LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Golden Globes will be handed out Sunday, but many nominees got a practice run through the awards process Friday at the American Film Institute's annual luncheon.

Like the Globes, the AFI Awards celebrate outstanding work in film and television.

Stars happily obliged. Sarah Paulson, who won an Emmy for playing Marcia Clark in "The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story," embraced "Atlanta" creator and star Donald Glover. Both are also nominees Sunday.
