A-list stars, Hollywood veterans and film newcomers alike will serve as presenters at the 2018 Oscars on Sunday. Perhaps most surprisingly, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will be back as well. Check out the full list of celebrities presenting at this year’s Academy Awards below!

In alphabetical order, those currently slated to present are Mahershala Ali, Beatty, Emily Blunt, Chadwick Boseman, Sandra Bullock, Dave Chappelle, Viola Davis, Eugenio Derbez, Laura Dern, Dunaway, Ansel Elgort, Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren, Jodie Foster, Gal Gadot, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig, Eiza Gonzalez, Tiffany Haddish, Mark Hamill, Armie Hammer, Salma Hayek, Taraji P. Henson, Oscar Isaac, Ashley Judd, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Rita Moreno, Kumail Nanjiani, Lupita Nyong’o, Margot Robbie, Gina Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Eva Marie Saint, Annabella Sciorra, Patrick Stewart, Emma Stone, Wes Studi, Tom Holland, Kelly Marie Tran, Daniela Vega, Christopher Walken and Zendaya.

As always, the group includes a number of past winners, including Ali, Bullock, Davis, McConaughey and Stone. In addition, a few current nominees will be taking the stage, such as Robbie and Nanjiani. History will also be made as Vega will be the first transgender actress to present at the esteemed event. She is the star of A Fantastic Woman, which is among the Best Foreign Film nominees.

While in years past the winners of Best Actor and Best Actress from the year prior have returned to help crown the next generation, that tradition will be ending with this ceremony. In January, Casey Affleck, who won Best Actor in 2017 for Manchester By The Sea, opted to drop out of the 2018 show amid the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. He has previously been accused of sexual harassment. Just days ago, it was revealed Lawrence and Foster, both Oscar winners as well, would likely take his place as the presenters for Best Actress.

But the most anticipated presentation of the night will be led by Beatty and Dunaway. In an unprecedented mix-up, they were handed the wrong envelopment last year while presenting Best Picture, leading to the inaccurate announcement that La La Land had won. The actual winner was Moonlight. The stunning moment led to an unexpectedly confusing end to a celebratory night.

Now just over a year later, the screen legends are returning to the Dolby Theater for a do-over of sorts. Of course, new protocols have been put in place in hopes of ensuring such a screw-up never occurs again. But this is Hollywood, after all. You never know what may happen. Gossip Cop will have full coverage on Sunday.
