The Oscars have announced a new set of presenters for the no host February 9th show.
This group includes Zazie Beetz, Timothée Chalamet, Will Ferrell, Gal Gadot, Mindy Kaling, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anthony Ramos, Mark Ruffalo, Kelly Marie Tran and Kristen Wiig. Two of these are former “Hamilton” cast members: the creator Lin Manuel Miranda, and Anthony Ramos. They’re plugging Miranda’s “In the Heights” starring Ramos, coming in June– and I hear it’s wonderful, btw.
Previously announced Oscars presenters include last year’s winners Mahershala Ali, Olivia Colman, Regina King and Rami Malek.
“We’re excited to welcome these talented artists to help celebrate this year’s movies,” said this year’s producers, Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain. “Each brings their own unique energy and appeal to our global audience.”
Final ballots for members to vote go out on Thursday, two days from now. And yes, the Oscars are two weeks early this year, just as the Grammy Awards were. Next year, we return to the normal schedule! And maybe to real food at the awards shows!
