20 Feb – Just days ago, it was announced that Ben Affleck ("Argo"), Jessica Chastain ("Zero Dark Thirty") and Jennifer Lawrence ("Silver Linings Playbook") have been added to the list of presenters for the upcoming Academy Awards, in addition to their nominations this year.
New additions have just been confirmed, such as Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, Salma Hayek Pinnault, Melissa McCarthy, Liam Neeson and John Travolta. Rudd and Aniston have previously worked together in the movies "Wanderlust" in 2012 and "The Object Of My Affection" in 1998.
Also confirmed to present at the awards ceremony are Jamie Foxx of "Django Unchained" and Michael Douglas, who was last seen in the movie "Haywire".
On a sadder note, it is now also confirmed that the hyped up James Bond reunion at the Oscars is just a mere rumour. The Bond actors will not be sharing the stage together as a special tribute to the long running James Bond franchise, for a wide span of 50 years in films.
All confirmed presenters will join previously announced presenters like Best Actress winners Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, along with the cast from Avengers, last year's acting winners like Jean Dujardin, Christopher Plummer, Octavia Spencer and Meryl Streep, and the stars of the hit Broadway-based film "Chicago".
