Renee Zellweger & Joaquin Phoenix Return to the Oscars to Present The Final Awards at Oscars 2021

Renee Zellweger and Joaquin Phoenix, who won the top acting awards at last year’s Oscars, returned for the 2021 Academy Awards to bestow the awards on this year’s winners.

The Oscar-winning stars were the final two presenters of the evening during the event held at Union Station on Sunday night (April 25) in Los Angeles.

Renee was up fist and presented the Best Actress award to Frances McDormand for Nomadland. This marked her third acting win and her fourth overall Oscar win after winning Best Picture just minutes earlier.

Joaquin was the final presenter of the night and presented the Best Actor award to Anthony Hopkins for The Father. He wasn’t present at the awards show, so Joaquin accepted the award on his behalf.

FYI: Renee is wearing a custom Giorgio Armani Privé peony pink strapless silk gown with draped satin lapels at the neckline and a dramatic front slit, accented by a delicate crystal-embroidered trim. She completed her look with Jimmy Choo shoes and Cartier jewelry.

Renee Zellweger Will Restart A Golf Career In 'The Back Nine' Comedy

Renée Zellweger has lined up her next project, according to Deadline.

The site reports that the 51-year-old Oscar winner will be starring in The Back Nine, a comedy that will be directed by Michael Patrick King.

She’ll play Casey Jones, who gave up a golf career so that her husband could have one.

When she wakes up one morning to find her 25-year old marriage in free fall and her son off to college, she dusts off the clubs she tossed aside years ago in an effort to finally turn pro and redefine the “back nine” of her life.

Renee will also be an executive producer on the pic under Big Picture Co.

This isn’t the only project Renee has lined up. She’ll also be starring in a new NBC limited series!

You can next see Renee at the 2021 Oscars ceremony next weekend.

Renee Zellweger to Star in NBC True Crime Limited Series 'The Thing About Pam'!

Renee Zellweger is taking on a TV role for the first time.

The 51-year-old actress will star in and executive produce a limited series called The Thing About Pam at NBC with a six-episode straight to series order, Deadline reported Thursday (February 4).

The show is “based on the murder of Betsy Faria which resulted in her husband Russ’ conviction. He always insisted that he did not kill her, and his conviction was later overturned as the brutal crime set off a chain of events that would expose a diabolical scheme deeply involving Pam Hupp, a role that will be played by Zellweger.”

The series will be written by Jessika Borsiczky (House of Lies) who will serve as showrunner.

The Betsy Faria case was featured on several episodes of Dateline, and was the subject of NBC News’ popular 2019 Dateline podcast, The Thing About Pam, which remains one of the most downloaded podcasts on iTunes.

“As someone who hasn’t missed an episode of Dateline in 10 years, what immediately stood out to me about Pam from other true crime stories is that while on its surface it has all the twists and turns of a thrilling whodunit murder mystery, it’s really a character story at its heart that reflects in a profound way the American landscape back to us,” showrunner Jessika Borsiczky said.

It was recently revealed that one of Renee‘s most famous co-stars didn’t originally think she was right for a big role!

Hugh Grant Admits He Didn't Initially Didn't Think Renee Zellweger Was Right Fit for 'Bridget Jones's Diary'

Hugh Grant is looking back on Bridget Jones’s Diary 19 years later!

The 60-year-old actor took part in the new BBC Two documentary Being Bridget Jones where he chatted about Renee Zellweger being cast as the British lovesick thirtysomething, admitting that he wasn’t entirely convinced she was the right choice at first.

“There was a whole scandal about why isn’t this a British actress?” Hugh said, according to The Independent. “I didn’t know Renée Zellweger, and a Texan playing a British character, it did seem like a stretch.”

Hugh then went on to talk about the 51-year-old actress’ audition, saying it was “good” and that he found it “startling” because her accent sounded very familiar to Queen Elizabeth‘s sister Princess Margaret’s voice.

“She was told to kind of, well she thought she better loosen it up a bit,’” Hugh said, adding that a week later Renee‘s accent “was bang on.”

Earlier this month in another interview, Hugh said Renee is one of the few co-stars he still keeps in touch with.

Hugh Grant Still Talks to 'Bridget Jones' Co-Star Renee Zellweger: 'She's One of the Few Actresses I Haven't Fallen Out With'

Hugh Grant still stays in touch with his Bridget Jones co-star Renee Zellweger and says she’s one of the only female co-stars he still keeps in touch with regularly!

“I love Renée. Uh, she’s one of the few actresses I haven’t fallen out with,” Hugh said on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show. “And, we, we got on very well together and, we still exchange long emails.”

“Hers in particular, at least 70 pages each, interesting stuff, but quite hard to decipher and, she’s a properly good egg and a genius,” Hugh continued. “Did you see her Judy Garland? About as good as acting gets.”

The pair co-starred in Bridget Jones’ Diary back in 200 as well as the sequel, The Edge of Reason, in 2004. Renee starred in the third movie, Bridget Jones’ Baby back in 2016, but Hugh did not personally film additional scenes (though his character is involved!)
