Oscars: Academy Forgoes Presenters for “Ensemble Cast” of 15 All-Stars

Read Time:1 Minutes, 24 Seconds

For this year’s Oscars ceremony, show producers Jesse Collins, Stacey Sher and Steven Soderbergh have made the decision to treat the ceremony not as an awards ceremony, opting to instead to treat the production of this year’s Oscars as a movie itself.

“In keeping with our awards-show-as-a-movie approach, we’ve assembled a truly stellar cast of stars,” said Collins, Sher and Soderbergh.  “There’s so much wattage here, sunglasses may be required.”

On April 23rd, Oscar nominee Steven Yeun was added to the “ensemble cast”.

Surprise!  We’re so excited to welcome Steven to the crew, and he completes our Oscars cast.  No, really, this is it.
