Davis received a best actress nomination this year for her role as brilliant Professor Keating in ABC’s “How to Get Away With Murder.” In 2015, the actress won an Emmy for the performance. Davis is also recognized for her Oscar-nominated performances in “Doubt” (2008) and “The Help” (2011).
Keaton’s latest film, “Spotlight,” a true story about Boston Globe investigative journalists who uncover a massive scandal within the Catholic Church, received a Golden Globe nod this year for best drama. The actor picked up a 2015 Golden Globe for his lead role as has-been actor Riggan Thomson in “Birdman.” He also earned a best actor Oscar nomination for the performance.
Davis and Keaton will join previously announced presenters including 2016 best actor nominee Eddie Redmayne, Olivia Wilde, J.K. Simmons, Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore and Mel Gibson — a repeated target of returning awards show host Ricky Gervais.
The Golden Globes will broadcast live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 10.
