Glorious news for Jennifer Aniston: she won't have to avoid ex Brad Pitt -- or his lady friend Angelina Jolie -- at next Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.

Single girl Aniston, 40, has been confirmed as a presenter at the awards; Inglourious' many nominations led to much speculation about an Aniston-Jolie-Pitt faceoff. (Pitt and Aniston announced their split five years ago in January 2004, divorcing later that year.)
