Boston stars are set to take over the 2017 Golden Globes on Sunday night.
According to Us Weekly, actor and director Ben Affleck has been added to the list of high-profile presenters, which also happens to include his best bud Matt Damon. Although Ben and Matt aren’t nominated for their onscreen work this year, we’re guessing they’re rooting for Casey Affleck and Manchester by the Sea to win big, as the Bay State film is nominated in five categories.
In addition to the Good Will Hunting duo, Quantico actress and Newton North alum Priyanka Chopra as well as Maine native Anna Kendrick will grace the stage as presenters this weekend. Other stars who’ll be giving out awards include Miss Sloane actress Jessica Chastain, Amy Schumer, Drew Barrymore, Nicole Kidman, Viola Davis, and Sofia Vergara.
Hosted by the Tonight Show‘s Jimmy Fallon, the 2017 Golden Globe Awards ceremony will also feature Meryl Streep as this year’s recipient of the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award.
The 74rd Annual Golden Globe Awards will air live on NBC Sunday, January 8, at 8 p.m.
