Lady Gaga, who missed out on a best actress Oscar nomination for her “House of Gucci” role, will be on the Academy Awards stage after all, as a presenter. So will Anthony Hopkins, after missing last year’s Oscars show, when he upset the late Chadwick Boseman for best actor. And so will comedians Tiffany Haddish and Bill Murray.
Haddish, Murray, “Encanto” star Stephanie Beatriz, DJ Khaled, Jennifer Garner, H.E.R., Elliot Page, skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, surfer Kelly Slater and snowboarder Shaun White are among the latest high-profile group of presenters for the 94th Oscars, producers Will Packer and Shayla Cowan announced Monday.
Gaga will be joined by fellow A-listers including Hopkins, Jamie Lee Curtis, Shawn Mendes, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Woody Harrelson, Samuel L. Jackson, Tyler Perry, Tracee Ellis Ross, Daniel Kaluuya, Mila Kunis, Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Scott, Wesley Snipes, John Travolta, Lily James, John Leguizamo, Simu Liu, Rami Malek, Uma Thurman, Kevin Costner, new Catwoman Zoë Kravitz, Rosie Perez and former Oscar host Chris Rock.

In addition, newcomer Halle Bailey (who stars in Disney’s upcoming live-action “The Little Mermaid”), “Minari” Oscar winner Yuh-jung Youn and Ruth E. Carter (“Black Panther”), the first Black person to win an Oscar for costume design, also were previously announced by the academy as presenters.
More talent will be announced in the coming days for Sunday’s show (ABC, 8 p.m. EDT/5 PDT).
Oscar night will be a busy night for Gaga, who will also co-host the annual Elton John Oscar viewing party, along with Billy Porter and Eric McCormack.
Gaga and Bradley Cooper were the stars of the 2019 Oscars when they performed “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born,” for which Gaga won best song.
She was a high profile front-runner for a best actress nomination for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in “House of Gucci” right up until Oscar nominations morning.
