Presenting the awards are some of most highly regarded A-list actors in Hollywood, such as Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Emily Blunt, Natalie Portman, Mel Gibson or Denzel Washington.

More importantly, honorees are truly the stars of the show, for example Justin Hurwitz, composer of La La Land, or Barry Jenkins, producer of Oscar-winner Moonlight, and present remarkable films such as Arrival, The Grand Budapest Hotel, or Dallas Buyers Club.
