Whoopi Goldberg, Kevin Hart Named Among Oscars' Presenters
While the debate about diversity in this year's Oscar nominations rages on, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released a partial list of presenters for next month's ceremony.
The rundown is diverse: Benicio Del Toro, Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Ryan Gosling, Kevin Hart, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Charlize Theron, Jacob Tremblay, The Weeknd and Pharrell Williams.
“Each of these artists brings a wonderfully distinctive element to the Oscars stage,” producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin said Thursday.
“Together they represent the many thrilling ways stories can be shared about the human experience," they said in a statement.
The awards will be handed out Feb. 28 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The ceremony will be broadcast live by ABC.
