Jennifer Lawrence, Uma Thurman, Reese Witherspoon, Kevin Bacon, Robert Downey Jr, Julie Bowen, Laura Dern, Mila Kunis, Colin Farrell, and Jimmy Fallon will be among those presenting the accolades to this year’s winners.

Lawrence is a nominee herself this year for her supporting role in American Hustle, which leads the nominations list alongside 12 Years a Slave, with both films in the running in no less than seven categories each.
