The first round of presenters on the upcoming 2018 Academy Awards has been revealed on Friday. Margot Robbie, Emma Stone, Mahershala Ali, Chadwick Boseman, Jennifer Garner, Kumail Nanjiani, Viola Davis, Laura Dern, Greta Gerwig, Tiffany Haddish, Tom Holland, and Daniela Vega will all appear at the ceremony and present the Oscar statues to the winners. Of course, some of these presenters might end up winning the Academy Award the same night they are presenting it to others.

Greta Gerwig received two Academy Award nominations for her directorial debut Lady Bird and has a chance to win awards for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. Kumail Nanjiani shares his Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay with his wife Emily V. Gordon for romantic comedy Big Sick. Margot Robbie snatched the Best Actress nominations for the movie I, Tonya, while Daniela Vega stars in the movie A Fantastic Woman, which was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film.

“Whether returning to the Oscars stage or gracing it for the first time, each of these artists brings their own distinguishing and energetic appeal,” said producers of the 2018 Academy Awards, Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. “Their contributions will make for an unforgettable evening.”

The 90th Academy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on March 4, 2018. Although the annual ceremony is usually held in late February, this time the 2018 Academy Awards were moved in order to avoid the conflict with this year’s Winter Olympics. The ceremony will be directed by Glenn Weiss, who is taking this role for the fourth time in his career. Talk show host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel will be returning as a host from 2017, becoming the first person to host the awards in two consecutive years since Billy Crystal did it in 1997 and 1998.
