The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, along with telecast producers Brian Grazer and Don Mischer, have continued their announcements of presenters for the 84th Academy Awards adding Bradley Cooper to the list.
Cooper will next be seen in The Words and, later this year, in The Place Beyond the Pines and The Silver Linings Playbook.
Cooper joins a stellar list of previously announced Oscar presenters, including Halle Berry, who won an Oscar® in 2001 for her lead performance in Monster’s Ball. She will next star opposite Tom Hanks and Hugh Grant in Cloud Atlas.
Hanks will also be a presenter at this year’s ceremony. Hanks, who is a governor of the Academy, won consecutive Oscars® in 1993 and 1994 for his lead performances in Philadelphia and Forrest Gump. He was also nominated for his leading roles in Big, Saving Private Ryan and Cast Away. Hanks can currently be seen in the Best Picture-nominated Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.
Past nominee Tom Cruise will also make an appearance. Cruise was nominated for his lead performances in Born on the Fourth of July and Jerry Maguire. He also was nominated for his supporting role in Magnolia.
Tom’s Vanilla Sky co-star Penélope Cruz will also return to the Kodak Theater as a presenter. Cruz won an Oscar in 2008 for her supporting role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona and was nominated for her lead performance in Volver (2006) and supporting role in Nine (2009).
Also helping hand out awards will be Cameron Diaz, who can be seen in the upcoming What to Expect When You’re Expecting and Angelina Jolie, who took home the Oscar in 1999 for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Girl, Interrupted, and was nominated in 2008 for her lead performance in Changeling.
The cast of Bridesmaids - Ellie Kemper, Best Supporting Actress nominee Melissa McCarthy, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Maya Rudolph, and Best Original Screenplay nominee Kristen Wiig – were previously announced to present, as well as Jennifer Lopez, Milla Jovovich, and Emma Stone, who stars in the multi-nominated The Help.
Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2011 will be presented on Sunday, February 26, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and televised live by the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide
