Chris Evans, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Charlize Theron, Tessa Thompson and Constance Wu will also take the Oscar stage as presenters.

Variety writes that Oscars producers Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss will announce the names of more presenters in the coming weeks. It is also reported that all five Original Song nominees will be performing at the ceremony.

There has been some acrimony over exclusive rights to some presenters this year. The Screen Actors Guild earlier criticized the film academy for requiring that its potential presenters not appear at previous awards shows.

ABC will broadcast the Oscars live on 24 February. No host has been announced after Kevin Hart stepped down following a backlash over past homophobic tweets by the comedian.
