Sixteen years after Matt Damon and Ben Affleck first won their Golden Globes, for co-writing “Good Will Hunting,” the two stars will again take the stage — this time separately, as presenters.

Damon and Affleck join previously announced presenters Kevin Bacon, Julie Bowen, Robert Downey Jr., Jimmy Fallon, Colin Farrell, Tom Hanks, Chris Hemsworth, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence, Melissa McCarthy, Uma Thurman and Reese Witherspoon, among others.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, whose hosting efforts were well received last year, will reprise their duties at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. show. It will be broadcast live beginning at 5 p.m. Sunday on NBC.
