Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and Ben Affleck have been chosen to present at this year’s Oscars.

Academy Award winner Affleck missed out on a nomination for directing Argo, but the film is up for best picture. Chastain is nominated for her lead performance in Zero Dark Thirty, as is Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook.

But producers aren’t just relying on nominees to hand each other gongs. Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Sandra Bullock have also been selected to present at the Oscars as all have previously won the award for best actress.

Berry won for her performance in  Monster’s Ball (2001), Bullock for  The Blind Side (2009), Kidman for  The Hours (2002) and Witherspoon for  Walk the Line (2005).

The Academy Awards hosted by Seth McFarlane take place on Sunday 24 February.
