    This is a great idea.

    This list of presenters is so underwhelming, even with the presence of Beatty and Dunaway.

    Just take a look at some of the presenters at the 75th Oscars:

    La Streep
    Barbra Streisand
    Julie Andrews
    Olivia de Havilland
    Kirk Douglas
    Sean Connery

    What do we get this year?
    Beatty & Dunaway
    Jane Fonda
    Jodie Foster
    Rita Moreno
    Eva Marie Saint
    Christopher Walken

    All due respect but this list is a B list if compared to the 75th Oscars or the 70th Oscars…

    I just had a thought: They should really consider performing “Remember Me” during the In Memoriam montage. It’s time efficient and it would really hit the message of the song beautifully. They could turn the stage into the sort of a Day of the Dead altar and the pictures of the people being paid tribute to would appear in an on-screen ofrenda. It’d be perfect.

    Great idea. I like it very much. But won’t it be seen as Academy promoting the song, while it’s among nominess?

    I feel the same. Among the acting nominees this year only Margot Robbie is presenting.

    Anyone has rehearsal photos, seating arrangement where stars is going to sit, and lineup of categories?

    Who will sing for In Memoriam segment?

    They could incorporate songs into the show. And using Remember Me this way won’t single it out. Actually, last year, they used a nominated song to open the show. They could do it again, with This Is Me.

    I suspect they might be keeping some surprises for the show. The list of presenters is surprisingly short at this point and I doubt the Oscars would go on with such meh presenters. After all, even the Globes had Kirk Douglas. Imagine the Globes surpassing the Oscars in terms of prestige presenters…

    Douglas is 101 and was wheelchaired there.  I mean is it really some great moment worth repeating at the Oscars or having something similar at the Oscars?

    I’m not saying it has to be Kirk Douglas but the Oscars’ list of presenters is not really in sync with the fact that this will be the 90th Oscars show. It has to be big, it needs some real legends. I respect a lot of the high-profile nominees but three supporting champs with okay but unremarkable film careers in addition to Foster, Fonda and Beatty/Dunaway just doesn’t sound promising. Sorry.

    They could still have Nicholson, DeNiro, Pacino, Diane Keaton, Streisand, Redford. La Streep and DDL will be there. They could ask them to present. We need some real legends.

    Olivia de Havilland is a couple months older than Douglas is is probably a bigger legend.

    She is but she lives in France and probably wouldn’t even agree to fly to LA and battle jet lag at her age.

    Plus, in an interview done around her 100th birthday, she said she was going blind.

    It would be cool if they could get Dick Van Dyke and have him present with Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. Julie and her most memorable leading men 🙂

    TMZ and the New York Daily News are saying that Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are getting another shot at presenting Best Picture: http://www.tmz.com/2018/03/01/warren-beatty-faye-dunaway-presenting-best-picture-oscars-2018/

    Yawn. Cheap milking of last year’s BP controversy. Deal with it in Kimmel’s monologue and move on with new presenters. Very underwhelming presenters list BTW.

    This is just sad. A ‘Gone with the Wind’ joke? Absolute dinosaurs at the helm.

    According to sources, the writers of the 90th Academy Awards are still tinkering with the lines Beatty and Dunaway will say. During rehearsal, Dunaway was heard saying, “Presenting is better the second time around.” Beatty soon followed with the joke, “The winner is ‘Gone with the Wind.
