John Cho, Leslie Mann to Host Academy's SciTech Awards
John Cho and Leslie Mann will host the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Scientific and Technical Awards Presentation on Feb. 11 at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills.
Cho, who most recently starred in Star Trek Beyond, and Mann, who currently can be seen in The Comedian, will present 18 awards to 34 individual recipients, as well as five organizations, during the science and engineering community’s annual celebration.
"It’s one of our favorite, and most talked about, events each Oscar season, and John and Leslie’s humor and refreshing take on the honorees will be a perfect addition to a night where we celebrate our colleagues’ groundbreaking scientific and technical achievements," Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said Friday in a statement.
