Oscar winner Charlize Theron and Oscar nominee the Weeknd.

The Academy Awards has released its initial wave of presenters and performers for the Oscars ceremonies at the Dolby Theater on February 28. Chris Rock helms the controversial ceremony that, you may have heard, has an all-white slate of acting nominees for the second year in a row. While the Academy can't do anything about the nominees, it still has to choose the various presenters who will read TelePrompTers and hand out awards to the winners.

“Together they represent the many thrilling ways stories can be shared about the human experience,” show producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin said in a statement. The current list of performers and presenters ranges from previous Oscar winners Charlize Theron and Whoopi Goldberg to funny people Tina Fey and Kevin Hart.

And the presenters and performers thus far are...

Benicio Del Toro
Tina Fey
Lady Gaga
Whoopi Goldberg
Ryan Gosling
Kevin Hart
Sam Smith
Charlize Theron
Jacob Tremblay
The Weeknd
Pharrell Williams
