Best actress nominees Reese Witherspoon and Marion Cotillard will also take the stage.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Oprah Winfrey are set to present at this year's Oscars, ensuring both will be able to take the stage even if they fail to win the awards for which they're nominated. Cumberbatch is up for best actor for his role in The Imitation Game, while Winfrey, who was memorably snubbed for an acting nom last year for her role in Lee Daniels' The Butler, has another chance at Oscar gold as one of the producers of Selma.

Other current nominees set to take the stage as presenters include best supporting actress nominee Meryl Streep, vying for her fourth Oscar for her role in Into the Woods, and best actress nominees Reese Witherspoon (Wild) and Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night).



Previously announced presenters
include last year's acting winners Lupita Nyong'o, Cate Blanchett, Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey.

In addition, Jack Black, Common, John Legend, Rita Ora, Tim McGraw and Adam Levine are set to perform.

The 2015 Oscars, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will take place at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday, Feb. 22. The show will air live on ABC starting at 7 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT.
