Anne Hathaway presenting at Oscars

Anna Hathaway has been announced as a presenter at this year's Academy Awards.

The actress took home the Academy Award for best supporting actress in 2013 thanks to her portrayal of Fantine in Les Misérables.

She might not be in the running for a golden statuette this time around, but that won't stop her from taking to the stage it was announced today.

Anne, 31, joins last year's best actor winner, Lincoln star Daniel Day-Lewis, who was announced to present at the ceremony earlier this week.

Jennifer Lawrence, who took home the best actress prize for Silver Linings Playbook in 2013, will also be handing out a statue.

It's not the first time Anne has been involved in the Oscars buzz even when she's not nominated.

In 2011 she presented the show alongside This Is the End star James Franco.

When Anne picked up her award last year she was criticised for her acceptance speech, which some found too gushy for the occasion.

In it she thanked her co-star Hugh Jackman, referring to him as "the best".

"It came true. Thank you so much to the Academy for this and for nominating me..." she addressed the audience.

"...I want to thank my friends... My family, who I'm so blessed to be a part of. My husband [Adam Shulman]. By far and away, the greatest moment of my life is the one when you walked into it. I love you so much."

The Oscars will take place on March 2 with Ellen DeGeneres hosting.

Christian Bale, Bruce Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Matthew McConaughey are all in the running for best actor.

Amy Adams, Dame Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep will be competing for the best actress gong.
