With only one more day to go, the full list of those folks presenting Oscars at the 79th Academy Awards has been announced -- and, if you're anything like me, the excitement is simply unbearable. Hands twitching, forehead sweating ... what if Scorsese doesn't win? What will we do? Who shall we blame? And, if he does win, will they only give him five seconds to make a speech before bringing up the music?
Among the folks lining up to grace the stage are Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Leonardo DiCaprio, Clive Owen, Helen Mirren, Ben Affleck, Al Gore (so, he will be there!), Nicole Kidman and Jayden Christopher Syre Smith ... without papa Will Smith, apparently. One person who will not be presenting is Sacha Baron Cohen; though he was asked, Cohen turned down the offer when he was told he would not be able to present as Borat -- because God forbid the Oscars inject a little bit of life into their ceremony. In case you're interested in the full list of presenters, head on over to the AMPAS official site for more coolness. Also, stay tuned to Cinematical as we'll be live-blogging the awards ceremony as it happens. Stuck in an airport? On a train? A bus? At the house of a relative who refuses to take off those silly home movies? Fear not, we got your back!
