LOS ANGELES (AP) — The first Oscar recipients of the new year were announced Thursday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Lens makers Cooke Optics Limited will receive an Award of Merit Oscar at the academy's Scientific and Technical Awards banquet Feb. 9 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
