With just a few days to go until the 2024 Oscars, it’s time to learn what viewers can expect to see during Hollywood’s biggest night — including who will be handing out the coveted golden statues. 

Since early last week, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has been revealing the presenters for the upcoming ceremony, and there are quite a few Oscar winners and current nominees on the list. 

"Barbie" stars Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera, who are both nominated in the supporting acting categories, will present awards. Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo, who will appear together in the highly anticipated movie "Wicked," which arrives at the end of the year, have been tapped to announce some winners, too.

So who else will make an appearance at the 96th Academy Awards? Well, the academy confirmed the presenters in three separate lists.

The following were announced in the first group of actors set to hit the stage on Sunday, March 10, to present an award:

  • Mahershala Ali
  • Nicolas Cage
  • Jamie Lee Curtis
  • Brendan Fraser
  • Jessica Lange
  • Matthew McConaughey
  • Lupita Nyong’o 
  • Al Pacino
  • Michelle Pfeiffer
  • Ke Huy Quan
  • Sam Rockwell
  • Michelle Yeoh
  • Zendaya 

Yeoh and Fraser won best actress and best actor at the 2023 Oscars for their performances in “Everything Everywhere All at Once” and “The Whale,” respectively.

Curtis and Quan, who both were presented with golden statues last year in the supporting actress and actor categories for their work in “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” will also be in attendance to present.

On Feb. 29, the academy revealed more presenters.

"Meet your second slate of presenters for the 96th Oscars," the award show's official account shared on X.

The second slate of presenters included:

  • Bad Bunny
  • Chris Hemsworth
  • Dwayne Johnson
  • Michael Keaton
  • Regina King
  • Jennifer Lawrence
  • Kate McKinnon
  • Rita Moreno
  • John Mulaney
  • Catherine O'Hara
  • Octavia Spencer
  • Ramy Youssef

A few days before the ceremony, the academy unveiled the third list of stars who will be presenters.

"Meet your third slate of presenters for the 96th Oscars," the award show tweeted March 5.

The third group of actors and musicians announced are:

  • Emily Blunt
  • Cynthia Erivo
  • America Ferrera
  • Sally Field
  • Ryan Gosling
  • Ariana Grande
  • Ben Kingsley
  • Melissa McCarthy
  • Issa Rae
  • Tim Robbins
  • Steven Spielberg
  • Mary Steenburgen
  • Anya Taylor-Joy
  • Charlize Theron
  • Christoph Waltz
  • Forest Whitaker

The academy has been sharing bits of information about the awards ceremony over the past few months. In November, it was announced that Jimmy Kimmel will return to emcee the ceremony for the fourth time. In preparation for the big night, which will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, he appeared in a funny promo for the 96th Academy Awards featuring the cast of “Barbie.” 

The blockbuster film landed eight nominations, including best supporting actor and actress nominations for Gosling and Ferrera, respectively. “Oppenheimer,” “Poor Things” and “Killers of the Flower Moon” lead the pack with the most nominations. 

Regardless of who wins, the 96th Oscars has already made history, as three of the 10 flicks up for best picture were directed by women for the first time — “Past Lives” by Celine Song, “Barbie” by Greta Gerwig and “Anatomy of a Fall” by Justine Triet. 

Movie fans will find out which stars will get to add “Oscar winner” to their resume when the award show begins March 10 at 7 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT on ABC.
