The Golden Globes Presenters Announced So Far Will Get You Even More Excited For The Show

Share

The only thing that gets me more excited for the Golden Globes than the actual award show itself is the days and weeks leading up to it when all of the Golden Globes presenters are announced. And, with just days to go, NBC is slowly beginning to announce who will stand on that enormous stage and hand out the awards to the deserving winners. And, trust me on this one, the list of the first round of presenters set to take the stage at the Golden Globes this year is going to get you even more excited for the show than you probably already are.

There are a few people we can definitely count on: Last year’s winners are always asked to return to the stage to present the award to this year’s recipient. But, there are a number of newcomers set to take the stage, and a number of friendly faces that haven’t been there in some time. Honestly, the lineup that has been announced so far is a veritable who’s who of Hollywood history.

Already there are a number of stars set to grace the Golden Globes stage, and these first presenters are getting me even more excited for the show than I already am.
