Tiffany Haddish, Emma Stone, Kumail Nanjiani among 2018 Oscar presenters
The first batch of stars presenting at next month’s Oscars have been revealed.
Girls Trip breakout Tiffany Haddish — who stole the show when she helped announce the nominees in January — will be among the presenters at the annual telecast, producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd announced on Friday. The list also includes last year’s winners Emma Stone (best actress, for La La Land), Mahershala Ali (supporting actor, for Moonlight), and Viola Davis (supporting actress, for Fences). Casey Affleck, who won best actor last year for his performance in Manchester by the Sea, previously said he will not be attending this year’s ceremony.
Also presenting will be first-time nominees Kumail Nanjiani, Greta Gerwig, and Margot Robbie, as well as Chadwick Boseman, Laura Dern, Jennifer Garner, and A Fantastic Woman star Daniela Vega.
“Whether returning to the Oscars stage or gracing it for the first time, each of these artists brings their own distinguishing and energetic appeal,” De Luca and Todd said in a statement. “Their contributions will make for an unforgettable evening.”
The 90th Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air on March 4 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
