"After being the first outlet to report that M.I.A. had delivered her baby and would not be performing at this year's 81st Academy Awards, HitFix can now exclusively confirm that Robert Pattinson will be presenting an award during this year's telecast.I hope it's true! Whee. You can also read about it over at MTV.
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."
