twilight' Heads to the Oscars

Now, before you think that the Academy has decided to arbitrarily give the Twilight franchise an Oscar for simply being awesome, let me bring you back down to earth: that's not happening. However, Twilight fans may now have another reason to watch the Academy Awards ceremony on March 7th as it's been announced that both Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be presenting an award (sadly, we don't believe they'll be bringing a clip from Eclipse to show – sorry fans).

Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart

It's not clear at this time whether Stewart and Lautner will be presenting the same award (though you'd think they'd pair them up), but it's a smart move on the Academy's part in their attempt to skew a bit younger to help bring in more viewers. For example, in addition to Stewart and Lautner, the Academy of Motions Picture Arts and Sciences has also announced that both Zac Efron and Miley Cyrus will be part of the Oscar ceremony in some capacity, too. Seeing as both Efron and Cyrus have a musical background, I wouldn't be surprised if they show up in some sort of song-and-dance routine alongside hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.
 
Does knowing that Stewart, Lautner, Efron and Cyrus will be a part of the Oscar ceremony make you want to watch it more?
