Tom Hanks Will Present the First Oscar

Hey, Tom Hanks hasn't actually acted in a movie in awhile (and no, we're not counting Toy Story 3), so presumably he's got some free time to learn how to read a TelePrompTer and properly hand off shiny statuettes. And that's why he's been chosen as the first presenter at this year's Academy Awards. He'll be be presenting the Art Direction and Cinematography categories. [Deadline]
