The biggest Hollywood stars at the Golden Globe Awards

Film awards will be presented on January 10.

The 80th Golden Globe Awards presenters have been confirmed by the Hollywood Press Association (HFPA).

Among those on this list are Ana de Armas, who was nominated for her role as Marilyn Monroe in the film "Blonde," Jamie Lee Curtis, and Quentin Tarantino.

According to "Variety," the attendance of actor Austin Butler, who excelled in the role of the king of rock and roll in the film "Elvis," and most likely Daniel Craig, is also expected at the ceremony, who is best known for his performance as a gay investigator in the sequel to "Knife in the Back".

Brendan Fraser, who was nominated for his work in the film "The Whale," had previously stated that he would not be attending the ceremony.

- My mother did not raise a hypocrite. You can call me for a lot of things, but not for that - said Fraser, who claims that no one has apologized to him after he experienced sexual abuse by one of the members (HFPA).

As already announced, the controversial comedian Jarrod Carmichael will host the Golden Globes, while Eddie Murphy will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award this year.

The three-hour Golden Globe Awards presentation, which many regards as a precursor to the Oscars, will take place on January 10 at the Beverly Hilton.

Let us recall that last year's Globes ceremony was a low-key affair with no telecast.

Meanwhile, the organization has been accused of a variety of offenses, including bigotry.

According to media sources, the HFPA reorganized completely and restocked its ranks with new members to ensure racial and ethnic diversity.

The HFPA is now led by Todd Boeli, whose company "Eldridge Industries" purchased the "Globes" and converted them from a non-profit to a for-profit venture.

As a result, the NBC network agreed to air the eightieth award on its channel.

A story published in the Los Angeles Times in February of last year disclosed a number of contested facts about the HFPA that had long been suspected in Hollywood, sparking the cascade of controversies.

The unethical behavior was revealed in a lawsuit filed against the organization in 2020 by Norwegian journalist Kjersti Fla after her application for membership was denied.

Fla accused the HFPA of "institutionalizing a culture of corruption," claiming that the tax-exempt group acts like a cartel, discriminating against eligible applicants and monopolizing critical media access.

Many things have obviously changed this year, but we'll see on January 10 if that's enough to restore the Golden Globes' former glory.
