CATEGORIES Oscar News, Awards

Wondering why Robin Williams was presenting the Best Supporting Actress award at this year's Oscars? Sure, he won the award for 'Good Will Hunting' but that was twelve years ago.

Tradition always has the winner of the previous year's award for actor present to the actresses in the category, but because the late Heath Ledger won for 'The Dark Knight' in 2009, the producers of the show had to come up with a substitute.

Was Williams the most suitable choice to present the award to Mo'Nique? If you don't think so, who should have presented in his place? A star from 'The Dark Knight' perhaps? Maybe Michael Caine, who won the award for 'The Cider House Rules'? Debate below. And tell us if you figured out right away why Williams was up on the stage.
