Larson is last year’s SAG winner for Best Film Actress in “Room,” so she is probably returning to reveal the winner for one of the two lead acting film categories this time. All of the others are nominated as part of their movie ensembles and are most likely lined up to introduce their respective film clips to the auditorium and home audiences.

Affleck and Hedges are ensemble nominees for “Manchester by the Sea” and nominated individually for Best Film Actor and Best Film Supporting Actor, respectively. Ali and Harris are also double nominees for ensemble and supporting work in “Moonlight.” Henson, Monae, and Spencer are part of the “Hidden Figures” cast nominations, with Spencer also picking up a supporting bid. Mortensen is nominated for his lead performance in “Captain Fantastic” and as part of the film’s ensemble.

The only other presenters announced so far are for Life Achievement Award recipient Lily Tomlin. Her “9 to 5” co-stars Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton will present the tribute to her.
