Oscars: Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson Added to List of Presenters
Additional stars set to take the stage include Chris Evans, Shirley MacLaine, Kate McKinnon, Hailee Steinfeld and 'Fifty Shades' leads Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson are just some of the stars set to take the stage at the 89th annual Oscars later this month.
Others added to the list of presenters include Chris Evans, Gael Garcia Bernal, Shirley MacLaine, Kate McKinnon, Hailee Steinfeld and Fifty Shades' Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
Last week, the Motion Picture Academy announced that last year's acting winners would present at this year's awards ceremony, suggesting they would continue the tradition of having the previous year's winner present the Oscar to the next trophy recipient.
Berry won the best actress Oscar for her role in Monster's Ball while Jackson earned a best supporting actor nomination for his role in Pulp Fiction. MacLaine won a best actress Oscar for her role in Terms of Endearment and was nominated for her leading roles in The Turning Point, Irma La Douce, The Apartment and Some Came Running. Steinfeld was nominated for best supporting actress for her role in True Grit.
Evans and Johansson have appeared together in various Marvel films and will co-star again in Avengers: Infinity War.
"These actors are why we love to go to the movies," producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd said in a statement announcing the latest group of presenters. "From blockbusters to art house films, these artists deliver every time and we’re thrilled to welcome them to the 89th Oscars stage."
The 89th annual Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center on Feb. 26 at 7 p.m.
