Michael Douglas to present at Emmy Awards


Michael Douglas will present a trophy at the Emmy Awards later this month.

The veteran actor, who’s denied his marriage to Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is currently in "crisis", and his Behind the Candelabra co-star Matt Damon were yesterday announced as the first presenters at this year's ceremony.

The duo are also both nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Miniseries Or Movie for their roles in the HBO movie about flamboyant pianist Liberace and his relationship with Scott Thorson, which has 15 nominations in total.

Michael (68) is still promoting the film and recently insisted his marriage is "fine" despite confirming he and Catherine are having a "temporary separation".

The pair ? who wed in 2000 in a lavish ceremony at Manhattan's Plaza hotel in New York City and have two children, Dylan (13) and Carys (10), together ? were last photographed together in April and are reportedly receiving counselling in an attempt to save their 13-year marriage.

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will air live on 22 September from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
