By Daniel S Levine,

More members of the 2013 Oscars acting class have been added to the roster of 86th Academy Awards presenters. Best Actor winner Daniel Day-Lewis and Best Supporting Actress Anne Hathaway will both be on hand to present.

Day-Lewis’ appearance was announced by producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron on Monday. The British actor is the only person to win the Best Actor Oscar three times, a feat he completed by winning last year for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. He played the 16th President of the U.S. in the film, which told the story of how Lincoln passed the Constitutional amendment to end slavery. His other Oscar wins came for My Left Foot (1989) and There Will Be Blood (2007).

The Academy announced this morning that Hathaway will present. She won her first Oscar last year for her supporting role in Les Miserables. She played Fantine and got to sing “I Dreamed A Dream.”

Jennifer Lawrence was named the first presenter last week. She won Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook and won a BAFTA Sunday for her Oscar-nominated supporting part in American Hustle.

Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor last year for Django Unchained and will likely also present. Oscar tradition has the previous year’s acting class give out the Oscars to the next class.

The Oscars are on March 2 on ABC. Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the ceremony.
