Lady Gaga, who missed out on the Best Actress Oscar nomination for her role in “House of Gucci”, will be on the Academy Awards stage as a presenter. Anthony Hopkins will do the same after missing at last year’s Oscar show, when he upset the late Chadwick Boseman for Best Actor. And so did last year’s supporting actor winner Daniel Kaluya.
Kaluya, Mila Kunis, Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Scott, Wesley Snipes and John Trevolta are among the third batch of high-profile presenters to be announced for the 94th Oscars, producer Will Packer and Shayla Kova announced on Friday.
Gaga, Hopkins, Lily James, John Leguzamo, Simu Liu, Rami Malek, Uma Thurman, Kevin Costner, New Catwoman Zoe Kravitz, Rosie Perez, Former Oscar Host Chris Rock, “Minari” Oscar Winner Yuh-Jung Yoon And Ruth (“Black Panther”), the first black person to win an Oscar for costume design, was previously announced as a presenter by the Academy.
More talent will be announced for the March 27 show (ABC, 8 p.m. EDT / 5 PDT) in the coming weeks.
Oscar Night will be a busy night for Gaga, who will also co-host the annual Elton John Oscar viewing party with Billy Porter and Eric McCormack.
Gaga and Bradley Cooper were the stars of the 2019 Oscars when they performed “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born”, for which Gaga won Best Song.
By the morning of the Oscar nomination, she had been a high-profile front-runner for the Best Actress nomination for her role as Patricia Regiani in “House of Gucci.”
