Annette Bening to present at 2011 Academy Awards
Annette Bening has joined the list of presenters for the 2011 Academy Awards, whose ceremony takes place on February 27 and airs live on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
Bening, 52, is nominated for an Oscar for her leading role in the movie "The Kids Are All Right," which sees her and Julianne Moore playing lesbian mothers. In the film, their children find their biological father and the womens' sperm donor, played by Mark Ruffalo, and bring him into the family's lives.
This is Bening's fourth Oscar nomination. She also received nods for her roles in the movies "Being Julia," "American Beauty" and "The Grifters."
Others set to present at the 2011 Academy Awards include Hugh Jackman, Robert Downey Jr., Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Marisa Tomei and Oprah Winfrey.
Bening won the Golden Globe Award for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical" last month for her part in "The Kids Are All Right." She beat Moore, Anne Hathaway of "Love & Other Drugs," Angelina Jolie of "The Tourist" and Emma Stone of "Easy A."
"If it's told honestly, it transcends even the most wacky ideas," Ruffalo told OnTheRedCarpet.com in July, when asked about "The Kids Are All Right."
Ruffalo received his first Oscar nomination for his role in the movie. He has also starred in films such as "13 Going on 30" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind."
This year's Oscar ceremony is set to air live on ABC from the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on Feb. 27, 2011. Check out a full list of Oscar nominations.
