Timothée Chalamet Will Present at This Year's Oscars
Other notable names include Zazie Beetz, Gal Gadot, Kristen Wiig and Mindy Kaling
The Academy may have robbed Timothée Chalamet of his well-deserved Oscar for Call Me By Your Name in 2018, but at least they're aware of how much of a draw the 24-year-old movie star could be for their ratings in 2020. Earlier this afternoon, the sometimes out-of-touch organization took to Twitter to announce that the Little Women heartthrob would be one of the announcers at this year's Academy Awards. Now that we know the adventurous style superstar will be attending the ceremony despite not being nominated, the only question left to ask is: What will he wear on the red carpet?
In addition to Chalamet, today's announcement also included a slew of other notable actors scheduled to present at the ceremony, including Joker's Zazie Beetz, Downhill's Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Wonder Woman's Gal Gadot, Late Night's Mindy Kaling, In the Heights' Lin-Manuel Miranda and Anthony Ramos, Dark Waters' Mark Ruffalo, Star Wars' Kelly Marie Tran, and Wonder Woman 1984's Kristen Wiig. That's a whole lot of star-power under one roof.
This announcement follows a similar one from last week, where the Academy revealed that, as usual, all four of last year's acting winners would return to the Dolby Theatre to present this year's acting awards. If they stick to tradition, that means Best Actor winner Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) will present for Best Actress; Best Actress winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite) will present for Best Actor; Best Supporting Actor winner Mahershala Ali (Green Book) will present for Best Supporting Actress; and Best Supporting Actress winner Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk) will present for Best Supporting Actor.
The 92nd Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 9, and will air live on ABC starting at 8:00pm EST.
