Baron Cohen, Bateman, Carell, Fey and Stiller join ceremony

Oscar is looking for laughs this year, with comedic performers Sacha Baron Cohen, Jason Bateman, Steve Carell, Tina Fey and Ben Stiller joining as presenters for the 82nd Academy Awards. ABC will air Sunday’s ceremony live beginning at 5 p.m.

Baron Cohen and Bateman are making their first appearances on the kudocast. The others are repeat performers — Stiller has presented on five previous shows and Carell on three, while Fey made her debut last year. Show’s producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman announced the presenters, who join co-hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.
