With just a week to go before the Oscars, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences decided to just release the full list of presenters all at once. The list includes several A-listers from today’s most acclaimed movies, plus some surprise past Hollywood stars.
Last week, the Academy and producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan confirmed that every member of last year’s acting class will be back. Jennifer Lawrence, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway and Daniel Day-Lewis will all present awards, likely to this year’s acting winners.
Rather than have us wait for daily announcements, the producers just released the full list all at once today. “We are very excited that the Hollywood community will be turning out in force for Sunday’s Oscar ceremony,” the producers said. “We sought to include a tremendous diversity of stars to represent not only this year’s nominees, but the legacy of the motion picture business as well.”
The list does American Hustle’s Amy Adams, who is up for Best Actress, and her co-star, Bradley Cooper, who is up for Best Supporting Actor. Jennifer Garner and Matthew McConaughey, who star in this year’s Best Picture nominee Dallas Buyers Club, is on the list, as is Benedict Cumberbatch, who starred in another Best Picture nominee, 12 Years A Slave.
Past Oscar winners Goldie Hawn, Sally Field, Whoopi Goldberg, Sidney Poitier, Robert De Niro, Penelope Cruz, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx and Charlize Theron will also present.
The rest of the presenters are Kristen Bell, Jessica Biel, Jim Carey, Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Zac Efron, Harrison Ford, Andrew Garfield, Chris Hemsworth, Kate Hudson, Samuel L. Jackson, Angelina Jolie, Michael B. Jordan, Anna Kendrick, Ewan McGregor, Bill Murray, Kim Novak, Tyler Perry, Brad Pitt, Gabourey Sidibe, Will smith, Jason Sudeikis, Channing Tatum, John Travolta, Kerry Washington and Naomi Watts.
The Oscars are this Sunday on ABC with Ellen DeGeneres hosting.
