Jack Black will “make a special appearance.”

Lady Gaga will be performing a “special tribute.”

Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Hudson are set to perform but no word on what. Much rumbling can be heard that a possible tribute to The Sound of Music might be happening. It is the 50th anniversary and Oscar producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan are kind of obsessed with musicals. But, unless we hear that Julie Andrews is going to be a part of something I wonder what’s the point? Unless they’re going to try and keep something like that under wraps.

Host Neil Patrick Harris will perform “an original multimedia, musical sequence” called “Moving Pictures”, written by “Let It Go” writers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer, Michael Strahan, Joe Zee and Jess Cagle will the Oscars pre-show and Red Carpet special.

Margot Robbie and Miles Teller are the Sci/Tech ceremony hosts.




The 87th Academy Awards, celebrating outstanding film achievements of 2014, will be presented on Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and will be televised live on ABC and in more than 225 countries worldwide.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
