Michael B. Jordan, Helen Mirren, Elsie Fisher Among Oscar Presenters

UPDATED: Michael B. Jordan, Helen Mirren, and Elsie Fisher have been announced as presenters at the Academy Awards, along with Danai Gurira, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Keaton, John Mulaney, Tyler Perry, Pharrell Williams, Krysten Ritter, Paul Rudd, and Michelle Yeoh.

They will join previously announced list that includes Chris Evans, Brie Larson, Awkwafina, Daniel Craig, Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Jennifer Lopez, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amandla Stenberg, Charlize Theron, Tessa Thompson, and Constance Wu.

The Academy has slowly rolled out the names of the star-studded list of presenters. The lineup of celebrities who will also grace the Oscars stage on Sunday night consists of Javier Bardem, Angela Bassett, Chadwick Boseman, Emilia Clarke, Laura Dern, Samuel L. Jackson, Stephan James, Keegan-Michael Key, KiKi Layne, James McAvoy, Melissa McCarthy, Jason Momoa, and Sarah Paulson.

Oscar producers Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss will continue to reveal presenters in the coming weeks. The Academy also said conductor Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic will perform during the “In Memoriam” segment.

Variety recently reported that the show will feature musical performances of the five original-song nominees, after backlash to the news that only two recognized songs would be performed. The Academy also tweeted that “The Place Where Lost Things Go” from “Mary Poppins Returns” would be “performed by a surprise special guest,” which could indicate that Emily Blunt, who sang it in the film, will make a surprise appearance.

“From blockbuster hits to intimate tales of the human spirit, the movies we celebrate at the Oscars connect us in a way that is both moving and powerful,” said ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke. “Donna and Glenn will deliver a tribute worthy of the talent that will present and receive Oscar gold, and I’m so proud that ABC is home to this monumental night.”

The 91st Oscars will be held on Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, and will be televised live on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
