Oscars Line Up More Stars for Sunday Show Including Nicole Kidman, Andrew Garfield, Salma Hayek, Antonio Banderas


The Oscars have lined up more top notch stars for Sunday’s show on ABC at 8pm.

The latest group includes:

Halle Bailey, Antonio Banderas, Elizabeth Banks, Jessica Chastain, John Cho, Andrew Garfield, Hugh Grant, Danai Gurira, Salma Hayek Pinault, Nicole Kidman, Florence Pugh and Sigourney Weaver.

Previously announced were Riz Ahmed, Emily Blunt, Glenn Close, Jennifer Connelly, Ariana DeBose, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Michael B. Jordan, Troy Kotsur, Jonathan Majors, Melissa McCarthy, Janelle Monáe, Deepika Padukone, Questlove, Zoe Saldaña and Donnie Yen.

Rihanna, David Byrne, the people from “RRR,” and Diane Warren with Sofia Carson are all performing their nominated songs. Still to be discerned: who is singing Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand” if she can’t make it. She’s shooting the new “Joker” movie.

Jimmy Kimmel is hosting, and won’t allow any funny business on stage at the Dolby Theater — but the show will be funny!
