MacLaine has a new movie coming out right after the ceremony airs (on March 3rd), and probably wants to be as visible as possible.

Briefly breaking my moratorium on posting. You mean the rendition she did in the film of the song from Follies?

82-year-old Shirley MacLaine has just been announced as one of the presenters.

I just had the silly thought that she will be there to follow the "in memoriam" segment by reprising her rendition of "I'm Still Here" from 1990's Postcards From the Edge, the film version of Carrie Fisher's semi-autobiographical novel in which she played Debbie Reynolds to Meryl Streep's Carrie.

Ugh - I'm really not a fan of his particular brand of humor.

I think it's an okay pick, but he just hosted the Emmys. Would be nice if they picked someone new.

Jimmy Kimmel to host the Oscars.

Somehow, I suspected this.
