The Academy may be trying to make amends for Amy Adams’ Oscar snub, as she’s been asked to present an award at next weekend’s ceremony.
Many were shocked to see that Arrival‘s leading star missed out on a nomination after a stellar performance, especially as the film received eight nominations in total.
Presenting an award is a small consolation for Adams, who could have easily been nominated for Arrival or Nocturnal Animals. The Academy have also announced many other stars to grace the stage as a presenter next Sunday, these include:
Riz Ahmed, Javier Bardem, John Cho, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Felicity Jones, Leslie Mann, Janelle Monáe, David Oyelowo, Emma Stone, and Charlize Theron.
These big name actors join previously-announced presenters:
Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Mark Rylance, Alicia Vikander, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Halle Berry, Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Gael García Bernal, Shirley MacLaine, Kate McKinnon, and Hailee Steinfeld.
The 2017 Academy Awards show is hosted by Jimmy Kimmel on Sunday, Feb. 26th. See the full list of nominees here.
Apart from Adams and Di Caprio, most of the others are no names. The era of the great film star has finally come to an end. They killed themsevles off with decades of PC nonsense and preaching that nobody wanted to hear.
