Oscars Plenty to go Around
Shout

In a slight change in procedure, Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron  on Monday morning announced the slate of presenters at Sunday’s Oscars. 

The roster includes representatives of Hollywood from the 1950s and 1960s (Kim Novak, Sidney Poitier) through performers who appeared on the map in the past few years (Michael B. Jordan, Jason Sudeikis) and previous Oscar winners (Penelope Cruz, Robert De Niro, Whoopi Goldberg, Charlize Theron).

The presenters announced Monday: Amy Adams, Kristen Bell, Jessica Biel, Jim Carrey, Glenn Close, Bradley Cooper, Penélope Cruz, Benedict Cumberbatch, Viola Davis, Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Sally Field, Harrison Ford, Jamie Foxx, Andrew Garfield, Jennifer Garner, Whoopi Goldberg, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Goldie Hawn, Chris Hemsworth, Kate Hudson, Samuel L. Jackson, Angelina Jolie, Michael B. Jordan, Anna Kendrick, Matthew McConaughey, Ewan McGregor, Bill Murray, Kim Novak, Tyler Perry, Brad Pitt, Sidney Poitier, Gabourey Sidibe, Will Smith, Kevin Spacey, Jason Sudeikis, Channing Tatum, Charlize Theron, John Travolta, Kerry Washington, Emma Watson and Naomi Watts.

They join the previously  announced quartet of Daniel Day-Lewis, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence  and Christoph Waltz, who won in the four acting categories last year.

In previous years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences would unveil one or two presenters’ names each day in the buildup to the ceremony.

“We are very excited that the Hollywood community will be turning out in force for Sunday’s Oscar ceremony,” said Zadan and Meron. “We sought to include a tremendous diversity of stars to represent not only this year’s nominees, but the legacy of the motion picture business as well.”
