As we count down to Sunday’s Academy Awards bonanza, Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have finalized their roster of presenters for the night—and this might just end up being my favorite part of the show. Announced today, iconic and wonderful human beings Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman will be hitting the stage once again to present their respective awards for the night.
No stranger to the Academy, Nicholson has been nominated 12 times for an award, winning himself a golden statue for his performances in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, As Good As It Gets, and Terms of Endearment, whereas ol’ Dusty has been nominated seven times and won for Kramer vs. Kramer and Rain Man. According to Zadan and Meron, "Between the two of them, Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman have created more iconic characters than any other pair of actors in the world…Their participation in this year’s Oscars completes a list of presenters and performers that truly represents that great breadth and depth of acting talent in film today." Yes, this is correct.
So let’s get excited to watch this handsome pair strut onstage with a look back at some of their finest moments at the Academy Awards. For the full annoucnement, take a look HERE.
