News // 91st ACADEMY AWARDS PRESENTERS ANNOUNCED, ROUND ONE

Oscar winners Whoopi Goldberg and Brie Larson are among the first group of presenters announced.



Donna Gigliotti, producer of the upcoming 91st Academy Awards, and co-priducer and director, Glenn Weiss, announced the first round of presenters set for the upcoming Oscar ceremony.


Embroiled in an awards season like no other, the upcoming 91st Oscars are set to be one of the more interesting ceremonies in recent memory. There will not be a host, so the slate of presenters is bound to be expected to serve the show in a host-like fashion.


"The Oscar nominees have generated tremendous worldwide attention through their captivating stories, achievements and performances," said Gigliotti and Weiss. "We want to give the public an opportunity to once again experience the moments that have moved us all. It is a celebration of our universal love of movies."


This announcement of presenters comes on the heels of an announcement of the performers of all five Best Song nominees, including Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, who will sing "Shallow" from A Star is Born.


The first round of presenters announced include: Awkwafina, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Brie Larson, Jennifer Lopez, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amandla Stenberg, Charlize Theron, Tessa Thompson, and Constance Wu.


Additionally, it was announced Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic will perform during the "In Memoriam" segment.


The 91st Academy Awards are Sunday, February 24, 2019.
