Nominees, shnominees! The Academy Awards ceremony wouldn't be what it is without the fearless few who take the stage to deliver canned quips and engage in awkward banter, all the while at the mercy of fickle teleprompters. We call these brave The Presenters.

And with the big show just hours away, we're taking a closer look at the famous faces who will grace the Dolby Theatre to read nominee names and foist statuettes with all the grace and dignity the office affords.
