Oscars: Viola Davis, Margot Robbie, Mahershala Ali among first group of presenters
Viola Davis, Margot Robbie and Mahershala Ali are among first slate of Oscars presenters.
Producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd announced Friday that Greta Gerwig, Chadwick Boseman, Tiffany Haddish, Tom Holland, Kumail Nanjiani, Emma Stone (who also presented last year), Laura Dern, Daniela Vega and Jennifer Garner will also join in announcing the winners.
“Whether returning to the Oscars stage, or gracing it for the first time, each of these artists bring their own distinguishing and energetic appeal,” said De Luca and Todd in a statement. “Their contributions will make for an unforgettable evening.”
A few of the evening’s presenters are also up for awards. Gerwig’s Lady Bird is up for best picture and best director, along with lead and supporting actress nods for Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf. Both Lady Bird and Nanjiani’s The Big Sick earned nods for best original screenplay. Robbie is nominated for best actress for her leading role in I, Tonya. Vega stars in Oscar-nominated film A Fantastic Woman.
The 90th annual Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live on ABC from the Dolby Theater at Hollywood and Highland Center on March 4 at 8 p.m. ET and 5 p.m. PT.
