Past champs Halle Berry, Jamie Lee Curtis and Dick Van Dyke are among the newest presenters announced for the 2019 Golden Globes ceremony slated for this Sunday. They are among 13 people announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on Thursday. That full list also includes Idris Elba, Harrison Ford, Justin Hartley, Felicity Huffman, Michael B. Jordan, Chrissy Metz, Mike Myers, Ben Stiller, Lena Waithe and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Wednesday’s social media push for the NBC event also included the following 13 people added to the presenter roster, including four of last year’s Golden Globe winners — Gary Oldman, Saoirse Ronan, Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney. Others added yesterday included Chadwick Boseman, Sterling K. Brown, Taraji P. Henson, William H. Macy, Lupita Nyong’o, Octavia Spencer plus Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons (from the final season of “The Big Bang Theory”). That brings the current total to 26 stars opening envelopes and introducing clips, with quite a few more expected to be added over the next two days.
The 76th annual ceremony will be live this Sunday, January 6, on NBC at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) and is hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg. There will be two special presentations during the ceremony. Jeff Bridges is receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for life achievement in film. Carol Burnett is receiving a life achievement award for television, which will be named after her for all future recipients.
More presenters will be added over the next few days. No word yet on the other film acting winners from last year’s ceremony — Frances McDormand and James Franco — and whether they will be returning as presenters.
Our Gold Derby odds are predicting tight races in the film acting races of Glenn Close (“The Wife”) vs. Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”), Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) vs. Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”), Emily Blunt (“Mary Poppins Returns”) vs. Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”) and Christian Bale (“Vice”) vs. Viggo Mortensen (“Green Book”).
