The Oscars are usually a star studded event but this year it’s been guaranteed!

Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Alicia Vikander and Mark Rylance have all signed on to present statues assuring us that there will be an equal amount of star power taking the stage and in the audience. The 89th Academy Awards take place Sunday, February, 26th and are hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

Traditionally, the previous year’s winner will present the Oscar to the person who’s won in that category this year. DiCaprio won his very first golden statue in 2016 for Best Actor in The Revenant so he’ll be presenting in the Best Actor category. Larson won Best Actress for Room. 

Best Supporting Actress went to Vikander for her role in The Danish Girl and Best Supporting Actor went to Rylance for Bridge of Spies.

There are more announcements coming soon regarding additional presenters and live performances. While we don’t have official word from the Academy as to who might be performing, we do know who’s up for Best Original Song… So maybe we can make some educated guesses!

Trolls – “Can’t Stop the Feeling” (Justin Timberlake)

Jim: The James Foley Story – “The Empty Chair” (J. Ralph and Sting)

Moana – “How Far I’ll Go” (Lin-Manuel Miranda, Auli’i Cravalho and Alessia Cara)
