It was released today, Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, by show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (in a press release) that Christoph Waltz, last year's Oscar winner for Best Performance by a Supporting Actor for "Django Unchained," will be presenting at this year's Oscars. This really doesn't come as much of a surprise since it is tradition that the winners from the previous year often present the following year. In this case, Waltz is most likely set to present the Oscar for the Best Performance by a Supporting Actress - of which could be Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave"), Jennifer Lawrence ("American Hustle"), Sally Hawkins ("Blue Jasmine"), June Squibb ("Nebraska") or Julia Roberts ("August: Osage County").

Christoph Waltz won his first Academy Award in 2009 for his performance in "Inglourious Basterds" and snagged his second Oscar last year in "Django Unchained." Both films were directed by two-time Academy Award winning filmmaker Quentin Tarantino. Waltz has several film slated to be released in 2014, including: the family flick "Muppets Most Wanted," the biopic of painter Margaret Keane "Big Eyes," and the comedy "Horrible Bosses 2."

The 86th Annual Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, March 2, 2014, and will be held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center. The night will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres live on ABC and will be televised in more than 225 countries worldwide
