On Thursday (Feb. 16), producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd announced the third round of presenters for the 89th Oscars telecast. Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the Oscars will air live Sunday, February 26, on ABC.
Among these 11 new names are two past Oscar winners — Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men”) and Charlize Theron (“Monster”) — as well as a trio of previous nominees: Amy Adams, Felicity Jones and Emma Stone. Stone is tipped to take Best Actress this year for her role in “La La Land,” which is expected to sweep the awards.
Also on this new list are Riz Ahmed, Dwayne Johnson, Janelle Monáe and David Oyelowo. And the academy confirmed that John Cho and Leslie Mann, who hosted last weekend’s Sci-Tech Awards, will introduce that segment on the main ceremony.
The roster of notables who will take to the stage of the Dolby Theater is now up to 25, including all four of last year’s acting winners: leads Leonardo DiCaprio (“The Revenant”) and Brie Larson (“Room”) as well as supporting players Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies”) and Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”).
Also on tap are two other past Oscar winners — Halle Berry (“Monster’s Ball”) and Shirley MacLaine (“Terms of Endearment”) — and past nominees Samuel L. Jackson (“Pulp Fiction”) and Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”).
Among the other presenters are “Fifty Shade” costars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, Marvel superheroes Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson, Emmy winner Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”) and Golden Globe champ Gael Garcia Bernal (“Mozart in the Jungle”).
