The 2022 Oscars are just around the corner, and fans are excited to watch the ceremony and find out which of the films from 2021 will receive the honor of the prestigious award. The ceremony is set to hold on March 27th at the Hollywood and Highland Center.
The first set of celebrity award presenters for the ceremony has finally been released, and fans are hyped about the opportunity that their favorite stars have been given. The lineup includes Zoë Kravitz, Lady Gaga, Chris Rock, and others. Keep reading to find out more about the presenters.
The Academy Unveiled The First Six Celebrity Presenters
The six stars confirmed to present awards to their fellow actors in the upcoming show include Zoë Kravitz, Lady Gaga, Kevin Costner, Rosie Perez, Chris Rock, and Yuh-Jung Youn. While fans are excited to see them all, the most notable on the list may be Gaga.
Fans were shocked when the 35-year-old musician and actress failed to be nominated for her outstanding role in the 2021 blockbuster “House Of Gucci.” The nomination would’ve been her second, her first being for “A Star Is Born.”
The other stars have also made fans proud of their unique ways and deserve their spot on the list. The 67-year-old two-time Academy Awards winner, Costner recently told fans about his new role as a narrator for a four-part show “Yellowstone: One-Fifty.”
Kravitz also got fans pumped with her performance as Catwoman in “The Batman” alongside the Batman actor, Robert Pattinson. Perez was previously nominated for an Oscar with “Fearless,” and the 2021 Best Supporting Actress Oscar-winner, Yuh-Jung Youn (“Minari”), will also have the honor of gracing the Oscar stage once more.
Will Packer Will Produce The 2022 Oscars
Renowned producer Will Packer will be producing the 94th Academy Awards ceremony. While this is Packer’s first time producing the Oscars, he’s famous for producing several top-rated films, including “Girls Trip,” “Straight Outta Compton,” and “Think Like a Man.”
He expressed his excitement for the opportunity in a statement to Deadline, where he said, “I’m fully embracing the challenge of bringing an ode to one of the most iconic mediums in the world to life. What an honor.” He also commented on the ceremony and congratulated the first lineup of celebrity presenters.
“Movies inspire us, entertain us and unite us across the globe,” he said, “That’s the precise goal of the show this year, and we’re thrilled to welcome the first of a stellar lineup joining the Oscars stage to help us celebrate the power of film and honor the year’s best in filmmaking.”
The Oscars Will Have Three Hosts
The Academy previously announced that this year’s ceremony would have three women as hosts for the upcoming ceremony. This news left many fans with mixed feelings, shock because this has never happened before, and excitement to see how it will play out.
The history-making hosts are 40-year-old American stand-up comedian Amy Schumer, 51-year-old renowned actress Regina Hall, and 57-year-old actress, comedian, and writer, Wanda Sykes.
The three stars will host alongside the usual set of celebrity presenters. They will also be working together, side-by-side, as opposed to hosting at different times as fans thought. Since the last one hosted in 2018 by Jimmy Kimmel, COVID-19-related issues have affected the show.
Vaccination Is Required For All Attendees
According to the New York Times, the Academy Awards this year will reportedly require proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for most of the attendees, but not all. The Academy recently announced that all the nominees and guests must show proof of vaccination. They must also test negative two times via PCR testing.
However, the performers and award presenters do not necessarily need to show vaccination proof for admittance, but they will be tested. This stance is interesting, as it stands out from the recent Critics Choice Awards and SAG Awards which required proof of vaccination for all.
