OSCARS 2011 | Updated List of Academy Award Presenters: The 83rd Academy Awards - produced by Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer - will be hosted by James Franco and Anne Hathaway.
So far, the list is far from complete, with last year’s quartet of acting winners - Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Mo’Nique, and Christoph Waltz - Oscars traditionally have the previous year’s winners announce the corresponding category of the opposite sex. “Within the body of the show, we are not doing any film montage sequences,” Cohen tells The Hollywood Reporter in an interview. Gone too will be the relatively new tradition, established just two years ago, of using five presenters to offer tribute testimonials about each of the best actor and actress nominees.
The awards will be presented on Sunday, February 27, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and televised live by the ABC Television Network beginning at 5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m. ET. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide. Some of the announced presenters are listed below:

Cate Blanchett
Robert Downey Jr.
