Jennifer Lawrence, Benedict Cumberbatch and Emma Watson are among the stars busy honing their "and the winner is…" spiels ahead of this year's Oscars.

The full list of presenters has been announced for Sunday night's ceremony, which will see American Hustle, Gravity and 12 Years a Slave battle for the most accolades.

Angelina Jolie, Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum are also lined-up to hand over some little golden men, as are Bill Murray, Jessica Biel and Hollywood legend Sidney Poitier.

The four acting winners from last year's awards - Lawrence, Daniel Day-Lewis, Anne Hathaway and Christoph Waltz - will present the 2014 victors with their Oscars.

Matthew McConaughey is tipped to win Best Actor for his performance as an AIDS sufferer in Dallas Buyers Club (he's even practised his acceptance speech), while Cate Blanchett is the Best Actress favourite for her role as a troubled socialite in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.

Kenyan newcomer Lupita Nyong'o will compete with Lawrence for Best Supporting Actress, as Jared Leto's portrayal of a trans woman goes up against Bafta-winning Barkhad Abdi for Best Supporting Actor.

Last week the contents of the $80,000 Oscars goodie bags were revealed. Along with the usual luxuries (think posh vodka, chocolate and beauty products), a vagina rejuvenation procedure is also being offered for 2014.

Designed by Dr Charles Runels, said 'O Shot' claims to "help women cure urinary incontinence and sex problems" while "rejuvenating" the vagina. Hair restoration surgery is available for the men while other gifts include aerial circus lessons and pepper spray guns.
