Daniel Craig and his fellow Bond actors won't get together at the Oscars

Academy Awards producers have dismissed reports that all six James Bond actors are being brought together for the ceremony.

The 50th anniversary of 007 is being celebrated at the Oscars with a special on-stage performance.

But telecast producer Craig Zadan told Deadline: "It's something else, something very unique and very exciting, but no, we're not getting the Bonds together."

It had been suggested that Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig would feature in a special segment at the Oscars.

But Pierce recently hinted he may not be part of the Bond tribute.

Asked about the reunion while doing his shopping in Malibu, he laughed: "Well, they'll be missing one."

Adele has already been confirmed to perform her Oscar-nominated theme from Skyfall on the night.

You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
