The Golden Globes are back for 2018, recognizing the best talent in TV and movies throughout the last year. Whether or not you agree on the outcome, most of us like to tune into this show which is often seen as a precursor to the Oscars, taking place in early March. Seth Meyers hosts this year’s ceremony, with presenters including Emma Watson, Angelina Jolie, Gal Gadot, and Neil Patrick Harris. This year on the movies side, The Shape of Water has garnered the most nominations, with Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird, The Post, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri also expected to win big on the night. For the TV side, The Handmaid’s Tale, This is Us, and Fargo lead the way. But how can you watch the show?
In the U.S.
The Golden Globes takes place Sunday, January 7th, at The Beverly Hilton in California. The ceremony starts at 5pm PT/ 8pm ET. As always, the show will be broadcast live on NBC, and that’s how most people will probably watch. However, this year for the first time ever, the show will also be live streamed on the internet. In a deal between NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, fans can now watch via NBC’s website or mobile app. One point to note, though; in order to stream the ceremony via NBC, you will need a subscription to a cable or satellite provider.
In addition, the ceremony will also stream on DirecTV Now, Fubo TV, Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, Sony PlayStation Vue and YouTube TV, so if you have a subscription to those, you’re all set. The red carpet arrivals will stream via Facebook for those who want to take a look at all the outfits on the night.
Canadian fans can tune into NBC’s live broadcast via DirecTV Now, Fubo TV, Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, Sony PlayStation Vue and YouTube if those subscription services are offered in their area. If you’re not already subscribed, these channels often offer a free 7 day trial, so it’s worth looking into that. They can also watch E! Live 360 via the E! News App, to keep track of all the red carpet arrivals, switching back and forth between the arrivals cam and the fashion cam.
In the UK and Elsewhere
In the UK, as ever, E! will be reporting from the red carpet. That show starts at 11pm and lasts for 2 hours. You can also watch the arrivals via Facebook, of course. It’s a different story for the ceremony, though. Europeans have no way of watching the ceremony (we don’t condone illegal streaming), so you’ll need to rely on social media to keep you informed; follow your favorite entertainment news sites (cough cough) and keep your eye on Twitter throughout the evening. The actual ceremony starts about 1am GMT and will last around 3 hours, so you’re good as long as you don’t have to be up for work too early. Of course, Screen Rant will have the full list of winners posted for you to discuss after the show has aired.
