LOS ANGELES (February 21, 2013)--The tall, leggy beauties who normally carry the Oscar trophies that the stars present will be replaced this year by aspiring filmmakers.
Six college students from across the country won a contest to help present the Oscar statuettes this year.
All six of the winning students will walk on the Oscar stage during Sunday's ceremony.
They're each getting a makeover and formal tuxedo or gown for the event as well.
Jennifer Brofer, 30, a Marine Corps veteran, is one of the six.
She’s now a University of Texas film student, and she says just attending the Oscars "is huge" for a film student.
"This is where we aspire to be one day,” she said.
