The annual ceremony, which takes place on March 3 – just a day before the Oscars – is often snubbed by the A-listers.
However, at least some have a sense of humour and have attended in previous years.
In 2009 Sandra Bullock accepted the Worst Actress award for All About Steve, ironically the night before winning the Best Actress Oscar for the Blind Side, while Halle Berry also turned up to collect her gong for Catwoman in 2005.
Meryl Streep has spoken of her affinity for journalists – after starring in new political thriller The Post.

“I certainly have been supportive of the Committee to Protect Journalists, I think the organisations that do specifically protect journalists whose lives are in danger are really important,” says the 68-year-old.
“But supporting journalists, all of whom – in my opinion – are underpaid for the service they do… yes, we all have to support them and to call out the attempts by powerful interests to control their work and to de-legitimise the organisations that give them work.

Sir Elton John’s struggle to deal with the trappings of fame is what he believes to be the biggest factor in his substance abuse.
The 70-year-old has previously admitted to losing a big part of his life to drink and drugs, before eventually knocking alcohol and cocaine on the head in 1990, and he now says: “Fame, which at first sight looks like a blessing, soon revealed itself as also a curse. My essential humanity began to dissolve into an excess of drugs and alcohol. I am afraid I reacted very badly. I became a loathsome person – selfish, self-centred and disconnected. That amounts to a painful second lesson, one I learnt by doing it all wrong.”
Although it’s one of her fave shows Geri, 46, admits she had a hard enough time learning the moves in the Spice All Together Now which kicks off this Saturday, tells Radio Times.
“It looks like it would be really uplifting but no, I wouldn’t.
“When I was in the Spice Girls, having to learn dance routines was very full-on. It would take me longer than everybody else and was hard work.” Poor lamb.
