Awards season heats up this weekend with the 76th annual Golden Globes ceremony, and with that mind, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced two of its high-profile presenters will be previous winners Sam Rockwell and Jessica Chastain, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Last year, Rockwell dominated the Best Supporting Actor race and earned his first Golden Globe, and eventually an Oscar. His searing and complex portrayal of a small-town racist police officer in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” was unbeatable. He returns this year not only as a presenter but also a nominee in the same category — this time around for playing George W. Bush in Adam McKay’s divisive contender “Vice,” where plays opposite Christian Bale.
Chastain is also a Golden Globes veteran with five nominations and one win for her lead role in Kathryn Bigelow’s political thriller “Zero Dark Thirty.” The actress was most recently nominated in 2018 for her work in “Molly’s Game,” Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut.
This year’s telecast will be co-hosted by Sandra Oh, who is herself nominated for the critically acclaimed show “Killing Eve,” and Andy Samberg. Both performers have Golden Globes to their names for “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” respectively. Oh and Samberg were previously paired to present an award at the 2018 Emmys, showcasing great comedic chemistry. That banter will hopefully make Sunday’s gala one to remember.
THR also reports the hosts have chosen to take a non-political approach and keep the event lively and entertaining. This will mark Sandra Oh’s first time hosting an awards show of this magnitude. Samberg has been the MC for the Independent Spirit Awards, the MTV Movie Awards, and the Emmys.
