Oscars: Presenters Named

The presenters of the 2019 Oscars have been announced weeks after original choice Kevin Hart was forced to step down.

Daniel Craig, Jennifer Lopez, Tina Fey and Whoopi Goldberg will be among those introducing various segments of the ceremony.

They will be joined by Brie Larson, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amandla Stenberg, Charlize Theron, Tessa Thompson and Constance Wu, the Academy has announced.

Kevin Hart had been the original choice but was forced to step down amid backlash over past homophobic tweets.

A source from the Academy Awards previously told Variety that the board had struggled to find a suitable replacement for the US comedian, who was stepped down within hours of being selected.
