The 2016 Tony Awards just received another injection of Hollywood star power as the first batch of presenters for this year’s summertime ceremony were announced on Thursday. Joining host James Corden on the stage, Oprah Winfrey, Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett are among several big-name presenters for the evening, along with Carole King, Audra McDonald, Patina Miller, Nathan Lane, and nominees Steve Martin and Edie Brickell.

In addition to a display of dressed-to-the-nines red carpet moments—does Cate Blanchett ever fail to land on our list of favorites?—we can look forward to standout performances. Performers and additional presenters will soon be announced. Those taking the stage will be tasked with entertaining a roster of nominated stars that reads like the guest list to an Oscars after-party with Lupita Nyong’o, Michelle Williams, and Jessica Lange among the leading ladies.
