Matthew Morrison, Julianna Margulies in first wave of Emmy presenters
Drama lead actress competitors Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife") and January Jones ("Mad Men") will present awards, as will actors from two of the leading comedy nominees: Matthew Morrison of "Glee" and Sofia Vergara from "Modern Family."
They'll be joined on stage by Ricky Gervais -- whose "Ricky Gervais Show" is up for best animated program -- and "The Office" star John Krasinski.
Saturday's (Aug. 21) Creative Arts ceremony will also have its share of star power. The honors for behind-the-scenes work will feature showrunners and actors from several shows presenting awards in tandem.
Among the presenting pairs are Rico Rodriguez and Steven Levitan of "Modern Family," Elizabeth Mitchell and Damon Lindelof of "Lost," Jane Lynch and Ryan Murphy of "Glee," Christina Hendricks and Matthew Weiner of "Mad Men," John Lithgow and Clyde Phillips of "Dexter" and a pair of "Saturday Night Live" writer-performers, Seth Meyers and Andy Samberg.
The Primetime Emmys air Sunday, Aug. 29 on NBC.
