The 2015 Oscars are fast approaching, and as film fans hedge their bets for which A-listers will take home the evening’s top honours on Sunday (Feb. 22), attention has also turned to this year’s star-studded presenters. FromNicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow to nominee Channing Tatum, the stage at the Dolby Theatre will host a who’s who of Hollywood talent.
In the walkup to the big show, presenters have been steadily revealed, with recent additions including Idris Elba, SNL 40th Anniversary performer Eddie Murphy, Liam Neeson and The Fault in Our Stars actor Ansel Elgort, who took to Twitter to share his amazement.
"Feeling so lucky today. What did I do to deserve this? Last year I was watching the Oscars on TV this year I’ll be on stage presenting... Wow," he wrote.
Gwyneth Paltrow also used the social media platform to reveal that she would be doling out an award on Hollywood’s biggest night.
"Dear @TheAcademy I humbly accept your offer to present at this year’s #Oscars #WhereMySpanxat", she shared with her two million followers.
Other presenters confirmed to be taking part are Jason Bateman, Chris Evans, Jennifer Lopez and Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson. Chloe Grace Moretz will take to the stage just weeks after celebrating her 18th birthday, while Margot Robbie will return to present an award one year after making her Oscars debut.
The Help actress Viola Davis said she was "thrilled" to be presenting at the Oscars, andScandal star Kerry Washington revealed that she was "very excited" to be handing out one of the iconic Oscars statuettes.
Jennifer Aniston will also take to the Oscars stage to present an award, despite missing out on a Best Actress nomination for her performance in Cake. The 46-year-old isn’t the only snubbed star helping to hand out awards on the night. Selma actor David Oyelowo, who like Jennifer, was expected to receive an Oscar nomination – will also be taking part in the highly anticipated ceremony.
