Well, this was a pleasant surprise!

Tennis superstar Serena Williams isn't an actress, but she sure looked the part when she hit the stage at the 91st Annual Academy Awards to present A Star Is Born.

The hot mom - slaying in a strapless Armani gown - was invited to introduce and share reflections on the Best Picture-nominated movies. She talked about having dreams and accomplishing them. And who better to represent go-getters.

Peep Serena presenting below:

Likely the best introduction of the night, If Beale Street Could Talk actor Brian Tyree Henry joined forces with actress Melissa McCartney. The comedic duo was decked out in costumes - Brian dressed in a Mary Poppins Returns-inspired look and Melissa in a Mary Queen of Scots‘ Margot Robbie-inspired costume - to present the Best Costume Design award.

Dressed in a black tuxedo ensemble with a 10-foot train custom made by Pamella Roland, J-Hud belted out the lyrics to "I'll Fight," written by Diane Warren. It was a fitting tribute to the sitting U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "I'll Fight" was nominated for Best Original Song.
