The Academy Announces First Round of Oscars Presenters

The Academy announced the first round of presenters for the 91st Annual Academy Awards Oscars ceremony this morning, and the list looks pretty good.

Awkwafina, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans,Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Brie Larson, Jennifer Lopez, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amandla Stenberg, Charlize Theron, Tessa Thompson, Constance Wu, Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic (who will perform during the “In Memoriam” segment) were all announced today as the first round.

There should be, if we go by last year’s numbers, at least two-three more round announcements in the coming weeks leading up to the ceremony.

You can read the nominees list here.

The 91st Annual Academy Awards will take place on February 28th 2019, and will air on ABC.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.


Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence.

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
