Thankfully, the 84th annual Academy Awards for film achievement in 2011 is not yet upon us. They’ll be held on Sunday, Feb. 26. But already Academy President Tom Sherak told me that he hopes to name the producers by August. That same month, Sherak will be up for re-election for his third and final term as President. Last year, on June 22, he named Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer to co-produce. But don’t look for that kind of early announcement this time. He did confirm he will be looking for a producing duo as has been the custom since 2008.
