    the oscars should do ALL OSCAR WINNERS PRESENTER again this year for acting category, just like what they did in 2008.

    and all the winners last year are either first time winners or returning winners in their respective category, which will perfectly fit if they do this again.
    FYC for presenter (note: only winners in one acting category, excluding winners in both leading and supporting category):

    BEST ACTOR:
    – daniel day lewis (1989, 2007, 2012)

    – dustin hoffman (1979, 1988)

    – tom hanks (1993, 1994)

    – sidney poitier (1963)

    – russel crowe (2000)

    BEST ACTRESS:

    – jennifer lawrence (2012)

    – jane fonda (1971,1978)
    – olivia de havilland (1946,1949)

    – charlize theron (2003)

    – holly hunter (1993)

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR:
    – christoph waltz (2009, 2012)

    – michael caine (1986, 1999)

    – louis gosset, jr. (1982)
    – joe pesci (1990)

    – george clooney (2005)

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS:

    – anne hathaway (2012)

    – dianne weist (1986, 1994)

    – mo’nique (2009)
    – vanessa redgrave (1977)

    – patty duke (1962)

    who do you think should present???

    But that was terrible. Didn’t work at all.

    Nice to see all the faces but having them all gush platitudes was toe curling.

    well if you think that didn’t work, then tell us what will work? or at least who should be the presenters/performers this year?

    I don’t like the idea either.
    It probably worked (or let’s say it was warmly received in 2008) because there was the suspense who would be in these groups of past winners, but they wasted so much time to actually have previous winners suffer through tributes that mostly felt fake and forced, not to mention that they didn’t really mean much most of the time. Because Sophia telling us that Meryl’s name means quality or Marion praising Winslet’s intensity – well, how did it make the experience more interesting?! I would have liked to see longer clips instead.

    I think that the best way to do acting categories is the old-fashioned way of showing clips and I prefer the longer clips (the way they did supporting actor and supporting actress in 2009 was good).

    For presenters, 2013:

    let’s go to 2003, 1993, 1983, 1973, 1963, 1953, 1943, 1933
    Maybe they could get Nicholson and Shirley MacLaine to present together?
    Maybe they could ask the cast of The Lord of the Rings to present something they’re so closely associated with – visual effects?!
    Get the cast of The Exorcist – Burstyn and Max von Sydow – to appear together.
    In the end it would be another totally boring line-up of presenters.
    I’m still furious they didn’t go for The Godfather cast members presenting picture last year.

    I hate how they spend like 8 minutes having presenters talk about the leading roles but the supporting categories are over and done with in a few minutes

    I wish the Oscar telecast saw more reunions of casts from great movies.  Every year I always feel like they miss great opportunities.  They could’ve reunited the stars of Silence of the Lambs, Clint and Morgan Freeman for Unforgiven. I for one loved the Oscar Family Album reunions that brought back acting winners.  I guess it all comes down to who the producers are.  Last year it was more important to the producers to bring back the Chicago cast from only 10 years earlier, which really didn’t excite anyone and was more an example of look who got plastic surgery.  Then, of course, they overstuffed the telecast with fluff, Skyfall coming after the James Bond tribute.  When you have producers advancing their own agendas and not stepping back to realize what has worked and what hasn’t, you will continually run into problems. I think the show really needs someone who loves the Oscars and wants to celebrate film and history–not musicals, not William Shatner, not pandering to a younger demographic that will never watch.  Bring back prestige, celebrate the year’s best movies (last year people like Behn Zeitlin should have been mentioned for what he pulled off, as well as a special acknowledgment to Kathryn Bigelow and Ben Affleck for not being nominated). Bring back the few legends we have still alive.  The suggestion of Shirley MacLaine and Jack Nicholson is great (1983)–and what an insult it was for Jack Nicholson to share the stage with Michelle Obama, who really had no place at the Oscars presenting the top award for film.  I’d love to see a few of the Lord of the Rings actors.  A legend to present Best Picture?  Someone different from other years, please.

    Let Steve Martin co-present Best Actor award with Jennifer
    Lawrence and Angela Lansbury co-present Best Actress award with Daniel Day
    Lewis. Piero Tosi can announced Best Costume Design winner and Angelina Jolie
    can present Best Documentary Feature and Short.

