UNDATED (AP) -- The world's future filmmakers got a preview of the kind of Hollywood glamour and glory that could be theirs someday as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented its 40th annual Student Academy Awards.
Sixteen college students from around the globe were honored at the Saturday night ceremony, held at the academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills and hosted by onetime Student Academy Award winner Bob Saget. Presenters included writer-director Kimberly Peirce and actors Clark Gregg, Jason Schwartzman and Quvenzhane Wallis.
This year's student honors included two each from USC, Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida and the School of Visual Arts in New York.
Past winners have gone on to receive eight Oscars and 46 Oscar nominations. Could Saturday night's winners be far behind?
