Actors Awkwafina, Brie Larson, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amandla Stenberg, Tessa Thompson and Constance Wu will also be part of this year’s celebration, according to The Hollywood Reporter. More presenters will be announced in the next weeks leading up to the event.

The comedian announced on Twitter that he is not the one going to present the show after all. The main reason for this is that he does not want the criticism to distract people from the evening. He also apologised in the tweet to the LGBT community for his earlier comments.
“I’m sorry that I hurt people. It’s my goal to bring people together, not to disperse them,” he writes in a second tweet. “I want to thank the Academy for this opportunity, hopefully until next time.”
