The sexy Salma Hayek is set to take the stage at the upcoming Academy Awards ceremony.

 The curvaceous actress, who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in “Frida,” will be joined onstage by Oscar-winning actresses Halle Berry, Meryl Streep and Octavia Spencer and last year’s breakthrough French actor Jean Dujardín, who won the Academy Award for best actor in the silent film “The Artist.”

The show will take place Sunday in Los Angeles.

According to entertainment site TV Notas, Ben Affleck will also be presenting. The actor/director’s film “Argo,” based on the rescue mission of six Americans during the Iranian hostage crisis, is up for multiple awards, including best picture.

Jennifer Lawrence who made a splash this year for her films “The Hunger Games” and “Silver Lining Playbook” will also take the stage along with Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.

The annual ceremony will also be a huge night for Mexican actor Gael García Bernal, whose film “No” received an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Film in what will be the only chance for a Latin American film to bring home an Oscar.

Directed by Pablo Larrain, the Chilean movie is set during Augusto Pinochet’s regime and delves into the life of advertising executive René Saavedra, who through a clever campaign is able to dethrone the dictator and his government.