    Better yet, why not to announce this year’s
    Governors Awards winners right before Best Picture category and let all four
    present the final category of the evening.

    I really like your idea Will, but just for fun, I’m going to speculate presenters if they do a past-winner circle again (note: comment on the presenters and why they are presenting to the nominees I selected, not the actual nominees)

    BEST ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE
    Jack Nicholson
    presents to Bruce Dern
    (Both were nominated for highly acclaimed Alexander Payne films in their elderly periods. Both were set in Nebraska, and both were married to June Squibb in their respective films. Added to that, Jack Nicholson and Bruce Dern are good friends in real life)
    Dustin Hoffman presents to Tom Hanks
    (Both won Best Actor twice – the first for a passionate courtroom drama and the other for a heartwarming story where they played a mentally challenged but inspiring person)
    Denzel Washington presents to Chiwetel Ejiofor
    (Washington won for his performance in a slavery-era Civil War drama. They are both incredibly highly acclaimed actors that have very similar talents)
    Robert De Niro presents to Leonardo DiCaprio 
    (Both were known before Scorsese cast them, but both also got their biggest breaks with him. It is also a trend – everytime Scorsese casts one of his recurring players – De Niro and Pesci for example – they receive a nomination but do not win. The second time they are nominated, both win. So perhaps we are underestimating DiCaprio’s chances here)
    Daniel Day-Lewis presents to Matthew McConaughey 
    (I’m not too sure why DDL should present to McConaughey, but he needs to be at the ceremony for some reason. I think this is the best fit for him. If Hanks is not nominated for CP, then he will present to MM)

    WINNER ANNOUNCED BY OLDEST WINNER OF THIS CATEGORY: Sidney Poitier 

    BEST ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
    Helen Mirren presents to Judi Dench 
    (This one is obvious – both are of course dames. Dench is nominated for a Frears film, while Mirren won for a Frears film. Both are considered the finest living British actresses and the queens of British cinema)
    Nicole Kidman presents to Emma Thompson
    (Kidman won for playing a legendary female author who pushed the boundaries of literature, which is essentially the character Thompson is playing in SMB. Both had to deal with hardships in their lives, and came out as legends at the end of it)
    Diane Keaton presents to Cate Blanchett
    (Both had career-defining performances by Woody Allen, where instead of being female caricatures, they are incredibly powerful, independent women. As Blue Jasmine is being called Allen’s best film since Annie Hall, it only seems fitting for Annie Hall to present the award to Blanchett)
    Jessica Lange presents to Meryl Streep 
    (As I mentioned above, if Dench and Mirren are the queens of British cinema, then it goes without saying that Meryl Streep and Jessica Lange are the queens of American cinema. Both won Supporting and then won Lead, which is a feat not very many achieve)
    Jodie Foster presents to Sandra Bullock
    (Both play incredibly powerful female people in jobs stereotypical to men. They show that they are as powerful as men, and can face adversity just as well. Both have huge villains to fight – for Foster it was Hannibal Lecter. For Bullock, it is the entire outer space) 

    AWARD PRESENTED BY THE OLDEST LIVING WINNER IN THE CATEGORY: Olivia De Havilland

    well if you think that didn’t work, then tell us what will work? or at least who should be the presenters/performers this year?  

    What works is what’s always worked. Last years winner presents to this year. It’s simple and effective.

    Other than that I pretty much agree with all that KT said. At the Oscars you want to see LEGENDS!!! There is nothing special or surprising about seeing Channing Tatum on the screen. Open any gossip mag or turn on your computer and you can see that.

    There is no prestige in wheeling out the same people who are at the Teen Choice Awards.

    When Olivia De Havilland sweeps onto the stage that’s a moment. Emma Green not so much.

    And for the love of god can we stop with Jack giving out Best Picture. He’s done it more times in the last 20 years than every woman put together.

    23 previous winners + DiCaprio? Because they’ve run out ways to mess with his head?

    As mentioned is past similar threads, most actors want to be anywhere but at the Dolby Theater Oscar night. It’s a pain in the ass event for most of them, and presenting is regarded as something to avoid at all costs by most big names.
