*The Academy has increased its people of color in the presenters list.
Quincy Jones, Kerry Washington, “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra and actor Byung-hun Lee are among the 13 new names announced this afternoon as Oscar presenters.
The move comes as the Academy continues to be battered by the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, which took root after zero people of color were nominated in the major acting categories for the second consecutive year.
“These artists have enriched the international moviegoing experience with a range of memorable work from the comic to the profound,” producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin said of the new 13. “In the process, they have won over millions of fans, and we count ourselves among them.”
Whoopi Goldberg, Kevin Hart, Benicio del Toro, The Weeknd and Pharrell Williams were among the first round of presenters announced last week.
Here’s the full list of new presenters announced today:
The Oscars, hosted by Chris Rock, will take place on Feb. 28.
