Kate Winslet and Penelope Cruz will be presenters on Oscar night.

British star Kate - who took home a coveted gong for The Reader last year - will join the Spanish actress, who has been nominated for her performance in Nine, at the glitzy ceremony on March 7.

Two-time Academy Award winner Sean Penn is also among the line-up of presenters.

Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will host the big night, now in its 82nd year, which takes place at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

"I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy Alec Baldwin," joked Steve.

30 Rock star Alec added: "I don't play the banjo but I'm thrilled to be hosting the Oscars - it's the opportunity of a lifetime."
