'Squid Game' stars to present prize at Critics Choice Awards
The stars of Netflix’s smash-hit dystopian series “Squid Game” will serve as presenters at the upcoming Critics Choice Awards, the Critics Choice Association (CCA) announced Friday.
Actors Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo and Hoyeon (whose real name is Jung Ho-yeon) have made the lineup, the CCA said through its website.
Other star-studded presenters include celebrities Serena Williams, Joel McHale, Ken Jeong and Dylan O’Brien.
The CCA previously announced in December that “Squid Game” earned nominations for three categories: Best Drama Series, Best Actor in a Drama Series (for Lee) and Best Foreign Language Series.
The agencies for all three “Squid Game” actors have confirmed that they have or will depart to the U.S. to participate in the ceremony.
The 27th edition of the awards ceremony is slated for March 13 and will be simulcast on U.S. cable channels The CW and TBS.
