Jennifer Aniston may have missed out on an Oscar nomination but she'll be at the ceremony anyway as a presenter.

The former Friends star is among a string of famous faces who have been confirmed to hand out those little golden statues at the 87th Academy Awards on Sunday, 22 February.

Jennifer will present at the Oscars.

Jen had been heavily tipped to land a 'Best Actress' nod for her role in the drama Cake, for which she received Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations, but unfortunately for her, she narrowly missed the cut.

She didn't seem that bothered though, joking that she'd now won the award for this year's biggest Oscar snub and insisting the fact Cake had been recognised at all this awards season was just fantastic.

"We're an embarrassment of wonderful riches for a movie that hasn't even been released, a teensy tiny movie. This is all just cherries on top of something really special to us," she told Access Hollywood.

Jen has been critically praised for her role in Cake.

Jen plays a woman suffering from chronic pain who becomes fascinated by the suicide of a young woman in her support group.

Alongside Jennifer, other big names confirmed to present on the night include Sienna Miller, Chris Pratt, Kerry Washington, Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Saldana and Josh Hutcherson.

John Travolta will also present again after last year's faux pas when he introduced 'Let It Go' singer Idina Menzel as Adele Dazeem. No, we still can't figure that one out either!

There are a string of famous performers as well including Rita Ora, who will sing the Oscar nominated song 'Grateful' from the movie Beyond The Lights.

Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Hudson will also sing.
