This year’s Golden Globes ceremony will feature an appearance by Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, who will deliver a “special message of peace” to a fawning audience of Hollywood elites.
Actor Sean Penn will introduce Zelensky during the live telecast.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association did not say in its announcement if Zelensky would appear in person at the Golden Globes or will address viewers remotely.
“Also participating in the telecast is Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy [sic], offering a special message of peace which will be introduced by Sean Penn,” the group said.
Zelensky, a Hollywood favorite, was visited by Penn in Ukraine to show his support for the president.
Other stars cozying up to Zelensky include Jessica Chastain, Ben Stiller, and Liev Schreiber.
Penn met with Zelensky in 2022 while he was shooting a documentary.
He later loaned Zelensky one of his Oscars until Ukraine won its war with Russia.
Zelensky also received a hero’s welcome before Congress, with then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) comparing him to Winston Churchill.
Over $110 billion in aid that Congress has approved to send to Ukraine could have built a complete wall along the entirety of the U.S.-Mexico border multiple times over, a Breitbart News analysis found.
The 80th Golden Globe Awards will air live on NBC Tuesday starting at 8 p.m. ET.
