LOS ANGELES, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- Hollywood's 85th Academy Awards ceremony will include a tribute to the James Bond movie franchise, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, organizers said.

"We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday," producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a joint statement Friday. "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."

The 85th Academy Awards nominations will be announced Jan. 10. The Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented Feb. 24.
