The movie producer Hawk Koch has been voted in as the new president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences - the organisation that stages the world-famous Oscars ceremony each year. Koch has a number of high profile movies in his CV, including Source Code and the Wayne's World movies. He will replace Tom Sherak, who has been in the role for three years.
Koch will spend a year in the unpaid role before the group's board of governors will be asked to vote him in, if they are happy with the work that he has done. One of the major tasks that he will need to undertake as the president of the Academy will be to select a producer for the Oscars ceremony, due to take place in 2013. Luckily, the 66 year-old has plenty of experience to call on - he served as vice president last year and is also the co-president of the Producers Guild of America. It may also aide him somewhat that his father, Howard Koch, took on the role in the late 1970s.
Koch has been the favourite to replace Tom Sherak for some time now. In the history of the Academy's 42 governors, he became the first candidate to receive over 50% of the vote. During Sherak's three-year term, he altered the voting procedure for the Academy Awards. Voters now have to rank the nominees in order of preference from 1 to 10.
