    I was just thinking about Kim Novak’s appearance at the Oscars a few years back. She was introduced with basically no fanfare which I think resulted in no standing ovation (which she should have received). She had not been to the Oscars in a very long time and this was her big return. She definitely deserved better treatment! The press coverage of her appearance, of course, made things worse, and I don’t imagine she’d ever be willing to present again. I always like to see these “Old Hollywood” presenters (Sidney Poitier also presented the same year as Ms. Novak). I hope we get to see a couple of them at this year’s Oscars….with introductions & a standing ovation that they deserve! There aren’t too many left!

    Indeed, that was a real shame and especially pathetic that McConaughey had to all but explain who she was. I would donate to the Academy if they recruited Faye Dunaway to present.

    Gena Rowlands was there last year (she waved when her Honorary Oscar was announced). She should have presented……also Humanitarian Award winner Debbie Reynolds (if her health would have permitted). Faye Dunaway would be an excellent choice as a presenter……also Ellen Burstyn, Warren Beatty, and others. I was glad they included Shirley MacLaine last year.

    I’d like it if they reunited past costars. Like Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty or other landmark film co-stars. Or Streisand and Robert Redford or Dustin Hoffman and Katharine Ross etc.

    And to be presenting the Animation awards as well, so early in the ceremony? She should have been presenting something more major, like Director or Screenplay. Cinematography would’ve been nice too.

    They did that in the past, in the 1980s. Audrey Hepburn & Gregory Peck, Elizabeth Taylor & Paul Newman or Anne Bancroft & Dustin Hoffman, just of the top of my head. It would really add a glamour and class. Dunaway/Beatty and Ross/Hoffman seem great. I wouldn’t mind Marsha Mason & Richard Dreyfuss, Liza Minnelli & Joel Grey or Cher & Nicolas Cage, for example.

    I wouldn’t count on Olivia de Havilland anymore but you reminded me that it’s the highest time for another Oscar family album. Loren, Andrews and Plummer sound really good.

    ^as if even 1/10 of the audience would know who Glenda Jackson is, sadly.

    Lol, Glenda Jackson wouldn’t even turn up any of the times she was nominated. I think I remember reading that she found the whole thing horrendous and ridiculous. She has now returned to acting after retiring from politics, but I doubt she’ll have much to do with Hollywood, least of all presenting at awards ceremonies.

    Couldn’t agree more. I’m irritated every year when we have to sit through modern dullards presenting awards when there are proper legend being ignored.

    As La La Land is a shoo in I think a combo of Leslie Caron, Julie Andrews + Shirley MacLaine presenting Best Picture would be a nice touch.

    Certainly! I also think Catherine Deneuve and Sean Connery would be cool.

    I’d hope they know who she is.
