Producers have named another group of stars set to present at Sunday's Academy Awards.

The latest celebrities added to the presenters' lineup are Melissa McCarthy, Salma Hayek, John Travolta and Liam Neeson.

All four actors are previous Oscar nominees. McCarthy earned a supporting actress nomination for her role in "Bridesmaids," Hayek received a leading actress nomination for "Frieda," Neeson was nominated for best actor for "Schindler's List" and Travolta's roles in "Saturday Night Fever" and "Pulp Fiction" each earned him a leading actor nominations.

They join previously-announced presenters Ben Affleck, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, the cast of the films "The Avengers" and "Chicago," four previous best actress winners and last year's Academy Awards acting winners.

The 85th Academy Awards will be presented Sunday, with the ceremony airing live on ABC beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
