Lady Gaga among 2022 Oscars presenters – Music News
Lady Gaga will present an award at the 94th Academy Awards following her best actress snub.
The singer was expected to receive an Oscar nomination for her performance in House of Gucci, as it had been recognized by all the other major awards bodies, but she was surprisingly snubbed when the shortlist was revealed in February.
However, on Thursday it was announced that she would still be part of the ceremony – as a presenter.
She will be joined by fellow presenters Kevin Costner, Youn Yuh-jung, Rosie Perez, Chris Rock and Zoë Kravitz. The Academy hasn’t announced what awards it will hand out, but Yuh-jung is expected to present Best Supporting Actress since winning the award last year for Minari.
“Movies inspire us, entertain us and unite us across the world,” Oscar producer Will Packer said in a statement. “That’s what the show is all about this year, and we’re thrilled to welcome the first of a stellar lineup joining the Oscars stage to help us celebrate the power of cinema and honor the best movies in the world. year.”
Additional presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
In addition to her role as presenter, Gaga is also set to co-host the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscars Viewing Party with Billy Porter, Eric McCormack and David Furnish.
The Academy Awards will be hosted by Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer and Regina Hall at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on March 27.
