"We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday," this year's producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Chicago) said.

"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."

Skyfall, the 23rd instalment in the series, recently became the first Bond film to cross the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office.

Nominations for the 85th Academy Awards will be announced on Thursday, January 10 at 5.30am PT (1.30pm GMT).

The ceremony will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on February 24.
