The full list of Oscar presenters has been released, and it’s a pretty solid lineup. There are some heavy hitters, a couple of legends, and a lot of eye candy. Since we know each presenter will be paired up for roughly 30 seconds of either mindless chatter or amusing riffing, here are the best matches we can hope for.
Odd Couple Pairings (For Maximum Awkwardness)
Daniel Day-Lewis and Zac Efron
Zac Efron was in The Lucky One and I’ve always got the feeling that Daniel Day-Lewis could kill you with his mind. A match made in heaven!
Samuel L. Jackson and Goldie Hawn
He’ll drop an f-bomb and she’ll giggle tipsily through her bangs. Adorable.
Harrison Ford and Whoopi Goldberg
She has a lot of energy and sometimes says horrible things. He has no time for any of this.
Pairs to Set That Place On Fire (It’s a three hour show. Enjoy the view.)
Penélope Cruz and Amy Adams
I’m predicting a lot of inner boob.
Anna Kendrick and Chris Hemsworth
He would just pick her up with his pinky.
Michael B. Jordan and Jennifer Lawrence
The presenters you most want to hang out with after the show.
Benedict Cumberbatch and NO ONE.
No one deserves to be paired with Cumberbatch. NO ONE.
Mind-Blowing Pairs of Awesomeness
Kristen Bell and Bill Murray
So much spunk!
Christoph Waltz and Kevin Spacey
Just imagine. The stares. The monologues. The potential for dance-offs!
Matthew McConaughey and Kim Novak
I don’t care if she is 81, I want to see McConaughey take off his shirt and hit on Kim Novak.
