The Avengers Set to Save Us From A Boring Academy Awards Ceremony

The cast of The Avengers will swoop in and hand out some awards at The Oscars later this month, saving us from a boring ceremony, and the careers of some nominees, too. 

"We are happy to re-unite the Avengers cast to present on our show... Audiences who enjoyed the year's biggest box office hit will be excited to see these terrific actors back together again," producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement. 

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo will present together at this year's Oscars ceremony Feb. 24, but perhaps notably, Scarlett Johansson will be absent from proceedings. The Avenger has never been nominated for an Oscar, something that is becoming all the more prevalent every year she receives a snub. 

Downey has twice been nominated for an Oscar, for his leading role in Chaplin as well as for his supporting role in Tropic Thunder. Jackson too has two; he was nominated in 1994 for his supporting role in Pulp Fiction and in this year's Best Picture nominee for Django Unchained. Renner was nominated for his leading role in the 2009 Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker and for his supporting role in The Town. He also had roles in this year's The Bourne Legacy and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Ruffalo received his first nomination for his supporting role in the 2010 Best Picture nominee, The Kids Are All Right.
