Here's how you can watch the Golden Globes this weekend without turning on the TV
As you know, the Golden Globes are famously the most fun awards show. Much of that reputation has to do with the fact that this is the ceremony where nominees and other attendees (can) drink the whole time (seriously, more than 7,500 glasses of champagne are consumed throughout the event), but it’s also a good time because the worlds of movies and TV collide—and we get front row seats. But what happens if you don’t have a cable package or—gasp—a television to actually watch them? Don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to stream the Golden Globes telecast.
This year’s Golden Globes, hosted by Ricky Gervais, kicks off Sunday, January 5th at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
If you’re not near a TV to catch the broadcast, last year marked the first time you could live-stream the show on NBC Live, and the same stands for the 2020 Golden Globes. You can also download the NBC app and watch it there, or skip right to the good stuff and watch the what NBC has deemed the “best moments” on NBC’s Snapchat Discover page.
Unfortunately, you can only tune into NBC Live for the live-stream if you have a cable or satellite subscription. For the cord-cutters out there, there are other options. Streaming services Hulu Live, Sling TV, and AT&T Now will have the telecast airing live, and you can watch on any service where NBC is available, such as YouTube TV, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and Fubo TV. So everyone will be able to watch Beanie Feldstein win for Booksmart (yes?) and Chris Evans be adorable presenting.
Yeah, yeah, the show’s great and all, but we all know the best part is the Golden Globes red carpet. And yes, you can watch that without a TV, too.
Just like last year, the Globes are partnering with Facebook, not Twitter, to exclusively stream the celebrity arrivals to the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. You can watch that at this link to the Golden Globes Facebook page from 6 to 8 p.m. ET (3 to 5 p.m. PT). Expect 360-degree videos and behind-the-scenes footage. Viewers can submit questions for stars, and more good stuff will show up on the page and on the @goldenglobes Instagram account and story.
NBC hasn’t officially announced whether it will stream the red carpet via its network, but we’ll update as more information comes in.
Now, if only social media could figure out how to get us in on some of that champagne.
