Chadwick Boseman, Tiffany Haddish, Greta Gerwig Among First Slate of Oscar Presenters
The Oscars would be nothing without their presenters to make the whole ten thousand-hour experience more bearable, and the Academy has just announced their first slate of presenters for this year’s ceremony. Yes, Tiffany Haddish will be there.
The full list, one of a few the Oscars will release in the coming weeks, is as follows: Mahershala Ali, Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, Laura Dern, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig, Tiffany Haddish, Tom Holland, Kumail Nanjiani, Margot Robbie, Emma Stone and Daniela Vega.
Boseman’s Marshall has a Best Original Song nomination, Gerwig is in the running for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Lady Bird, Nanjiani is nominated as a co-writer for The Big Sick, Vega stars in Chilean foreign-language Oscar nominee A Fantastic Woman, and Haddish should have gotten a nomination for how quickly she became everyone’s favorite person after starring in last year’s Girls Trip.
“Whether returning to the Oscars stage, or gracing it for the first time, each of these artists bring their own distinguishing and energetic appeal,” producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd said in this morning’s statement. “Their contributions will make for an unforgettable evening.” They’ve got that right.
The Oscars will again be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, and will air live Sunday, March 4 on ABC.
