Ready to see all of your favorite A-list actors hit the stage for a night of awards? It is that time of year again, and the 71st annual Golden Globes are just around the corner. Now, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced the first group of the presenters for the show, airing January 12.
Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. and Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence are both presenting, along with other big names like Kevin Bacon, Uma Thurman, Mila Kunis, Laura Dern, Jimmy Fallon, Colin Farrell and Reese Witherspoon.
Most of the actors presenting have known their fair share of Golden Globe success already; Robert, Kevin, Uma, Laura, Colin and Reese have all won a Golden Globe award in the past.
Mila Kunis was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe for her role in Black Swan, and starlet Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress for her knockout performance in Silver Linings Playbook.
This year, Jen is up for Best Supporting Actress for her role as a neurotic housewife in American Hustle, and she has some steep competition. The amazing Julia Roberts is up for the same award for her role in August: Osage County. Meryl Streep was nominated for Best Actress for her role in the film, as well.
After wowing fans and bringing ratings up 17 percent for the 2013 awards show, comedy duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to host this year’s Golden Globes.
The pair suggested to The Hollywood Reporter an extension on the popular Golden Globes drinking game the two created last year. Tina says, “Any time you see a gown with sleeves, you’re going to drink. Any time they cut to Tom hanks for a reaction shot, do five push-ups and you will be ripped by the end of the ceremony.” Well, that’s one way to get fit while having fun!
With all that talent on stage, not to mention the award-winners, this is one awards show to watch. The Golden Globes air live on NBC from the Beverly Hilton on Sunday, January 12.
