The Golden Globe Awards are preparing for a big comeback with the presence of movie and TV stars (Exclusive)

UpdateDirector SS Rajamouli and stars NT Rama Rao Jr. will be attending. and Ram Charan at the 2023 Golden Globes. For the two actors, it will be their first visit to the US in support of the film.

The Golden Globes is on its way to a celebrity-packed comeback, as the list of nominees who are scheduled to attend the January 10 ceremony is growing by the day.

After facing a nearly two-year boycott in the wake of criticism about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lack of diversity among its members and complaints of unethical business practices, The Globes is seeking to re-establish itself as one of Hollywood’s premier award ceremonies.

As of Thursday morning, I can exclusively reveal that the 80th Globes film nominees expected to attend include Austin Butler (“Elvis”); the Fablemans team of Steven Spielberg, Michelle Williams, and Tony Kushner; Ana de Armas (“Blonde”), Jamie Lee Curtis (“Everything Everywhere at Once”), and most likely Daniel Craig (“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery”).

There’s still no word on whether “Babylon” stars Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, and Julia Roberts (“Gaslit”) are planning to attend the ceremony.

Sources say Brendan Gleeson (“The Banshees of Inisherin”) is still waiting to hear if he can get time away from filming the “Joker: Folie à Deux” sequel to attend. The team behind the animated film “Turning Red” nominee, including director Domee Shi, as well as “Decision to Leave” director Park Chan-wook, whose film was selected for best film in a language other than English, are expected to attend.

Other directors hitting the red carpet include Rian Johnson (“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery”), James Cameron (“Avatar: The Way of Water”), Guillermo del Toro (“Pinocchio”) and Lukas Dhont (“Close”) ).

Baz Luhrmann is likely to attend after his Jan. 8 appearance with Butler at the “Elvis” gala hosted by Warners and New Line directors Pam Abdi and Michael De Luca in Formosa.

On the TV front, confirmed attendees included Kevin Costner (“Yellowstone”), Sherrill Lee Ralph (“Abbott Elementary”), double-nominee Julia Garner (“Ozark” and “Anna’s Creation”), and Nessi Nash (“Dahmer-Beast: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story”) and Elizabeth Debicki (“The Crown”) and “Hacks” co-star Jan Smart, Hannah Einpender, Gina Ortega (“Wednesday”), Kaley Cuoco (“Flight Stewardess”), Jessica Chastain (“George & Tammy”) and Jeremy Allen White (“Bear.”) Andrew Garfield (“Under the Banner of Heaven”) is also likely to come, as are “All Quiet on the Western Front” stars Felix Kammerer and Daniel Brühl.

The “Only Murders in the Building” trio Selena Gomez, Steve Martin, and Martin Short may have recently begun filming the third season of the Hulu comedy in New York City. Same goes for Quinta Brunson, who is currently filming Abbott Elementary.

Since the HFPA has come under fire, the organization has added many journalists of color to its ranks and promised to embrace new and improved processes.

“We want Globes to succeed,” said one publicist on Tuesday. “I think you will see a strong presence at the fair this year.”

“Whale” star Brendan Fraser is the only candidate who has publicly stated that he will not attend due to his previous experience with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. In an interview with GQ magazine, before the nominations were announced, Fraser announced that he was boycotting The Globes over his accusation that Philip Burke, former president and member of the HFPA, had groped him at a 2003 lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel. After Burke denied the accusation, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said no action would be taken because they believed Burke’s actions were a prank rather than sex promotion.

“No, I’m not going to participate… It’s because of the history I have with them,” Fraser told GQ. “And my mother did not raise a hypocrite. You can call me many things, but not this one.”

Even though the box office hit “Top Gun: Maverick” was picked for Best Picture, Tom Cruise is unlikely to join the festivities after the actor returned three Globes to the HFPA amid controversy.

There won’t be any other attendees, but not because of the issues surrounding the HFPA. Hugh Jackman (“The Son”) will be in New York, starring on Broadway in “The Music Man.” John Lithgow (“Old Man”) is filming in Europe, and Diego Luna (“Andor”) is likely sitting overseas as he’s producing the second season of the “Star Wars” series.

Emmy Award Winner Jerrod Carmichael will host Emmy Award Winner Jerrod Carmichael. The evening will include tributes to Ryan Murphy, who will receive his fourth Carol Burnett Award, and Eddie Murphy, who will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Dick Clark Productions and Jesse Collins Entertainment will produce in association with the HFPA, with Collins and Dionne Harmon as executive producers.

HFPA has not yet announced the sponsors for the ceremony.
