Here’s how to watch the Golden Globe-nominated movies and TV shows

The Golden Globes are tonight, which means it’s time to celebrate our favorite films and television shows of 2017. If you’re really ambitious, you may be settling in to watch as many Golden Globe-nominated shows and movies as you can before the ceremony starts at 8 p.m. EST. But with so many options across several streaming services and networks, where do you start?

Luckily for us, the team over at Watching, The New York Times TV and movie recommendation site, put together a guide of the best ways to watch the buzzworthy Golden Globe nominees. Though there’s way too many to watch in one day, you can still check ’em out after tonight’s ceremony. (And don’t worry if you don’t have cable — here’s how to stream the Golden Globes without even turning on your TV.)

Here are a few of our favorite Golden Globe-nominated TV shows, just to get you started.

Big Little Lies

Based on Liane Moriarty’s novel of the same title, HBO’s Big Little Lies follows three mothers living in Monterey, California, as they navigate dark secrets while trying to protect their families. (Bonus: With Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, and Nicole Kidman starring, the cast is stacked and the soundtrack is amazing.) Watch it on HBO Go and HBO Now.


The Handmaid’s Tale

Another show based on a book, the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale is based on Margaret Atwood’s eerily relevant dystopian novel. The story depicts a society where women are treated as property of the state. Check it out on Hulu.


This Is Us

For fans trying to fill the void of Parenthood, NBC’s This Is Us will be worth your time. The show tells the story of three siblings trying their best at adulthood. The soapy drama is also interspersed with flashbacks of their often tumultuous childhoods. (Bonus: Milo Ventimiglia, who plays family patriarch Jack, appears shirtless in the first episode). Stream it on Hulu.
