The 2022 Oscars are just weeks away, and on Thursday, March 3, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that Lady Gaga and Zoë Kravitz will be among the presenters at the March 27 awards show.

Also on the initial list is Dances With Wolves director Kevin Costner, Minari‘s Youn Yuh-jung, Rosie Perez, and comedian Chris Rock.

“Movies inspire us, entertain us and unite us across the globe,” said Oscars producer Will Packer in a statement. “That’s the precise goal of the show this year, and we’re thrilled to welcome the first of a stellar lineup joining the Oscars stage to help us celebrate the power of film and honor the year’s best in filmmaking.”
