With less than a week to go until show time, more stars have been named as presenters for Sunday’s Oscars.

Salma Hayek Pinault, Melissa McCarthy, Liam Neeson and John Travolta – all past nominees – will join a star-studded cast of presenters for the 85th annual Academy Awards ceremony.

The lineup already includes previous winners including Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Sandra Bullock, who will announce this year’s winners for the live telecast set for Sunday on ABC at 7 p.m. ET.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will host the show, which will include reunions of the Chicago cast on its 10th anniversary best-picture win, as well as the cast of The Avengers, with Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson set to present.

Performers for this year’s show include Adele, Dame Shirley Bassey, Norah Jones and Barbra Streisand.
