The event happens next month...
The Independent reports that last year's Best Actress winner at the Academy Awards, Jennifer Lawrence, has been named as the first presenter of the 2014 ceremony (the 86th). Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron revealed the news almost an hour after voting opened.
Lawrence is currently nominated for her role in American Hustle. When joined with her roles in Winter's Bone and Silver Linings Playbook, she's the youngest three-time nominee in the history of the event. When she won last year, she fell on the stairs and had a joking Q&A session with the press after the event.
It is tradition for the winners of the previous year to present the next year. The event will be held on March 2 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Ellen DeGeneres will host for the second time after doing so in 2007.
