Kidman Listed Among New SAG Awards Presenters

SAG loves to trickle its announcements in slowly, and who can blame them? It keeps them in the discussion after all. So after kidmanannouncing the first wave of presenters yesterday, they have announced a few more names today. Nicole Kidman, Jeff Daniels, Neil Patrick Harris, Julianna Margulies, and Busy Phillips, along with SAG-AFTRA Co-Presidents Ken Howard and Roberta Reardon have been chosen to present at the ceremony. I’m sure we’ll have some more names tomorrow, and then Oscar will do the same thing and make us bloggers work overtime keeping up. See the official release after the jump.

LOS ANGELES (January 17, 2013) — Jeff Daniels, Neil Patrick Harris, Nicole Kidman, Julianna Margulies, Busy Philipps and SAG-AFTRA Co-Presidents Ken Howard and Roberta Reardon will be presenters at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, Executive Producer Jeff Margolis announced today.

They join a growing roster of actors who will honor their colleagues at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards that already includes Alec Baldwin, Bradley Cooper, Viola Davis, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Carl Reiner, Justin Timberlake and Sigourney Weaver.

For his TV work in “The Newsroom,” this year Jeff Daniels has been honored with his third SAG Award nomination. On the big screen, he was recently seen in the futuristic action film “Looper” with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.

Neil Patrick Harris has played the womanizing Barney Stinson in the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” since 2005. He has also been a popular host of the Tony®, Primetime Emmy® and TV Land Awards. Later this year, he will reprise roles in a pair of family-friendly big-screen sequels: “The Smurfs 2” and the animated “Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers.”

SAG Awards nominee Nicole Kidman has been nominated for seven Actor® statuettes — including two this year for her roles in “Hemingway & Gellhorn” and “The Paperboy.” She will next be seen in the thriller “Stoker” with Matthew Goode and Mia Wasikowska. She just finished production on “The Railway Man” with Colin Firth and is currently filming the title role in “Grace of Monaco,” opposite Tim Roth.

With eight Actor® statuettes to her credit, Julianna Margulies holds the record for the most SAG Awards. She’s nominated again this year, for her role as Alicia Florrick in the CBS drama “The Good Wife.” On the big screen, she will next be seen opposite Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin in “Stand Up Guys.”

Busy Philipps is this year’s SAG Awards’ social media ambassador. In the weeks leading up to the show, through posts on Twitter and Facebook, the star of TBS’s “Cougar Town” has been giving fans access to behind-the-scenes moments, including updates on the production, presenters and fashion. In addition to “Cougar Town,” Philipps’ numerous TV credits include “Freaks and Geeks,” “Dawson’s Creek” and “ER.” Her next big-screen role will be opposite Brendan Fraser and Peter Dinklage in “A Case of You,” due for release in 2013.

The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, one of the awards season’s premier events, will be simulcast live coast-to-coast on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013, at 8 p.m. (ET)/5 p.m. (PT) from the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles. An encore primetime telecast will begin immediately following on TNT at 10 p.m. (ET)/7 p.m. (PT). The ceremony will also be telecast internationally, as well as to U.S. military installations overseas through the American Forces Network Broadcast Center.

Recipients of the honors for Outstanding Action Performances by Film and Television Stunt Ensembles announced at 6:15 p.m. (ET)/3:15 p.m. (PT) during the red carpet pre-show webcast on, and which begins at 6 p.m. (ET)/3 p.m. (PT).

Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
