Oscars Add Sports Stars Shaun White, Kelly Slater, Tony Hawk to Eclectic Presenters List


The Oscars are getting more and more eclectic. They’ve added Shaun White, Kelly Slater, and Tony Hawk to the list of presenters. Also DJ Khaled.

This is going to be an interesting show, that’s for sure. A lot of the presenters have nothing to do with movies. But producer Will Packer is obviously trying to broaden the audience.

Also new to the list are Bill Murray, Tiffany Haddish, singer HER, and Jennifer Garner.

The Oscars are this Sunday on ABC.
