Whoopi Goldberg, Ryan Gosling to present at the Oscars

Los Angeles: Whoopi Goldberg, Ryan Gosling, Kevin Hart, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Charlize Theron, Jacob Tremblay, The Weeknd and Pharrell Williams will be presenters or performers at the 88th Oscar ceremony, producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin have announced.

The announcement, however, didn't specify whether Gaga, Smith and the Weeknd will perform their Oscar-nominated songs from "The Hunting Ground," "Spectre" and "Fifty Shades of Grey," respectively.

"Each of these artists brings a wonderfully distinctive element to the Oscars stage," Hill and Hudlin said in a statement.

"Together they represent the many thrilling ways stories can be shared about the human experience, and we're honored they will be part of the celebration."

The Oscars, to be hosted by Chris Rock, will be held on February 28, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live by the ABC Television Network and in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
