“Minari” star and best-actor nominee Steven Yeun was added Friday to the list of presenters for Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony.

Yeun is nominated for his performance as a father who moves his Korean family to Arkansas to start a farm.

He joins previously announced presenters Riz Ahmed, Viola Davis, Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Don Cheadle, Bryan Cranston, Harrison Ford, Regina King, Marlee Matlin, Rita Moreno, Reese Witherspoon and Zendaya. Also presenting will be Joaquin Phoenix and Renée Zellweger, last year’s best actor and best actress winners, along with supporting-acting winners Brad Pitt and Laura Dern. Bong Joon Ho, who won last year’s Oscars for director, best picture and original screenplay for “Parasite,” will also take part.

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.
