It was announced Tuesday that the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star will be among the presenters at the 2018 ceremony, airing live on CBS this Sunday night. No word yet on if she’ll bring along more of her tiny hats, but we can only hope.

Tony nominees Tina Fey (Mean Girls), John Leguizamo (Latin History for Morons), and Amy Schumer (Meteor Shower) will also take the stage, as well as this year’s lifetime achievement recipients, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Chita Rivera.
That starry group joins a list of previously announced presenters that includes Uzo Aduba, Matt Bomer, Claire Danes, Armie Hammer, Tatiana Maslany, Leslie Odom Jr., Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto,and Andrew Rannells.
