As expected, Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, Lupita N’yongo and Jared Leto will be among the presenters at this year’s Oscar ceremony.

Traditionally the winners of the acting prizes always return the year after.

Oprah Winfrey, Benedict Cumberbatch, Reese Witherspoon, Marion Cotillard, Meryl Streep, Josh Hutcherson, Octavia Spencer, Zoe Saldana and Scarlett Johansson have also been confirmed as presenters.

Producers have also revealed Jennifer Aniston, Sienna Miller, David Oyelowo, Chris Pratt, Chris Rock, and John Travolta wil be presenting awards on the night. Let’s hope John Travolta can read the autocue this time.

Another raft of confirmed presenters include Jessica Chastain, Kevin Hart, Viola Davis, Chris Pine, Ben Affleck, Naomi Watts, Shirley MacLaine and Miles Teller.

You’ll also see Gwyneth Paltrow, Channing Tatum, Nicole Kidman, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Ansel Elgort and Liam Neeson.

This year’s Oscars will also feature lots of music performances. We don’t know much about them yet but do know Jack Black, Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Hudson will take to the stage for a ‘very special sequence’.

Plus, Lady Gaga has also been added to the list of performers.

“We’re creating several musical sequences for the Oscars and we couldn’t be happier that our friend, Jennifer Hudson, will be performing in one of them,” producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement.
