Oscar 2018: First Round of Presenters

The first round of presenters for the 2018 Academy Awards show was announced.

Producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd announced that Mahershala Ali, Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, Laura Dern, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig, Tiffany Haddish, Tom Holland, Kumail Nanjiani, Margot Robbie, Emma Stone, and Daniela Vega will be among the stars presenting the statuettes.

Many of the presenters have either won or been nominated for the Academy Awards themselves. Ali, Stone, and Davis all won Oscars in 2017 and Dern was previously nominated for two awards.

In addition to presenting, Gerwig, Nanjiani, and Robbie are awards contenders this year and Vega’s film “A Fantastic Woman” was nominated for best foreign-language film.

“Whether returning to the Oscar stage, or gracing it for the first time, each of these artists bring their own distinguishing and energetic appeal,” said De Luca and Todd. “Their contributions will make for an unforgettable evening.”
