LOS ANGELES (AP) — You know those tall, leggy beauties that normally carry the Oscar trophies so the stars can present them?

They've been 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 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.

One is Jennifer Brofer. The 30-year-old Marine Corps veteran is now a University of Texas film student, and she says just attending the Oscars "is huge" for a film student. In her words, "This is where we aspire to be one day."
