The Oscars are gearing up for this Sunday’s show with big names participating in the annual event.
Even before “Creed III” had its gigantic opening weekend, producers signed up star Jonathan Majors as a presenter. They’ve also got that film’s director and star Michael B. Jordan.
Others include Riz Ahmed, Emily Blunt, Glenn Close, Jennifer Connelly, Ariana DeBose, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Troy Kotsur, Melissa McCarthy, Janelle Monáe, Deepika Padukone, Questlove, Zoe Saldaña and Donnie Yen.]
The big news this morning is that rock star Lenny Kravitz will perform with the In Memoriam segment. And no, he won’t be singing “It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over.” Kravitz is a Hollywood kid– his father was an NBC News producer, his mother was “Jeffersons” star Roxie Roker, his daughter is movie star and director Zoe Kravitz. So this will be cool. Lenny has also appeared in many movies including “The Butler.”
More announcements coming…like Lady Gaga performing along with Rihanna, David Byrne, and Diane Warren with Sofia Carson…
