Brad Pitt is reportedly in talks to present an important award at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

The Hollywood superstar's movie The Big Short is up for the best motion picture, musical or comedy award on the night and his co-stars Steve Carell and Christian Bale are also nominated. While Brad didn't receive any acting nods, New York Post's Page Six claims he is planning to give away one of the night's top honours.

This proposal was reportedly discussed earlier this week, but the actor still needs to secure transportation in order to arrive in Beverly Hills on time. If he does attend, a source points out to the publication that he does have reason to take to the stage if The Big Short scoops the prize.

“Brad is a nominee - he’s a producer of The Big Short - so he will be there on behalf of the film," they said.

Other big names set to present accolades on Sunday include Amy Adams, Channing Tatum, Jim Carrey and Eddie Redmayne, whose role in The Danish Girl has earned him a nomination.

British funnyman Ricky Gervais will be hosting the ceremony once more, despite previously claiming he'd never take on the task again. Speaking to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in an episode that aired on Wednesday (06Jan16), Ricky revealed what's in store this time round.

"They said I could say what I want again," he winked. "Yeah (I say whatever comes to mind). That’s the fun of it really, because sometimes I don’t know what’s going to happen. So that’s good.

"If I didn’t drink, I wouldn’t be brave enough to say some of the things I’m going to say."

He was also asked to name three emotions he feels when hosting the prestigious event, with his choices fear, joy and shame.
