Last year's acting winners are all returning to the Oscars stage for this year's show.

The Academy Awards regularly has the previous year's acting winners present the next year's acting Oscars, and it seems likely that the 2017 ceremony will continue this tradition.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Mark Rylance and Alicia Vikander are all set to present at this year's Academy Awards, it was announced Wednesday.

DiCaprio won the best actor Oscar last year for his role in The Revenant after four previous nominations in the category.

Larson won best actress for her role in Room and has already presented equivalent best actor prizes at the Golden Globe and SAG Awards this season. DiCaprio also presented the best actress in a drama prize at this year's Golden Globes.

Rylance won best supporting actor for his role in Bridge of Spies, and Vikander won best supporting actress for her role in The Danish Girl.

This year's acting nominees are notably more diverse than the nominees in those categories for the past two years.

The 89th annual Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, is set to air live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center on Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
