These Oscars are going to have the most balanced look every in Academy history.
This morning the Academy added 10 more presenters to the March 4th show, and only two of them– Mark Hamill of “Star Wars” and Armie Hammer of “Call Me By Your Name” — are what we’d call regular white guys.
The balance of the presenters is pretty diverse, and thank goodness. They include a legend first of all– Eva Marie Saint, Oscar winner, 90 years old, and still as elegant and outstanding as ever.
Then they’ve got Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Wes Studi, Gina Rodriguez, Gal Gadot, Kelly Marie Tran (from “The Last Jedi”), and the king of all things– like “Hamilton”– Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Add that to the list announced from last week including “Black Panther” star, Chadwick Boseman and “Girls Trip” breakout Tiffany Haddish. This is a show I’d watch even if I didn’t have to!
