Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana and Aziz Ansari will have to set their alarm clocks really early Thursday morning. The trio of stars were picked to announce the nominees for the Golden Globes.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hands out the Golden Globes, announced today that the event will be broadcast live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The stars will be joined by Sosie Bacon, who was named the 2014 Miss Golden Globes in November. She is the 21-year-old daughter of actors Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick.
The press conference will air live during the Today Show on NBC at 8:38 a.m. ET (5:38 a.m. PT). It will also be streamed online.
As for the glitzy Golden Globes ceremony itself, Tina Fey and Ansari’s Parks and Recreation co-star Amy Poehler will be hosting again. The 71st annual ceremony takes place on Jan. 12, with Woody Allen receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Since the Blue Jasmine director usually doesn’t attend award ceremonies, Diane Keaton will accept on his behalf.
In 2013, Wilde appeared in Drinking Buddies, Rush, Her and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, while Saldana was seen in Star Trek Into Darkness Ansari plays Tom Haverford on Parks & Rec.
