BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Michael B. Jordan, Daisy Ridley and Emily Blunt are confirmed as presenters for the Feb. 28 Oscars telecast in Los Angeles, producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin announced.

The ceremony honoring excellence in film will be hosted by Chris Rock on ABC.

The latest round of presenters includes several Oscar winners such as Patricia Arquette, Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, Common, Lou Gossett, Jr. and Eddie Redmayne. Also slated to hand out prizes are Abraham Attah, Louis C.K., Chris Evans, Jennifer Garner, Rachel McAdams, Dev Patel, Sarah Silverman and Sofia Vergara.

"Through their work, these artists have shown us the unique, transformative power of cinema," Hill and Hudlin said in a joint statement. "We are delighted they will be joining us on the Oscars stage this year."

Rock is seen in the latest promo for the Oscars teasing that the ceremony is the only ABC show Scandal and Grey's Anatomy writer-producer Shonda Rhimes doesn't own -- "yet."
