The 2017 Emmys ceremony is getting more Big Little liars, comics, past winners, and all-around star power for the ongoing list of awards presenters.
Alexis Bledel (The Handmaid’s Tale), Dave Chappelle (Saturday Night Live), James Corden (The Late Late Show), Melissa McCarthy (Saturday Night Live), Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy), and Gerald McRaney (This Is Us) already won various Emmys when the Creative Arts awards were announced last weekend. Now, they’ll return to the main stage to present various statuettes during this Sunday’s ceremony.
Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Adam Scott, who were already announced as presenters, will be joined by more of their Big Little Lies cast members: Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Zoë Kravitz. Rachel Bloom, LL Cool J, Cicely Tyson, and BD Wong, all nominated in various categories at the Emmys, were added to the mix as well.
Other noteworthy names include Emmy darling Viola Davis, Grace & Frankie‘s Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, Late Night host Seth Meyers, Dolly Parton, The Last Tycoon‘s Matt Bomer, The Walking Dead baddie-with-a-baseball-bat Jeffrey Dean Morgan, The Walking Dead alum turned Star Trek: Discovery lead Sonequa Martin-Green, American Horror Story‘s Sarah Paulson, Insecure‘s Issa Rae, Shameless‘ Emmy Rossum, and the legendary Carol Burnett and Norman Lear.
And if you’re still not over the cancellation of Orphan Black, Tatiana Maslany will be on hand to present.
The list is rounded out by Young Sheldon himself (and another Big Little Liars alum) Iain Armitage, Priyanka Chopra (Quantico), Mark Feuerstein (Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later), Jermaine Fowler (Superior Donuts), Chris Hardwick (Talking Dead), Kaitlin Olson (The Mick), Jeremy Piven (Wisdom of the Crowd), Craig Robinson (Ghosted), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), Anika Noni Rose (The Quad), and Gabrielle Union (Being Mary Jane).
