Meryl Streep Presenting At Oscars Alongside Halle Berry, Tom Cruise, And More

Posted: Updated:

It looks like Meryl Streep will have a busy Oscars night: The "Iron Lady" actress was announced as a presenter at the 84th Academy Awards on Tuesday.

Joining the ranks of Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, the "Bridesmaids" cast and more, Streep will be giving away an award -- and could be receiving one herself.

Streep, who has been nominated for 17 Academy Awards and taken home two statues, is nominated this year for her role as Margaret Thatcher in the "Best Actress" category.

Viola Davis is nominated in the same category for her starring role in "The Help." And while she has admitted that Streep may be the one to take home the Oscar, the question of who would win in a fight is a different story.

"Friendly competition -- although, I can whoop I whoop Meryl Streep's behind in a good, old fashioned street fight," Davis said of her longtime friend on CNN's "Showbiz Tonight" of her longtime friend.

The Oscars air on Sunday, February 26.
