The first slate of presenters for the 2018 Oscars were announced Friday.

"Whether returning to the Oscars stage or gracing it for the first time, each of these artists bring their own distinguishing and energetic appeal," Producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd told E! News in a statement. "Their contributions will make for an unforgettable evening."

Jimmy Kimmel will return to host the 90th Academy Awards live Sunday, March 4, on ABC. Here is the first wave of actors, directors and screenwriters who will present at the ceremony:

The Greatest Showman

Bucking tradition, last year's Best Actor winner, Manchester by the Sea's Casey Affleck, will not present the Best Actress award this year; the five women nominated in that category are Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) and Meryl Streep (The Post). Guillermo Del Toro's The Shape of Water received 13 nominations, more than any other movie.
