Today the Oscars producers released the final list of presenters and performers for the February 24th broadcast. Apparently there’s going to be a celebration of movie musicals featuring Jennifer Hudson from Dreamgirls, Catherine Zeta-Jones representing Chicago, and basically the entire cast of Les Misérables. As long as Anne Hathaway doesn’t debut her own tearful rendition of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” this should be an all-around win. I mean, have you seen Aaron Tveit?
Way hotter than Robespierre
If you prefer divas of the pop variety, we’ve got you covered. Adele, Norah Jones, and Barbra Streisand are all set to perform, which means that your mom and grandma will probably be tuning in too. As for presenters, the producers are clearly trying to nab that young demographic any way that they can (barring ever inviting James Franco back). Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Kristin Stewart and Channing Tatum will all be making appearances, along with Hollywood heavyweights like Meryl Streep, John Travolta, Jack Nicholson and Samuel L. Jackson. You can peep the full list here on Vulture.
