The complete list of Academy Awards ceremony presenters has been unveiled, and among the many Hollywood giants set to appear is 23-year-old Emma Watson, perhaps best known as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series. Watson will appear alongside such big names as Harrison Ford, Angelina Jolie, John Travolta, Amy Adams and many more. A full list of the nominees and their categories can be found on the Oscars' official website. Fresh off her role in The Bling Ring, a 2013 black comedy based on real events, as well as a brief and hilarious appearance in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's directorial debut, This Is the End, Watson has been hard at work making a name for herself outside of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. But that's not all the ambitious young actress has been busy with over recent months. Watson has also reinvigorated her focus on achieving a quality education, studying at Brown University in New York and majoring in English, with a graduation date slotted for this coming May. Watson's hectic filmmaking schedule had prevented her from pursuing her academic goals in the past, but now she's determined to obtain her degree. Speaking with Wonderland magazine earlier this month, Watson detailed her experiences living in New York during Hurricane Sandy, behaving as an independent woman, and her tendencies towards the socially awkward in the face of the partying scene, showing herself to be something of an anomaly among the Hollywood elite: “I feel like I have so much more to accomplish as an actress. I’d love to try theater and that’s a whole other thing. But when I finish my degree, I will have a lot more time to pursue other passions, and I want to figure out what those will be. I love having something completely unrelated to the film industry. I want to find something that will let me use my brain in another way. I like connecting people who aren’t part of that world too.” Read the full interview here! Emma Watson is next set to appear in the upcoming Biblical epic Noah, which tells the story of the titular religious character and his struggle to protect his family from the apocalyptic flood, as well as his construction of the famed ark. Watson will play the role of Ila, Noah's adopted daughter.
