LOS ANGELES, CA – Actor Channing Tatum today announced the winners of “Team
Oscar” during his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”  The winners will deliver
Oscar statuettes to celebrity presenters at the 87th Oscars on Sunday, February
22, live on ABC.  Team Oscar winners were selected by Oscar producers Craig
Zadan and Neil Meron, Tatum, and the Academy, based on a creative 60-second
video on the subject, “The best piece of advice I’ve ever received.”

“Now
in its third year, our Team Oscar program has become a real tradition for The
Academy.  We love giving these incredibly talented young filmmakers the
experience of what it’s like to be on the Oscars stage, and making sure that
everyone on that stage is connected to the future of film,” says Zadan and
Meron.

The Team Oscar winners are:

  • Chris Carmona – Hometown: Bell, CA
  • Justin Craig – Hometown: Ballston Spa, NY
  • Kelly FitzGerald – Hometown: Geneva, NY
  • Justin Floyd – Hometown: Compton, CA
  • Rhianna Shaheen – Hometown: Virginia Beach, VA
  • Patrick Walker – Hometown: Atlanta, GA

The winners’ videos can be viewed here.

“I’m
so impressed by the creativity, passion and hard work that went into this year’s
Team Oscar submissions,” said Tatum.  “It was difficult to pick just six
winners, but I’ll be proud to share the Oscars stage with these talented, young
filmmakers in a few weeks.”

Team Oscar was open to U.S. citizens, ages 18
to 30.  Filmmakers submitted, through the Academy’s Facebook page, a creative
60-second video on the subject “The best piece of advice I’ve ever received.”

United Airlines, the official airline sponsor of the Academy and of the
Oscars telecast, will roll out the red carpet to fly the winners to Los Angeles
to participate in Team Oscar.

In addition to their appearance on the
Oscars, the winners will have a chance to explore the renowned collections at
the Academy’s Margaret Herrick Library, tour motion picture studios, and
participate in meet-and greets-with filmmakers at Oscar Week events.

The
87th Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 22, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre® at
Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the
ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. The Oscars, produced by Zadan and
