With the 95th Academy Awards just a few days away, it still remains to be seen who exactly will be strolling onstage to offer an acceptance speech thanking family, friends, and maybe even shed some tears. But the list of people who will be presenting those awards is already out in the open—and more names may be on the way.
On March 2, the Academy announced a first round of presenters, including noted thing-doer Ariana DeBose, Riz Ahmed, Emily Blunt, Glenn Close, Jennifer Connelly, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson, Michael B. Jordan, Troy Kotsur, Jonathan Majors, Melissa McCarthy, Janelle Monáe, Deepika Padukone, Questlove, Zoe Saldaña, and Donnie Yen.
Yesterday, the Academy again added twelve new presenters to their list, including Cocaine Bear director Elizabeth Banks and Ariel-in-waiting Halle Bailey. Antonio Banderas, Jessica Chastain, John Cho, Andrew Garfield, Hugh Grant, Danai Guria, Salma Hayek Pinault, Nicole Kidman, Florence Pugh, and Sigourney Weaver rounded out the second slate.
Finally, on Thursday, the Academy announced a third slate of presenters. Halle Berry, Paul Dano, Cara Delevigne, Harrison Ford, Kate Hudson, Mindy Kaling, Eva Longoria, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Andie MacDowell, Elizabeth Olsen, Pedro Pascal, and John Travolta rounded out the lineup, bringing the full list of presenters to 36 people.
The 36 announced presenters join an already-stacked group of performers, including Lenny Kravitz, who will handle the ceremonies In Memoriam segment. Three Best Original Song nominees are also set to perform: Sofia Carson and Diane Warren (nominated for “Applause” from Tell It Like A Woman; David Byrne, Stephanie Hsu and Son Lux (nominated for “This Is A Life” from Everything Everywhere All At Once); and Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava (nominated for “Naatu Naatu” from RRR).
The only nominee who won’t be performing this year is Lady Gaga, nominated alongside BloodPop for their Top Gun: Maverick track “Hold My Hand.” During a Wednesday press conference, Oscars director Glenn Weiss confirmed that Gaga had been asked to perform, but “is in the middle of shooting a movie right now” and was not able to accept the Academy’s invitation.
The 95th Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live from Los Angeles’ Dolby Theater on Sunday, March 12, at 5 P.M. PT/8 P.M. ET. For a full list of nominations, see here.
