As interest in this Sunday’s (Mar. 7) 82nd Academy Awards heats up, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have announced more presenters for the big show. Headlining the star-filled group is none other than former Oscar winners Barbra Streisand, Kathy Bates and Charlize Theron, two-time nominees Robert Downey, Jr. and John Travolta and singular honorees Queen Latifah and Samuel L. “I never met an awards show I couldn’t attend” Jackson.
One of the big questions remaining about Sunday’s telecast is who will give away the Oscar for Best Picture. This announcement may have provided some clues. Streisand rarely attends the Oscars anymore and would be the sort of industry icon to present the Best Picture award. Downey, Jr.’s status as one of the biggest stars in the world would also put him on the short list for the night’s final reveal.
However, it’s incredibly rare that the Academy divulges who will present the Best Picture award beforehand. Still, don’t be surprised if either star doesn’t appear until the 11 PM ET hour during the show.
