It’s almost time! The first group of 2020 Golden Globes presenters has been announced just ahead of the award show’s live broadcast on NBC this Sunday. For the fifth year running, comedian Ricky Gervais will emcee the ceremony — and he’ll be in good company onstage. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed the first round of presenters on Thursday, with the group comprising a ton of star power.
While the full list of presenters won’t be made available until Friday, enough have been released to suggest the 77th Golden Globe Awards ceremony will be heavy on A-listers. The official Golden Globe Twitter account began leaking the names throughout the day on Thursday, starting with Ana de Armas, Pierce Brosnan and Tim Allen, followed by Margot Robbie, Harvey Keitel, Salma Hayek, Amy Poehler, Rami Malek, Scarlett Johansson, Dakota Fanning and Chris Evans. Later in the day, a large group dropped: Charlize Theron, Tiffany Haddish, Kate McKinnon, Will Ferrell, Octavia Spencer, Sofia Vergara, Kerry Washington, Ted Danson, Daniel Craig and Glenn Close.
The final five presenters announced (so far) on Thursday were Nick Jonas and Ansel Elgort. Moments after that revelation, the Golden Globes announced this year’s official Globes Red Carpet pre-show hosts: Sofia Carson, AJ Gibson, Jeannie Mai and Scott Mantz.

In addition to the entertainers who are up for Golden Globe awards, two special awards will be handed out during the ceremony. The Cecil B. DeMille award, which is given for “outstanding contributions” in the world of film, will go to Tom Hanks. Previous winners include Oprah (2018), Meryl Streep (2017), Denzel Washington (2016) and George Clooney (2015).
Ellen DeGeneres will go home with the Carol Burnett Award, which is effectively a lifetime achievement award for television. Last year, Carol Burnett herself “won” the first-ever Carol Burnett Award — and it was a pretty epic moment. However, something tells us that DeGeneres will do Burnett proud as the first follow-up recipient of the honor.
The 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony will air live on NBC Sunday, Jan. 5 starting at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.
