Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne are among the presenters at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

The British actors - who are both up for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role - will be handing out prizes at the ceremony on Sunday (26.01.14) along with J.K. Simmons and Viola Davis, E! News reports.

Other presenters on the big night include Laverne Cox, Bryan Cranston, Adrien Brody, Felicity Jones, Lenny Kravitz, Eric Dane and Tony Revolori.

Benedict - who is also nominated for the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for 'Sherlock: His Last Vow' - recently said he is thrilled to be in line for the prestigious awards.

He shared last month: "I'm over the moon. And so delighted to receive recognition in such esteemed company for both 'Sherlock' and 'The Imitation Game' by my acting peers.

"What an amazing early Christmas present! Thank you to all who voted and watched both pieces of work."

'Birdman' leads the way in the movie honours, with nods in four categories, while in the TV accolades, 'Modern Family' leads the way with four nominations, and 'Boardwalk Empire', 'House of Cards', 'Homeland' and 'Game of Thrones' each scored three nods.
