Curious who some of the Oscar presenters will be this year?

Well, here's a story from The Hollywood Reporter that lets us in on some of the names, with a focus on comedy:

The comedy line-up at the 82nd Academy Awards will include Sacha Baron Cohen, Jason Bateman, Steve Carell, Tina Fey and Ben Stiller, who have all signed on to serve as presenters.

It will be the first appearance for Baron Cohen, who had been considered by Oscar show producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman as a potential host of the show, and for Bateman, who currently costars in "Up in the Air."

Stiller has appeared on five previous Oscar telecasts; Carell has presented on three: and Fey, who’ll be sharing the stage at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood with her "30 Rock" co-star Alec Baldwin, who is co-hosting with Steve Martin, made her debut last year.



  1. It's also been confirmed that Tyler Perry will present as well. Is that good news? :/

  2. I'm not a fan of his films, but I have nothing against the man...

  3. Ben Stiller is always good. Steve has his ups and downs with jokes at awards shows and Tina is spot on most of the time. But when it comes to Oscars comedy nobody can take the glory from Will Ferrell and Jack Black. Without those two, the event is often missing a real laugh out loud song.
