The list of Oscar presenters is growing, with Uma Thurman and Dolly Parton the latest two additions to be announced by the Academy.

The Oscars will air Sunday, March 5 on ABC.

While Thurman’s big movie last year, The Producers, fizzled at the box office, she is currently shooting the comedy romance My Super Ex-Girlfriend, with Luke Wilson. She plays a superheroine with a bumpy personal life.

Parton is slated to take to the stage of Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre to perform her Oscar-nominated original song “Travelin’ Thru,” from the movie Transamerica, for which Felicity Huffman is up for Best Actress.

Also performing will be Kathleen “Bird” York, whose “In the Deep,” from Best Picture nominee Crash, is also in the running for Best Song.

Other presenters, so far, include last year’s two top acting winners, Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby) and Jamie Foxx (Ray), as well as Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock and last year’s Supporting Actor winner, Morgan Freeman.
