    Let’s just hope Timmy wins the Oscar to show up everyone and the producers for choosing Fonda and Mirren.

    Don’t even bother hoping for T-Chal, it will just make it that harder to deal with him inevitably losing, trust me. Oldman for Lead Actor, Del Toro for Director, Darkest Hour for Makeup & Hairstyling, and Coco for Animated Feature are easily the 4 biggest locks of the entire Oscar year.

    I have no doubt Oldman will win, I just think it would be fabulous on many levels if Timmy won.

    I wish this would happen just cause they are on god level of cockiness. It would be the biggest FU to the academy and they will probably die of embarrassment..

    And isnt PW Coopers the only one who knows the results?? Or do they check now to prevent a mix up like last year?

    I’m not angry about this decision but it just doesn’t seem to make any sense. Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren can present something else, like Screenplay or something. Why doesn’t Stone get to present Best Actor just because Affleck isn’t presenting Actress? Very weird decision.

    This is a head-scratcher – why is the academy not following tradition? Because Casey Affleck chose not to present Best Actress, that shouldn’t impact Emma Stone from presenting Best Actor – keep the tradition alive, no? It just doesn’t make sense.

    So, going forward, the Academy will break tradition if they think (and this year it will and be deserved) a career award is being given out? Things that make you go hmmmm..

    Stone not presenting Best Actor is just offensive. She’s the reigning Best Actress winner. She’s not in an untenable situtation that would case The Academy to buck tradition a la Casey Affleck. Let her present the friggin’ award.

    My guess is Emma Stone’s representatives must have been pretty firm about her getting the biggest category available since she is giving up Actor. She does have some real leverage considering the history of the Oscars. Since Best Picture is taken, my guess is she is doing directing. I think it’s even possible Damien Chazelle presents with her, although it’s pretty rare for them to invite back a non-famous director to do that. It might have been one of her conditions.

    TMZ and the New York Daily News are saying that Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are getting another shot at presenting Best Picture

    If they want to reference last year, what they should do is, bring back, “May I have the envelope, please?”, then, when it is brought out, have whoever is presenting check the envelope to make sure it is the right one.

    Warren and Faye feels too soon in my view. They could have done something relevant.

    They shouldn’t have presented last year in the first place. 50th anniversary of Bonnie & Clyde nomination is this year…

    Emma Stone should fire her representatives right away. It’s an absolute insult that she has been denied to present Actor or Actress. The real insult here is the fact that an absolutely dreadful actress – Jennifer Lawrence – who is not even close to Foster in terms of stature, will present the actress category and Emma wouldn’t be allowed to present it. Why? And this comes from somebody who didn’t even want Emma to win. But she did win. So she should be the one co-presenting with Foster, not Lawrence. Why should Lawrence do it?! These producers are turning the Oscars into a disgusting circus and pay no respect to the artists themselves. And once again, this list of presenters is a B level list at best.

    Guess if everyone didn’t constantly disparage Casey Affleck last year, then he’d be back for the category that he also deserves to present and you’d all still have your traditions in tact. Does Brie Larson BFF Emma Stone even want to present Best Actor to “yet another” abuser of women in Gary Oldman? Oh wait that’s right, we’re not talking about his past. Maybe if Daniel Kaluuya was his next strongest competitor we would be? I mean especially in the “YEAR OF WOMYN”, you would think that Oldman would be the subject of ubiquitous headlines and tweets like Affleck was last year. Anyway, Stone will live and now everyone will know what it’s like to be denied presenting the category that winning earned them the right to present.

    So because Affleck was not presenting and was replaced with Lawrence and Foster (why Lawrence, btw? and also why two presenters?), they decided to mirror it for Actor category and have two different presenters there too? It’s so weird and it screws up all traditions.

    My guess is they paired Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence together because Foster directed and stared alongside Lawrence in The Beaver before Lawrence won her Oscar, so it’s a sort of women helping women sort of thing. That said, Emma Stone deserves to be presenting, I’d be pissed if I were her. Have Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren ever worked together? I can’t think of any reasoning behind that pairing.

    Isn’t it just a one-time winner paired with a two-time winner?

    Since Best Picture is taken, my guess is she is doing directing.

    I read in Variety that “An unlikely presenter will also be handing out the best-director prize”. Idk if it could be Stone.

    That’s probably it, but they should’ve planned it better. There’s some reasoning behind Foster and Lawrence, Fonda and Mirren seems pretty random. They could’ve paired Fonda with Cloris Leachman or Vanessa Redgrave since she’s worked with them, or they could’ve paired Mirren with Maggie Smith (though she probably wouldn’t attend they ceremony even if they invited her). Or even just pair Emma Stone with Fonda or Foster, at least let her present Best Actor in some form.
