“I’m excited to present an Oscar with Mark Wahlberg,” said Ted. “I’m spending the next month learning to pronounce ‘Quvenzhané.’”

Wahlberg has twice been nominated for Academy Awards®, in 2006 for his supporting role in “The Departed,” and in 2010 as a producer of the Best Picture nominee “The Fighter.”

Wahlberg and Ted join a stellar list of previously announced Oscar performers including Adele, Norah Jones and Barbra Streisand.

Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby Theatre™ at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane live on the ABC Television Network.  The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.

    All of this anticipation for the Academy Awards is killing me! Now that I know Wahlberg and Ted are presenting, it’s overwhelming. It should be great seeing all of the stars all together again. I’ll be working late at DISH on the night that the Awards show airs, so that’s a bummer. I’ll have peace of mind knowing that during primetime, my DISH Hopper DVR will automatically record all four networks using the PrimeTime Anytime feature. With it enabled, I can be recording up to six shows at once during primetime, so I won’t miss any of my favorite shows.
