WONDER WOMAN STAR Gal Gadot and actor Kerry Washington are two of the presenters announced for the Golden Globe Awards next month.

Gadot, Washington, comedian Amy Poehler and Kelly Clarkson will present awards at the 75th ceremony of the annual television and movie awards – at a time when the entertainment industry has been rocked repeatedly with accusations of sexual harassment and abuse.

Political commentator and comedian Seth Meyers has been announced as the ceremony’s host.

Following serious allegations against well-known producer Harvey Weinstein, prominent, award-winning actors Kevin Spacey and Dustin Hoffman, US politicians Roy Moore and Al Franken, and comedian Louis CK have also been accused of harassment.

In the wake of these allegations, some A-listers have said they will wear all-black as a silent protest against instances of harassment, bullying, or abuse in the film industry.

Reports from US entertainment sites have indicated that actors including Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep, and Emma Stone, as well as Dwayne Johnson, Tom Hiddleston and Armie Hammer will wear all-black at the Golden Globes next month.

Stylist Ilaria Urbinati posted to Instagram to say that her clients Hiddleston and Johnson would be among those taking part in the silent protest.

The Rock commented underneath Urbinanti’s post with the words “yes we will” – in an apparent confirmation that he would be taking part in the protest.
