Continuing an Oscar tradition, last year's Academy Award-winning actors will return to this year's show to serve as presenters during the ceremony.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that Rami Malek, Olivia Colman, Regina King and Mahershala Ali will present Oscars to this year's crop of Academy Award acting winners.

Malek won the best actor Oscar last year for “Bohemian Rhapsody,'' while Colman was named best actress for “The Favourite.'' King and Ali won the supporting actress and actor Oscars for “If Beale Street Could Talk'' and “Green Book,'' respectively.

“We love the tradition of having the previous year's Oscar-winning actors on stage to celebrate the achievements of their peers and are thrilled to welcome back these four great talents,'' show producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain said in a joint statement.

The 92nd Oscars will be held Feb. 9 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
