  • BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has elected producer Hawk Koch as its new president.

    The group's board of governors elected Koch to its top office Tuesday for a one-year-term.

    He served as first vice president of the film academy last year and has represented its producers branch as a governor for nine years.

    Koch's credits include "Losing Isaiah," ''Gorky Park" and "Source Code." He succeeds film executive Tom Sherak, who served three consecutive terms as president.
