John Leguizamo has a date with Oscar…
The 61-year-old Colombian actor will serve as a presenter for this year’s Academy Awards show.
Leguizamo joins a roster of presenters that includes Daniel Kaluuya, Mila Kunis, Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Scott, Wesley Snipes, John Travolta, Ruth E. Carter, Kevin Costner, Anthony Hopkins, Zoë Kravitz, Lady Gaga, Lily James, Simu Liu, Rami Malek, Rosie Perez, Chris Rock, Uma Thurman and Yuh-Jung Youn.
The Oscars will air live on March 27 on ABC.
Oscarcast producers Will Packer and Shayla Cowan had previously discussed the presenters who’ll form part of the show.
“Movies inspire us, entertain us and unite us across the globe,” Packer said at the time. “That’s the precise goal of the show 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 film and honor the year’s best in filmmaking.”
The Power of the Dog leads the field with 12 nominations coming into this month’s Oscar show, and Dune is next with 10.
ABC will air the 94th annual Academy Awards live from Dolby Theatre in Hollywood at 5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm ET and in 200-plus territories around the world.
