The Oscars are shaping up for April 25th on ABC. Producers have announced their first group of presenters, all big names, and very multi cultural.
More names are coming, of course. I don’t know why, but I was hoping for Awkwafina. Also, now that Rosie Perez has pointed out that she’s never been asked to do anything, the one time Oscar nominee– whom we all adore– should be included, no?
Anyway, here’s the first group:
Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Bong Joon Ho, Don Cheadle, Bryan Cranston, Laura Dern, Harrison Ford, Regina King, Marlee Matlin, Rita Moreno, Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Renée Zellweger and Zendaya.
“In keeping with our awards-show-as-a-movie approach, we’ve assembled a truly stellar cast of stars,” said producers Jesse Collins, Stacy Sher and Steven Soderbergh. “There’s so much wattage here, sunglasses may be required.”
