The Oscars are once again without a host, which actually did make it feel less like an endurance test last year. But the presenters have been announced, and they are a more than adequate replacement.

The Academy has announced the following presenters for Sunday’s show: Spike Lee, Rebel Wilson, Ray Romano, Salma Hayek, Brie Larson, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Sandra Oh, Jane Fonda, Taika Waititi, Chris Rock, Natalie Portman, Josh Gad, Tom Hanks, Oscar Isaac, Keanu Reeves, James Corden, Penélope Cruz, Beanie Feldstein, Diane Keaton, Steve Martin, Zack Gottsagen, Shia LaBeouf, Maya Rudolph, George MacKay, Sigourney Weaver, Zazie Beetz, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Ruffalo, Gal Gadot, Timothée Chalamet, Will Ferrell, Mindy Kaling, Kristen Wiig, Kelly Marie Tran, Anthony Ramos, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Waititi responded to the announcement on Instagram, saying, “Lolz. Didn’t think there were any bridges left for me to burn.” However, the Jojo Rabbit director will likely pick up best adapted screenplay—and maybe more. “Are you presenting Best Adapted Screenplay?” joked director Edgar Wright.

People seem to be very excited about Keanu Reeves presenting, even advocating for some of his past work at the podium. Honestly, he was snubbed for his work in Always Be My Maybe.

And people had fun with the Oscar/Oscar thing.

Natalie Portman should absolutely present best director.

The Oscars air Sunday, February 9. Here’s how to stream all the nominated films.
