Lady Gaga might have missed out on an Oscar nomination for her turn in House of Gucci, but she’ll still be gracing the stage to present an award at the Dolby Theatre on March 27 as part of the 94th Oscars, the show's producers, Will Packer and Shayla Cowan, said.

Others presenters include Kevin Costner, Chris Rock, Zoe Kravitz, Rosie Perez and Youn Yuh-jung, who won the Best Supporting Actress award last year for Minari. More will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Movies inspire us, entertain us and unite us across the globe,” Packer said. “That’s the precise goal of the show this year, and we’re thrilled to welcome the first of a stellar line-up joining the Oscars stage to help us celebrate the power of film and honour the year’s best in filmmaking.”

Comedians Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes were announced as hosts last month, after three consecutive years without one, a move organisers are hoping will attract more audiences after dismal viewership in the pandemic era.

It’s the first time hosting for all three women and the first time in 35 years there has been this many hosts for one broadcast.

The Academy also announced social media campaigns to help boost engagement ahead of awards night by partnering with Twitter. Using the hashtag #OscarsFanFavorite, users are encouraged to vote for their top 2021 movies, and the film with the most votes will be recognised at the ceremony. Three Twitter users will also get the chance to travel to the ceremony in 2023 on an all-expenses-paid trip.

An #OscarsCheerMoment has also been introduced, which will allow fans to tweet about their favourite scene from a 2021 film. The winning scenes will also be shown at the Oscars ceremony, alongside the fans' tweets. Five users who participated in the campaign will also receive prizes, which include a year's supply of movie tickets, subscriptions to streaming services and collectables from the Academy Museum.

The 94th Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, March 27 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.
