Hollywood icons John Travolta, Tim Robbins, his partner Susan Sarandon and Sandra Bullock have joined the list of this year's Oscar presenters, organisers said.
The quartet of movie heavyweights signed on to hand out the golden statuettes that mark the ultimate accomplishment in movie-making at the glittering February 29 Oscars ceremony.
Pulp Fiction and Saturday Night fever star Travolta is himself a two-times best-actor Oscar nominee for the two hit films that marked his career, made in 1977 and 1994 respectively.
He currently is filming Be Cool the sequel to Get Shorty and will be seen next in The Punisher followed by Ladder 49 and A Love Song for Bobby Long.
Long-term Tinseltown couple and political activists Sarandon and Robbins will do turns on the Oscars stage, even if best-supporting-actor nominee Robbins fails to win for his role in Mystic River.
Robbins was nominated for best director Dead Man Walking and has also starred in High Fidelity and The Shawshank Redemption, while Sarandon won a best-actress Oscar in 1995 for Dead Man Walking.
She also won nominations for her leading roles in Atlantic City in 1981, Thelma and Louise in 1991, Lorenzo's Oil in 1992 and The Client in 1994.
Miss Congeniality and Speed star Bullock will make her fourth appearance as an Oscar presenter, the show's producer Joe Roth said yesterday.
