This year’s Oscar Line up to be Star-Studded

For the 84th Academy Award Ceremony, the academy is putting together a brilliant line up of presenters. The ceremony will take place on the 26th of February. The ceremony hosted by the American Academy of Motion Pictures will honor the best films of 2011.

Eddie Murphy was set to host the show originally, but Billy Crystal has replaced him. This will be his 9th time to host it. Brian Grazer and Don Mischer will be producing it.

This week, Brian Grazer and Don Mischer have added yet another star to the already starry line-up of presenters at the Academy Awards. Angelina Jolie will be joining the talented lineup of presenters that includes Halle Berry, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lopez and the cast of Bridesmaids.

Though Jolie herself wasn’t nominated for her movie In the Land of Blood and Honey, she lent her voice to one of the nominees. She lent her voice to Tigress from Kung Fu Panda 2 which is nominated in the Best Animated Feature Category. Jolie has a bit of history with the Academy Awards. She has been nominated twice and she has won once. Previously, she was nominated for her performance in the movie Changeling in 2008. But it was her win in 1999 that gave a memorable introduction to her career. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress in the Supporting role for her performance in Girl, Interrupted.

She will be accompanied by her husband who is also an Oscar nominee. This year alone, Brad Pitt has two nominations and he is a part of another Oscar nominated movie too. He is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Lead role for his role in the movie Money Ball. As a producer of the movie The Tree of Life he is nominated again in the Best Picture Category.

The presenters’ line up currently stands at 12 including the cast of Bridesmaids. Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Maya Rudolph, and Kristen Wiig from the Oscar nominated film will be joining the ceremony as presenters. Bridesmaids is nominated under two categories.

A line up like that along with the host Billy Crystal promises a memorable Academy Awards ceremony in store for us.
