Alright get this, Charlize is from Benoni, Trevor is from Soweto and Anele is from the Eastern Cape and all of this home brewed talent will bless the Oscars with some magic from the Motherland? Oh man, what a time to be alive!

Internationally acclaimed comedian and television host, Trevor Noah will join forces with fellow South African native, Charlize Theron to present one of the 8 Best Picture Nominees at this years 91st Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, which are set to take place at The Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles.

Our golden stars will be part of a few other American entertainers including, Barbara Streisand, Serena Williams, Queen Latifah and Mike Myers and other prominent figures in Hollywood Entertainment.


Adding more of that Mzansi flavour is another one of our own - Anele Mdoda. The multitalented media star has been roped in to host the red carpet edition for the Oscars. This amazing opportunity forms part of MNET's programme scheduling.


Below are just some for the few snaps from Trevor's glittery Instagram feed. We have selected posts that shows just how much fun our beloved comedian is having in America with A- list Hollywood stars.
