Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, Girls Trip breakout star Tiffany Haddish, Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig and The Big Sick co-writer and actor Kumail Nanjiani are going to appear at the 90th annual Academy Awards. The show’s first round of presenters were announced on Friday.

Producers Jennifer Todd and Michael De Luca stated that Laura Dern, Tom Holland, Margot Robbie, Jennifer Garner and Daniela Vega will also be seen on the March 4 ceremony, along with past Oscar winners Viola Davis, Mahershala Ali and Emma Stone. Jimmy Kimmel is all set to host the show, which will be broadcast live on ABC. The ceremony will be held in Los Angeles.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences posted the list on its social media accounts. “Meet our first 12 #Oscars presenters! And tune in on Sunday, March 4, to watch the show live,” the tweet said. Here is the full list: Mahershala Ali, Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, Laura Dern, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig, Tiffany Haddish, Tom Holland, Kumail Nanjiani, Margot Robbie, Emma Stone, and Daniela Vega.

The Academy is doing their bit and taking the #OscarsSoWhite criticism seriously. Traditionally, the Oscar nominations and even ceremonies have been dominated by white males. Now the women, people of colour, and LGBTQ people have greater representation. The presenters’ list is also quite diverse.

Rachel Morrison, the talented cinematographer known to shoot Black Panther, has been nominated for her work in Netflix’s Mudbound. She is, the first woman to be nominated for best cinematography in the history of the Academy. Also, Jordan Peele is only the fifth black director to be nominated for best director. Oscar 2018 ceremony will be broadcast live on March 4.
