Hip-hop mogul Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and Oscar and Grammy winner Prince will be among the presenters Sunday at the 77th Academy Awards, to air live on ABC from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Calif.

Prince, who won two Grammy Awards earlier this month, won an Oscar for original song score in 1985 for “Purple Rain.” Combs will be seen in the upcoming “Carlito’s Way: The Beginning.”

It will be Combs’ first time as a presenter on the telecast, Oscar ceremony producer Gil Cates said Thursday. It also will be Prince’s first time presenting on the show.

Oscar presenters also include Mike Myers, Sean Penn, John Travolta, Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman and Tim Robbins.
