Zac Efron: Presenting Duties at the 2014 Academy Awards

Posted Sunday March 2, 2014 9:05 PM GMT

When it comes to awards shindigs it doesn’t get any bigger than this, and the 86th Academy Awards welcomed Zac Efron to the red carpet outside Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre earlier tonight (March 2).

The “Lucky One” stud smiled for the shutterbugs as he navigated through the arrivals area, excited about the evening ahead.

This evening Zac will be on stage to present one of the many golden statues to be awarded during the show.

It has been an especially-exciting awards show season, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences certainly didn’t suffer from a shortage of worthy contenders from which to choose.

The hopefuls for Best Picture include “American Hustle,” “Nebraska,” “Captain Phillips,” “Philomena,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Gravity,” “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Her.”
