Jennifer Lawrence, Jodie Foster reportedly presenting Best Actress at Oscars

Casey Affleck has withdrawn from presenting the Best Actress Award at the upcoming Oscars, Deadline hears.

With the 2018 Oscars taking place in Los Angeles on Sunday, the lucky winners won't be the only ones taking the stage.

You get what you give, which is what the spirit of presenting at the Academy Awards is all about.

Affleck bowed out nearly two months ago, reportedly to avoid becoming a distraction due to the fact that he'd previously settled two sexual harassment lawsuits over his behavior while shooting the 2010 film I'm Still Here.

Other presenters include last year's Best Supporting Actor victor Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Best Supporting Actress Viola Davis (Fences), Jennifer Garner and Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.

Emma Stone, who won Best Actress for La La Land in 2017, was one of the first presenters announced for this year's ceremony, to reveal the Best Actor victor.

Casey Affleck has pulled out of presenting the Best Actress award last months as he doesn't want to "distract" from the #MeToo movement.

Affleck has two lawsuits filed against him by former colleagues on the 2010 movie I'm Still Here.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is doing things a bit differently this year and will have two actresses present the award for best lead actress at the 90th Academy Awards. Adamantly denying the allegations, Affleck claims he is being extorted by both parties.

The Academy confirmed the news in a statement saying: "We appreciate the decision to keep the focus on the show and on the great work of this year".

Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the ceremony, which will take place in the Doby Theatre in LA.
