Tina Fey and Whoopi Goldberg headline diverse list of Oscar presenters
The Oscars are exactly one month away, and the Academy unveiled its first round of presenters for the upcoming ceremony.
Benicio Del Toro, Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Ryan Gosling, Kevin Hart, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Charlize Theron, Jacob Tremblay, The Weeknd, and Pharrell Williams have all been named as presenters and performers.
The Academy hasn’t yet revealed details about each performance, but The Weeknd’s “Earned It” from Fifty Shades of Grey, Lady Gaga’s “Til It Happens To You” from The Hunting Ground, and Sam Smith’s “Writing’s On The Wall” from Spectre are all nominated for Best Song, and each will presumably perform their song at this year’s ceremony.
“Each of these artists bring a wonderfully distinctive element to the Oscars stage,” producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin said in a statement. “Together they represent the many thrilling ways stories can be shared about the human experience, and we’re honored they will be part of the celebration.”
The Oscars air Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. ET on ABC. See the full list of nominees here.
