'Twilight' star Robert Pattinson confirmed for Oscars


HitFix can exclusively confirm that Robert Pattinson will be presenting an award at this year's 81st Academy Awards.

The "Twilight" star had long been rumored to appear on Hollywood's biggest night, but barring any unforeseen last minute conflicts, he'll be giving the franchise's legion of fans something to look forward to on Oscar Sunday.

Still unclear is whether Pattinson's "Twilight" co-star Kristen Stewart will also appear on the telecast and what award he will specifically present. And, obviously, speculation will now run rampant on who Pattinson's date down the red carpet will be.

Pattinson rose to super-stardom after being chose to play the dreamy vampire Edward Cullen in "Twilight." The first in a series of big screen adaptations of Stephenie Meyer's popular book series, "Twilight" astounded the industry by raking in $188 million domestically and $357 million worldwide.

The 22-year-old Brit will appear later this spring as Salvador Dali in the indie drama "Little Ashes." He's expected to begin production next month on the "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon" which will be released Nov. 20.

I never watch this sort of thing, but I have it set up to record...just because way back when there was a prospect that Rob might present. I'm so pathetic, but completely thrilled, just like a teenage girl, that he's going to do this.
