There has been no word as to whether or not any of the Black Panther actors will be presenting together, though fans would surely love to see a Wakandan reunion unfold on stage. "Everyone is depressed, and maybe that's as good a reason as any that everyone could use a little time to laugh and celebrate".

Harrison Ford, Lupita Nyong'o, Gary Oldman, Sam Rockwell, and Halle Berry are among the stars set to present awards at the 76th annual Golden Globes Awards telecast on January 6.

After a record $41.7 billion global movie box-office in 2018, crowd-pleasers like "A Star is Born", "Black Panther", "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Mary Poppins Returns" are competing for Golden Globe honors. The show will be hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg.

The hosting duo interviewed each other for a lead-up piece to Sunday's show for The Hollywood Reporter.

The "Killing Eve" star, who made history a year ago as the first Asian woman nominated for the Emmy award for best actress in a drama series, has long spoken out about the importance of diversity and representation in Hollywood, and the paucity of roles for Asian actors. "They are looking forward to the fun of the Globes", Gray added.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama is one of the few categories that seems like a done deal, with Christian Bale's (Vice) transformative performance as Cheney all but certain to pick him up a Globe, while Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) is also thought to have the best shot in Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.

Bradley Cooper's A Star Is Born continues to be the one to beat in the Best Picture race, with five total Golden Globe nominations, including Best Picture (Drama). Halle Berry is a four-time Golden Globes nominee, having won best performance by an actress in a miniseries or motion picture made for television for "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge" in 2000.
