Justin Timberlake will be among the three stars in charge of announcing the nominees of the 2010 event which is held on January 17.
The stars responsible to announce the nominees of 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards are Justin Timberlake, Diane Kruger and John Krasinski. These three will read out the contenders of next year's award show on December 15 as early as 5:30 A.M. PST.
There will be 25 categories read out during the announcement held at the Beverly Hilton. Timberlake, Kruger and Krasinski will be joined by Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Phillip Berk. The gala ceremony to hand the winners their statuettes meanwhile, will be held at the same place on January 17 and aired live by NBC. Ricky Gervais will serve as the host.
The selected nominees announcers usually have their latest work being nominated for the awards event. In Krasinski's case, "The Office" has been nominated for Best Comedy Series or Best Actor in Comedy in the past three years, and it is possible that the sitcom will take the same honor this time. Kruger starred in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" while Timberlake has been appearing in "Saturday Night Live" sketches this year.
