The first group of presenters for the upcoming 93rd Oscars were announced Monday, including all of last year’s top Academy Award winners.
Joaquin Phoenix and Renée Zellweger, last year’s best actor and best actress winners, along with supporting-acting winners Brad Pitt and Laura Dern, will take part in the April 25 ceremony. Last year’s director, best picture and original screenplay winner, Bong Joon Ho (“Parasite”), will also return to the telecast.
Other members of what’s being called the “ensemble cast” of the show are Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Don Cheadle, Bryan Cranston, Harrison Ford, Regina King, Marlee Matlin, Rita Moreno, Reese Witherspoon and Zendaya.
Additional presenters will be announced as the show gets closer.
Due to COVID-19, the Oscar ceremony will originate from multiple venues, primarily from Union Station north of downtown Los Angeles, but also from its traditional home at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Some attendees are expected to make their appearances from international locations.
