BREAKING NEWS–Johnny Depp to appear as a presenter at the Golden Globes on Sunday night!

Here’s a story we’ve been waiting for: The Hollywood Foreign Press Association confirms that Johnny Depp will present an award at this year’s Golden Globe Awards. The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards will take place at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday night, January 11, and will be telecast live on NBC from 8-11 p.m. Eastern time. Johnny Depp won the Golden Globe as Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical last year for his role as Sweeney Todd in Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (which won Best Picture, Comedy or Musical), but due to the writers’ strike, the HFPA held a dull news conference to announce the winners rather than the usual awards ceremony. A celebration is long overdue, and we will be delighted to see JD arrive at the podium as a Golden Globe winner.
