UCLA Student Makes Oscars Appearance

Tatenda Mbudzi helps hand out the coveted awards during Hollywood's biggest night.

A UCLA student walked the same stage as dozens of big-name celebrities Sunday night at the 85th annual Academy Awards.

Tatenda Mbudzi was one of six students from across the country who delivered Oscar statuettes to presenters during the show after winning the "Oscar Experience College Search" contest.

As part of the contest, the 25-year-old film student submitted a video explaining how he would contribute to the future of movies.

Mbudzi told UCLA Today he wants to "tell stories about underdogs and coming-of-age stories."

The contest received more than 1,000 applications, according to UCLA Today.
