Carter, Kevin Costner, Anthony Hopkins, Lily James, Daniel Kaluuya, Zoë Kravitz, Mila Kunis, Lady Gaga, John Leguizamo, Simu Liu, Rami Malek, Lupita Nyong'o, Rosie Perez, Chris Rock, Naomi Scott, Wesley Snipes, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Halle Bailey, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Jamie Lee Curtis, Woody Harrelson, Samuel L. Jackson, Shawn Mendes, Tyler Perry. Tracee Ellis Ross, and Yuh-Jung Youn. The ceremony will be hosted by Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes.

The broadcast will also include a performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's "We Don't Talk About Bruno" from Encanto, a performance by Billie Eilish, the "biggest show opening in Oscars history," and a tribute to The Godfather.

The 94th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 27, 2022, at the Dolby® Theatre at Hollywood & Highland® in Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PDT and in more than 200 territories worldwide.
