Oscars 2022: Academy adds Vanessa Hudgens, Terrence J and Brandon Maxwell as presenters

They join the ranks of previously announced presenters Lady Gaga, Bill Murray and Sean 'Diddy' Combs.
LOS ANGELES -- Actress Vanessa Hudgens, actor Terrence J and fashion designer Brandon Maxwell are among the latest batch of celebrities who have been added to the Oscars telecast, producers Will Packer and Shayla Cowan said Wednesday.

DJ M.O.S. will also make a special appearance at the ceremony, which returns to the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Sunday, March 27.

They join the ranks of previously announced presenters Lady Gaga, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong'o, DJ Khaled, Tony Hawk, Sean 'Diddy' Combs, Shawn Mendes and Zoë Kravitz, along with last year's winners Daniel Kaluuya, Anthony Hopkins and Youn Yuh-jung.
