Last year’s four Oscar winners for acting — Cate Blanchett, Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o — will all serve as presenters at this year’s ceremony, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Wednesday.
Blanchett and McConaughey won Oscars last year for their lead roles in “Blue Jasmine” and “Dallas Buyers Club,” respectively. Leto won best supporting actor for “Dallas Buyers Club,” while Nyong’o was the supporting actress winner for “12 Years a Slave.”
The win was the second Academy Award for Blanchett, who won a supporting actress Oscar for the 2004 film “The Aviator.”
They will be presenters during the Academy Awards ceremony on Feb. 22 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Neil Patrick Harris will host.
