Show producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain announced the final slate of presenters for the 92nd Oscars telecast.
The Oscars are televised live on Sunday, February 9, 2020, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood. The production will air live on ABC at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific. “The Oscars Red Carpet Show” will air at 6:30 p.m. Eastern/3:30 p.m. Pacific. The live telecast will air in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
Presenters are key this year because the show producers once again opted not to have an emcee for the event after Kevin Hart’s problematic tweets surfaced prior to last year’s telecast. His tweets were met with outrage and he backed out of being emcee, leaving producers scrambling.

Presenters for the telecast include A-List Hollywood talent and established names in entertainment along with a diverse range of emerging stars. This year, the presenters include Jane Fonda, Josh Gad, Tom Hanks, Oscar Isaac, Sandra Oh, Natalie Portman, Chris Rock and Taika Waititi.
