Stone can be seen in the new Warner Bros. film Gangster Squad opposite Ryan Gossling. She also starred in The Amazing Spider-Man as Gwen and will be in the sequel due out in 2014.
The Academy Awards will be held live Sunday, February 24 in Los Angeles.
Last last week we learned that the James Bond franchise will receive a special celebration during the Oscars. “We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday,” said producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. “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.”
