Phoenix, Erivo and ‘Barb and Star’ among the Globes presenters

LOS ANGELES (AP) – “Barb and Star” are on their way to the Golden Globes – actors Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo will be among the presenters at the upcoming ceremony.

The February 28 show will reunite several nominees and winners from the previous award season: Joaquin Phoenix, Cynthia Erivo and Renée Zellweger, and Awkwafina were also among the first presenters announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on Wednesday.

Wiig and Mumolo’s latest film, Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, was released last week and some are already calling the Campy film a cult classic. It comes 10 years after the couple’s hit “Bridesmaids”.

The globes will be bicoastal for the first time, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts. Fey will appear live in New York and Poehler in Beverly Hills, California.

Jane Fonda receives the Cecil B. DeMille Award, an award for film. She won Golden Globes for her acting “Klute”, “Julia” and “Coming Home”.

Norman Lear receives the Carol Burnett Award, a counterpart to the DeMille Award that focuses on lifetime television performance. The writer, director and producer is a six-time Golden Globe winner.

Netflix dominated the nominations earlier this month, with its film “Mank” and its television series “The Crown” being the leading nominees.
