Awards season is in full swing. With the Golden Globes and People’s Choice awards behind us and the Academy Awards on the horizon, Hollywood’s elite are all on their best behavior leading up to the next big night in show business – the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG).
On Sunday, Jan. 21, the Guild will give some of its very talented nominees prestigious awards for acting. While the recipients are always the stars of the night, the main focus of the televised event often goes to the presenters – and the SAG Awards are no exception.
According to US Magazine, Laverne Cox, Benedict Cumberbatch and Viola Davis will be doing double duty as both nominees for awards and presenters. Cumberbatch is up for his roles in the TV series “Sherlock” and in the hit film “The Imitation Game.” Meanwhile, Cox and her “Orange is the New Black” co-stars are up for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. Davis, from ABC's "How to Get Away With Murder," is up for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series.
The trio make up just a few of the celebrities that will present at the 2015 show, including previously announced stars such as Matthew McConaughey, Matt McGorry and Edward Norton. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star Carrie Fisher will reportedly be there as well to present a lifetime achievement award to her mother, Debbie Reynolds.
The SAG Awards airs Sunday, Jan 21, at 8 p.m. EST on TBS and TNT. Ahead of the live shows, film and TV fans can have a look at the full list of presenters below:
