Priyanka Chopra will present an award at Monday morning’s 69th Emmys, a list released by Entertainment Weekly says. She will join Big Little Lies stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and other stars such as Matt Bomer, Gina Rodriguez and Sarah Paulson as presenters at the annual TV awards.

While Priyanka hasn’t been nominated in any category at the 2017 awards, she has been a regular fixture at most ceremonies, including the 2016 show, where she arrived in a striking red dress and twirled onstage with Tom Hiddleston.

Her performance on her show, Quantico - which is about to enter its third season - has fetched her two People’s Choice Awards.

Other presenters include Mark Feuerstein (Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later), Jermaine Fowler (Superior Donuts), Chris Hardwick (Talking Dead), Kaitlin Olson (The Mick), Jeremy Piven (Wisdom of the Crowd), Craig Robinson (Ghosted), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), Anika Noni Rose (The Quad), and Gabrielle Union (Being Mary Jane).

The Emmys will be telecast live on CBS in the US. The show, to be held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, will be hosted by Stephen Colbert. Transparent, Big Little Lies, The Handmaid’s Tale and This is Us are considered to be the front-runners in major categories.
