The 2019 Oscars are about to get a lot more interesting. It was recently announced that the Best Picture nominees at the 91st Academy Awards ceremony will each have their own presenter.
The list of presenters features 11 high-profile personalities including Barbra Streisand, Queen Latifah, and Serena Williams. The trio will also be joined by Chef Jose Andres, Dana Carvey, Congressman John Lewis, Diego Luna, Tom Morello, Mike Myers, Trevor Noah, and Amandla Stenberg.
While the pairing of presenters and movies is still left to be revealed, we already have a good idea about some of them. It is expected that Streisand will be the one to present A Star Is Born since she starred in the 1976’s version of the movie. Also, since Myers acted in Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, he will probably present the movie alongside Carvey. The two previously co-starred in Wayne’s World which featured an iconic scene revolving around the song “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Other Best Picture nominees are Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, and Vice.
“Movies connect us all,” said 2019 Oscars producers Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss. “They move us, and they create moments and memories that unite us. We are thrilled to assemble this well-known array of film lovers to introduce and share their reflections on the Best Picture-nominated movies.”
