UPDATE: The full list of Oscar presenters has been unveiled for this Sunday’s Academy Awards. Check out the list, below.
A couple points of note: Diversity is clearly being made a priority here, with 10 black actors scheduled as presenters. EW writer Mark Harris points out that the show’s biggest get by far is screen icon Sidney Poitier.
Here’s the complete list:
Robert De Niro
Samuel L. Jackson
Michael B. Jordan
EARLIER: As three of the four Actor winners from last year’s Academy Awards were previously announced as Oscar presenters, it seems inevitable that 2013 Best Supporting Actor winner Christoph Waltz would be added to the list of this year’s presenters, rounding out all four.
Waltz’ Oscar win last year, for Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” was his second; he also took home the Best Supporting Actor statuette for QT’s “Inglourious Basterds” in 2009.
EARLIER: Anne Hathaway has been added to the list of presenters for the 2014 Oscars. Hathaway, who won Best Supporting Actress at last year’s Academy Awards for her role in “Les Miserables,” joins previously announced presenters Daniel Day-Lewis and Jennifer Lawrence.
EARLIER: It’s Oscar tradition for the previous year’s winners to present at the current Oscar ceremony. So it’s no surprise that “Lincoln” Best Actor Academy Award recipient Daniel Day-Lewis (who is a three-time winner, for “There Will Be Blood” and “My Left Foot”) will be presenting at the 2014 show, along with the previously announced Jennifer Lawrence (2013 Best Actress winner for “Silver Linings Playbook”).
EARLIER: It’s that time of year again when the list of Oscar presenters begins to be rolled out. First up: Jennifer Lawrence, who won Best Actress at last year’s Academy Awards for “Silver Linings Playbook” and has a nomination this year in the Supporting category for “American Hustle.”
We’ll be updating this post as more presenter names are announced. The Oscars, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, are on March 2.
