Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o will return to the Dolby Theatre to present Academy Awards on Feb. 22, Oscar show producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan announced on Wednesday.
The quartet all won Oscars in the acting categories last year. McConaughey and Leto won Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively, both for “Dallas Buyers Club.” Blanchett won Best Actress for “Blue Jasmine,” while Nyong’o was named Best Supporting Actress for “12 Years a Slave.”
The previous year’s four acting nominees are typically the first presenters announced, and the announcement of McConaughey, Blanchett, Leto and Nyong’o, which was first made on Twitter, were indeed the first presenters to be revealed on the show.
The 87th Academy Awards will take place on Feb. 22 at the Dolby Theatre and will be broadcast live on ABC.
