Film Independent has provided HitFix with the first series of presenters this year and they are all independent film or TV veterans.
“Mad Men” star Elisabeth Moss received kudos at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival for her performances in “The One I Love” and “Listen Up Philip.”
Sarah Paulson is the officially unrecognized member of the “12 Years A Slave” ensemble and is known for her roles in films such as “Mud,” “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and on FX’s hit TV series “American Horror Story.”
Fred Armisen is best known for his work on “Saturday Night Live” and his “independent” TV series “Portlandia” on IFC (which is also the network for the Spirit Awards).
Kathryn Hahn has an impressive film resume including independent standouts such as “Afternoon Delight” and “Revolutionary Road” as well as studio fare including “We’re The Millers,” “Wanderlust” and “Step Brothers.” She has a major role in “Bad Words” opening later this spring.
Last, but certainly not least, the legendary Gong Li will also appear as a presenter. Li is best known for her collaborations with Zhang Yimou on films such as “Raise the Red Lantern” and “Ju Dou,” but has a number of English-language credits such as “Memoirs of a Geisha” and “Miami Vice.” She recently wrapped another Zimou film, “Return,” which is expected later this year.

Elisabeth Moss just flipped off our Golden Globes’ mani cam. On live TV.
And it was amazing. Here’s how it went down:
Elisabeth, after Giuliana Rancic asked the nominee if she wanted to do the mani cam: “I did this last time. There’s something I wanted to do last time, but I’m not going to do it.
Giuliana: “Do it! C’mon, do it! This is E! We’re in 160 countries!”
