In the 20-years since the '90s, Brad PittTom HanksKathy Bates and more stars continue to be mainstays on the awards circuit—during Bates, Hanks and Pitt's careers they've been to the Academy Awards at least five-times each, whether it be as a nominee or a presenter.

And other critically acclaimed stars will be there as well, including Diane KeatonSigourney Weaver and Steve Martin, who are set to present for the various categories and big moments.

All in all, Sunday night's event promises to be a glamorous affair filled with star sightings, reunions and heartfelt moments. And, as always, the Best Original Song nominees will be performing their songs, as well as Grammy-winner Billie Eilish who is speculated to be performing her new song for the Bond movie on the Dolby theater stage.
