Zendaya, Brad Pitt and Harrison Ford are among the famous faces who will be presenting awards at this year's Oscars ceremony.

They will be joined by the likes of Joker star Joaquin Phoenix, Legally Blonde actress Reese Witherspoon and One Night in Miami director Regina King, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said. Bong Joon Ho, who directed last year's best film winner Parasite, will also make an appearance at the ceremony on 25 April, along with Don Cheadle, Halle Berry, Bryan Cranston and Renee Zellweger.

The star-studded ceremony is taking place across two sites in California this year - its regular home at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood as well as Union Station in downtown Los Angeles.

Jesse Collins, Stacey Sher and Steven Soderbergh, the show's producers, said: "In keeping with our awards-show-as-a-movie approach, we've assembled a truly stellar cast of stars.
"There's so much wattage here, sunglasses may be required."
The show has been pushed back from its usual February date, as a result of the pandemic, which has forced the show to make a number of changes.
