In an attempt to turn the Oscars into a movie styled awards show, the producers have assembled an incredible cast of A-list stars

The Oscars 2021 ceremony may have had a delay of two months this year as a result of the pandemic but it has certainly not sacrificed on quality with an all-star list of celebrities that will be presenting the awards to the winners. 

In an attempt to style the Oscars more like a movie and not a television show, the Oscars, which will be taking place on April 26 (SGT), will be engaging some A-list celebrities to ensure that this is a must-see event.

This is even though it will be a significantly scaled-back event that will see only presenters, nominees and their guests in attendance physically.

The 2021 Oscars show will feature stars such as Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry and Reese Witherspoon who will be handing out the golden statuettes.

They will be joined by other familiar faces such as Don Cheadle, Renee Zellweger, Regina King, Joaquin Phoenix, Rita Moreno, Laura Dern, Zendaya, Angela Bassett, Bryan Cranston, Marlee Matlin and Bong Joon-ho. More stars will be announced in the coming weeks.
