The Oscars will be handed out on February 9, 2020. Once again, for the third time in history, the event will not have a host. The nominations were announced earlier on January 13. Now, the Academy has released the list of the first set of presenters. The awards, this year, will be given out by the top winners of last year's Oscars. Mahershala Ali, Olivia Colman, Regina King and Rami Malek will be among the ones who'd be handing out the trophies to winners. We are already so excited about their OOTDs.
