Oscar Watch: Justin Timberlake will wake up early for the Golden Globes
The nominations for the 67th Annual Golden Globes are less than a day away and the HFPA has announced which three stars will rise up to reveal this year's contenders. And what a pretty trio they are.
Justin Timberlake, John Krasinkski and Diane Kruger will all be bright eyed and peppy to announce the nominations from the Beverly Hilton beginning at 8 AM ET, 5 PM PT on the morning show or news network of your choice. None of the three have been Golden Globe nominees in the past, but that won't stop them from giving some love to the HFPA in hopes of future returns.
For music superstar Timberlake it's the sort of publicity appearance that makes you wonder "Is he really serious about not doing a new album anytime soon?" Timberlake is currently playing Sean Parker, the founder of Napster, in David Fincher's new drama about the founding of Facebook, "The Social Network." Considering how much time he's given to his acting career the past few years, could he be contemplating focusing entirely on his thespian efforts? If he takes any time to talk to the press on Tuesday morning, we'll try and find out.
Look for comprehensive Golden Globe Nominations coverage beginning at 8 AM ET/ 5 PM PT Tuesday on HitFix.
The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards themselves will be hosted by Ricky Gervais and broadcast live coast to coast Sunday, January 17 on NBC (5 to 8 pm PT, 8 to 11 pm ET) from - wait for it -- The Beverly Hilton.
In other Globes news, Mavis Spencer has been selected as this year's Miss Golden Globe. The 18-year-old is the daughter of Globe winner Alfred Woodward and writer/producer Roderick Spencer and will spend the night passing out those kitchy little Globes statues. Spencer, who will attend Columbia University next fall, is an aspiring model, actress and, according to the HFPA, has an "illustrious career in Equestrienne Show Jumping." Previous Miss Golden Globes include Laura Dern, Joley Fisher, Rumer Willis and Melanie Griffith.
