Pop star Lady Gaga and actress Lena Headey (“Game of Thrones“) are among the latest presenters announced for Sunday’s Emmy Awards ceremony. Gaga, who was a first-time Emmy nominee at last Saturday’s Creative Arts ceremony for the variety special “Cheek to Cheek,” is currently filming “American Horror Story: Hotel.” And Headey is the frontrunner to win Best Drama Supporting Actress with her second bid.
At a red carpet media event on Wednesday, Emmycast producer Don Mischer announced those names plus four more: Emmy winners Tina Fey (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt“) and Jane Lynch (“Hollywood Game Night“) plus past nominees Marcia Gay Harden (“Code Black”) and John Stamos (“Grandfathered”).
