Oscars 2022: Who are the final 9 presenters among 46 celebrities added for Sunday’s ceremony?

Oscars producer Will Packer and his team announced on Wednesday the final slate of presenters for the 94th annual Academy Awards. These nine new names are Josh Brolin, Jacob Elordi, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Momoa, Jill Scott, J.K. Simmons, Serena Williams, Venus Williams and Rachel Zegler. That news brings the total to 46 celebrities taking the stage, although there could also be some surprises. The event airs live on Sunday, March 27, for ABC. First-time hosts are Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes.

Four of five Best Original Song contenders are performing on Sunday’s ceremony. Beyonce will sing “Be Alive” from “King Richard.” Billie Eilish and Finneas will perform “No Time to Die” from the James Bond film. Reba McEntire will sing “Somehow You Do” from “Four Good Days.” Sebastian Yatra will perform “Dos Oruguitas” from “Encanto.” No word on how the Van Morrison tune “Down to Joy” from “Belfast” will be handled, if at all.

The Oscars Twitter account last week mentioned tributes to “The Godfather” 50th anniversary and the James Bond 60th anniversary. Plus, there will be a first-ever live performance of the smash hit “We Need to Talk About Bruno” from “Encanto.

One excellent ongoing tradition is having the previous year’s acting winners return to hand out new Oscars. Among the revealed presenters are Sir Anthony Hopkins, Daniel Kaluuya and Yuh-Jung Youn. That means Best Actress reigning champ Frances McDormand is likely not showing up.
