HollywoodNews.com: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and mtvU, MTV’s 24-hour college network, today announced that three teams of college journalists have advanced as finalists in the 2011 Oscars Correspondent Contest. Each team will head to Hollywood for Oscar Week as they compete for a coveted spot on the red carpet at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards®. The finalists are (listed in alphabetical order by university):

Hofstra University, Long Island, NY – Luz Pena (anchor) and Philip Robibero (videographer)

University of Georgia, Athens – Blake Mitchell (anchor) and David Torcivia (videographer)

University of Southern California, Los Angeles – Sarah Erickson (anchor) and Joel Kutz (videographer)

New videos from each finalist team, along with the original entry videos, will be posted online at http://oscars.mtvu.com for a final round of online polling Monday, February 7, through Friday, February 18, at 2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET.

All three teams will cover Academy Awards pre-events in Hollywood, including the Animated Feature Symposium, Foreign Language Film Award photo op, the Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Symposium and the Governors Ball preview.
