“We are very excited that the Hollywood community will be turning out in force for Sunday’s Oscar ceremony,” said Zadan and Meron. “We sought to include a tremendous diversity of stars to represent not only this year’s nominees, but the legacy of the motion picture business as well.”

  1. Kim Novak? Hooray! But why can’t we have more stars of the Golden Age? Can you imagine the ovations for the likes of James Garner, Doris Day, Eva Marie Saint, Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, Maureen O’Hara, Christopher Lee, Lauren Bacall, George Kennedy, June Lockhart, Gloria deHaven, Angela Lansbury, Jerry Lewis, Cloris Leachman, Gina Lollobrigida, Sophia Loren, Estelle Parsons, Martin Landau, Jane Powell, Ruby Dee, Julie Christie, Omar Sharif, Roger Moore, Raquel Welch, Ellen Burstyn, Russ Tamblyn, Max von Sydow, Tippi Hedren, Joanne Woodward, Robert Duvall. Many of these are Oscar winners or nominees. (Poitier is a nice touch but we know the real reason he was asked…no offense intended.

    1. Nice list. It would have been nice to see a few of those stars. As soon as Hollywood begins appreciating their contributions and honoring their legacy, maybe we’ll see a few of them on stage.

      1. The only presenters should be Oscar winners. Keep it exclusive. None of this Jessica Biel as-a-favor-to-Justin mercy gig crap.

    2. Amen to your statement on including some of the surviving greats of cinema. I have been the editor of Maureen O’Hara’s official website “Maureen O’Hara Magazine” for the past 20 years and also her archivist. When I created an extension page on Facebook it became a huge success. Maureen O’Hara is still so adored and is a very gracious and lovely lady at age 93. She is also an incredible human being. She should have been honored by the Academy years ago, but she is still the winner for generations to come. When interviewed by Johnny Carson on his show in 1991 (promotion for “Only the Lonely” with John Candy) and Johnny asked her about all of her classic films, she laughed and said in essence….”Years from now, long after into the box, you’ll still be seeing Maureen O’Hara every Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day!

  2. it’s basically the same faces every year. maybe AMPAS should try something different once in a while. how about…”presenting with Brad Pitt is Joe Jones who just finished walking the boards with his incredible interpretation of Willie Loman at the north hollywood playhouse and is currently preparing for the role of the slasher in an upcoming low budget internet production”. intriguing perhaps?

  3. So Day-Lewis presents actress, Jenn Law actor, and Ford or De Niro only ones with stature for best pic. I don’t see a Director’s name, they should ask Afleck to make up for last year’s snub.

    1. I think Mr. Poitier would certainly be considered as having enough stature to give out Best Picture. He was my first guess…

    2. You might want to google Sidney Poitier to understand he could do both Director or Best Picture with ‘stature’ to spare

    3. Kim Novak is the one that jumped out at me. She hasn’t acted in anything since 1991 according to IMDb, yet her name still commands respect.

  4. Gary, you do not believe Sidney Poitier has the requisite “stature” to present the Oscar for Best Picture?

  5. Well, wait, cause each year the list will get longer. Maybe the Board will decide that the Best Picture nominees should number 20–all the more chance to get a higher rating!Let’s add an animation category! Let’s add to the number of Best pics! As it is, the “winner” might have gotten 15% of the vote. How is that for consensus?

    When the “academy” decides to concentrate on standards and quality and issues of an “academy” rather than on getting a slightly higher viewership on TV, it will regain some of the respect it had started to earn.

  6. Oscar has done it again:
    Turns out that the year when there is a STRONG chance for two Mexicans (Chivo and his pal Poncho) to take home the Oscar they felt that 1 out 46 presenters was enough to represent Latinos; the only problem is that Miss Cruz is Hispanic, not Latina. And there is a difference in that, ask any Brazilian.
    I feel confident that the reason for not inviting previous Latino Oscar nominees like Edward James Olmos, Andy García, Benicio Del Toro, Demian Bichir, Catalina Sandino and Salma Hayek or rising stars like Michael Peña and Diego Luna or Latina diva / megastar J Lo, is that they are working so hard they had to decline the invitation. You know, those Latinos are always in such high demand in Hollywoodland.
    Looking at the list again, I think maybe I should consider Mr. De Niro and Mr. Travolta as representatives of Latinos; I mean, their ancestors came from a Romance-language country after all. Lemme dream, OK?

    1. Penelope Cruz is Spanish. Not Hispanic. That’s like referring to a Manhattanite as a Long Islander for heaven’s sake.

      1. She is Spanish, therefore Hispanic.

        Something from Webster’s for you, aleya:

        HISPANIC: of or relating to the people, speech, or culture of Spain or of Spain and Portugal
        2
        : of, relating to, or being a person of Latin American descent living in the United States; especially : one of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin

        I am Mexican, therefore I am both Hispanic and Latino.

        But to come back to my point, Ms. Cruz is technically Hispanic but never Latino. That would be like saying Chiwetel Ejiofor is an American of African descent. A little more to the point than your Manhattanite comment, I think.

  7. Boring people who make boring films. You could interchange Cooper, the guy who always takes his shirt off, Gosling, Reynolds & Aflac and no one would notice. I can never distinguish between Damon & Marky Mark. Most actresses are the same. And on top of that we always have to hear their political screeds.

  8. Benedict Camberbatch!!! It will be best show! So I’ll waiting now, when he takes his own Oscar! (Sorry, for my English!)

  9. The presenters are chosen according to “tune-in-ability” for the year’s films, and nothing more. All about ratings and the benjamins. Sad, really. I’d love to see some older stars of part eras as well.
