Oscar Presenters to Include Whoopi Goldberg, Benicio Del Toro, Ryan Gosling

Benicio Del Toro, Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Ryan Gosling, Kevin Hart, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Charlize Theron, Jacob Tremblay, The Weeknd and Pharrell Williams will be presenters or performers at the 88th Oscar ceremony, producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin announced Thursday.

Though the announcement didn’t specify, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith and the Weeknd will presumably perform their Oscar-nominated songs (from “The Hunting Ground,” “Spectre” and “Fifty Shades of Grey,” respectively).

“Each of these artists brings a wonderfully distinctive element to the Oscars stage,” said Hill and Hudlin. “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, hosted by Chris Rock, will be held on Feb. 28, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live by the ABC Television Network and in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
