Academy producers are hoping this speeds up the process of the show, since acceptance speeches are often what makes the show run so long.

"As you probably are aware and we don't want to embarrass anybody, but there is a long list of winners who have totally forgotten their directors, their husbands, their wives, their children and their animals," show producer David Hill said at the Oscars luncheon Monday.

Producers will feed the proper person's thank-you list into a teleprompter once the winner is announced.

"It's a permanent record, which could be kept, even framed and kept in the family forever," he added. "How cool is that?"
