Oscars 2015: Margot Robbie, Miles Teller to host sci-tech awards

Margot Robbie and Miles Teller will hand out this year's sci-tech Academy Awards

The presentation of this year's Oscars for scientific and technical achievement will boast some superhero star power.

Margot Robbie, who's set to play antiheroine Harley Quinn in the upcoming "Suicide Squad," and Miles Teller, a.k.a. stretchy scientist Reed Richards in "Fantastic Four," will host the Feb. 7 ceremony, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Wednesday.

The pair will present 21 awards to 58 individual recipients during the evening event, portions of which will be included in the Oscars telecast Feb. 22.

"Margot and Miles represent some of the best of the next generation of rising stars and it is only fitting that they host an evening saluting the film innovations and innovators who will inform the future," Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement.

Neither Robbie nor Teller has been nominated for an Oscar, but both have appeared in films nominated for best picture: Robbie in "The Wolf of Wall Street" and Teller in "Whiplash."
