Welcome back to "Gma." The oscars, just two days away but three big Hollywood names have stepped behind the camera for our sponsor Walmart. Melissa Mccarthy, Dee Rees and Nancy Meyers to make minute movies inspired by Walmart's blue box and we'll see their films during Sunday's big show. Walmart is also supporting aspiring young filmmakers with its internship partnership with the academy of motion picture pars and sciences called the golden program. Here's one of their interns, Tracey aivaz. Hey, Tracey. I love meeting young people just getting going in their careers. There's got to be people that have inspired you. If as a director someday you were to get an academy award who would you thank up on that stage? That's an amazing question. I think first and foremost my family has been the biggest support group of my life. Yeah. They're there. Along with professors and, of course, the academy gold program, the directors over there have been super supportive throughout the process. I like that speech. You can't go wrong with that. Always thank the academy because then you get a second Oscar. A little surprise for you here. We want to bring in Kirsten Evans who is with our sponsor Walmart. She is a senior vice president. Hi. I'm going to let you take it away. She has something she wants to@ tell you. Congratulations on being selected as an academy gold intern. Such a fabulous thing. And today we'd like to tell you something more. Oh, good. As you know, we have been working with three directors creating 60-second films inspired by the Walmart blue shipping box. And today we want to invite you to be the fourth director. Yeah, baby. Are you serious? Oh, my god. We want you to create your own 60-second film based on the walmart.com shipping box and we'd like you to come to the bentonville film festival this spring and premiere your movie. Oh, gosh. So amazing. Thank you. All right. Thank you. Thank you. How about that for Tracey
