Hopefully there will be some “older” presenters……would be so great to see Kim Novak there again (and treated as she should be). I still remember how she was so quickly introduced. They could have done a better job. I remember the great introductions a couple of years ago for Eva Marie Saint & Rita Moreno…..a film clip, the introduction and them walking out as music played.January 21, 2020 at 4:15 pm #1203297579
I kinda hope they get Ellen Burstyn to present Best Picture.January 22, 2020 at 3:54 am #1203298323
Ellen Burstyn would be a great presenter! I don’t think she’s ever presented before – at least I can’t remember it. I know she co-hosted once with a few others.
Ryan O’Neal & Ali MacGraw together would also be a good choice….50 years since Love Story. Same for Donald Sutherland & Elliot Gould (50 years since MASH).January 22, 2020 at 7:46 am #1203298566
I agree that Ellen Burstyn would be an excellent choice to present at this year’s telecast. I remember that she introduced the “Cold Mountain ” clip at the Golden Globes back in 04. Maybe she can introduce one of the best picture clips. I just hope that the producers invite former legendary Oscar winners like Jessica Lange, Sissy Spacek, Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones to present. I’m tired of seeing the same group of presenters year after year!January 22, 2020 at 8:49 am #1203298795
I would love for Olivia De Havilland to present Best Picture! I think she’s 104 years old? I believe she’s the oldest living Oscar winner!January 22, 2020 at 8:26 pm #1203299720
According to reports that came out around her 100th birthday a few years ago, her eyesight had deteriorated pretty badly. So health wise, she’s in no state to present Best Picture, let alone fly all the way to Los Angeles from France. However, if you want a true legend who is up there in years, but seems to be in relatively good health, I recommend Angela Lansbury. She’s never presented Best Picture at the Oscars, and she’s as legendary as they get.January 22, 2020 at 11:02 pm #1203299826
Another option I’d like to see is Julie Andrews.January 23, 2020 at 2:30 am #1203299891
They should have Ricky Gervais present Best Picture. That would be awesome! 😂January 23, 2020 at 5:10 am #1203299987
What would be wild is if actors from previous BP noms/winners that inspired the current list present the movie reel. Lol. Like if Kramer v Kramer actors present the Marriage Story reel, the Dunkirk actors present 1917, so on so forth…
And then at the end, the cast of Parasite presents theirs and say something like, “And now for a nominee like no other…”
Lol. Just imagine it.
I just love movies. And awards.January 23, 2020 at 7:56 am #1203300125
Would be cool to have Gene Hackman present. He turns 90 in two weeks.January 23, 2020 at 8:35 am #1203300168
Hackman’s stayed out of the spotlight since he retired, so I think the chances of him presenting are zero.
However, I have one suggestion for someone even older than Gene Hackman who still doesn’t mind appearing at awards shows to present Best Picture: Angela Lansbury. She’s a bona fide legend, and even at 94, she’s still working. She’s never presented Best Picture before, and even better, she’s not directly involved with any of the nominees, which is always how the Best Picture presenter should be.January 23, 2020 at 12:57 pm #1203300675
All of the nominated songs will be performed:January 23, 2020 at 2:04 pm #1203300759
For the first time ever, a female conductor will play a key role in the Oscar ceremony. Irish-born composer-conductor Eímear Noone will conduct excerpts from the five nominated scores. She is the first female to lead the orchestra in the history of the televised awards, the Academy said. Oscar musical director Rickey Minor is expected to conduct the rest of the show, as he did during his initial Oscar gig last year. “[How] generous he is, to hand over this incredibly poignant moment, as these [composers] are my heroes and she-roes, who will be sitting in the audience, whose music I get to interpret,” Noone adds.
