It feels like something of a miracle or a dream, that we are gearing up for the pandemic-delayed 78th annual Golden Globes Sunday. Understandably, there are many questions about the first major awards show of 2021.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to the Golden Globes, hosting for the fourth time, which strikes a return-to-normal feeling. But even their appearances will be on separate stages – in Los Angeles and New York – for the hybrid format in which most of the stars will be remote.
“This is going to be one of those experiences that’s once in a lifetime, hopefully,” said Andra Day, nominated star of “The United States vs. Billie Holiday,” during a pre-show virtual press conference Wednesday.When the 78th annual Golden Globes are handed out on Sunday, they will be the first major awards show of the season, coming nearly two months after we would typically find out the best picture winner.
Rather than the Globes’ usual Beverly Hills gala, this year’s event will be a hybrid affair, with “Saturday Night Live” alumnae Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting from opposite coasts: Fey will appear live from the Rainbow Room in New York; Poehler from the Beverly Hilton, the awards’ usual West Coast home. Nominees will be in locations all over the world.
The Globes could help provide clarity on the best picture front-runners for the Oscars — a win for “Nomadland” or “The Trial of the Chicago 7” could help an Oscar bid. But the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hands out the Globes, also has a reputation for unpredictability.
Here’s when and how to watch the show, predictions, and some of the surprises that might be in store:
What time do the festivities start?
The ceremony begins at 8 p.m. Eastern, 5 p.m. Pacific.
If you’re committed to watching all possible coverage, you’ll want to park yourself on your couch by 4 p.m. Eastern time, 1 p.m. Pacific — that’s when E! begins its preshow coverage. The official Golden Globe Awards preshow begins streaming live from the official @GoldenGlobes Twitter account and on the website at 6:30 p.m. Eastern, 3:30 Pacific. And the network broadcasting the ceremony, NBC, also has a preshow; with Jane Lynch and Susan Kelechi Watson as hosts, it starts at 7 p.m. Eastern, 4 p.m. Pacific.Where can you watch the ceremony?
On television, NBC is the official broadcaster. Online, if you have a cable login, you can watch via NBC.com/live. Depending on where you live, there’s also Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, YouTube TV or FuboTV, which all require subscriptions, though many are offering free trials.
Just what are the Globes anyway?
The 25 film and television awards are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a group of about 90 journalists mainly known for this ceremony. There’s no overlap with the more than 9,000 Academy Awards voters, but because of the timing (Oscar nominations this year fall on March 15), the Globes can seem like they’re influential.
The H.F.P.A. has been in the spotlight recently after a Los Angeles Times investigation highlighted the lack of Black voting members. (This year’s slate of eligible Black-led films, including “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” “One Night in Miami,” “Da 5 Bloods” and “Judas and the Black Messiah,” were shut out of the Globes’ best picture nominations.) A New York Times report also found that the tax-exempt nonprofit paid more than $3 million in salaries and other compensation to members and staff.
What should you watch for?
Netflix once again dominated the nominations this year, garnering a whopping 42. Its films include David Fincher’s Old Hollywood biopic, “Mank,” which picked up six nominations, and Aaron Sorkin’s latest courtroom drama, “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” which got five. Hulu’s “Nomadland,” which stars Frances McDormand, picked up four, and the film’s director, Chloé Zhao, could become the first woman of Asian descent to be honored in a director category. Chadwick Boseman is also a favorite to be honored for best actor for his final film role as a trumpeter in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” Jane Fonda will be given the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement, and Norman Lear will get the Carol Burnett Award for contributions to television.

Who do we think will win? Glad you asked! Check out our awards expert Kyle Buchanan’s predictions here.When we watch Golden Globes 2021 online, the tipsy stars will be spread across not one but two locations. Despite the fact that a pandemic is still going on, the Golden Globes ceremony is happening. It’s socially distanced, at least, and we will get to see some really great films and TV shows honored.
The 78th Golden Globe Awards are taking place almost two months later than usual and have a bicoastal ceremony for the first time ever. Viewers will at least get the familiar sight of hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. A slew of A-list presenters will be on hand at each location, but the nominees will attend remotely.The Golden Globes 2021 are honoring the year’s outstanding movies and television shows. Nominees for the top categories in film include Nomadland, Promising Young Woman and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.
Nominees for the top categories in TV include The Crown, Schitt’s Creek and Emily in Paris.
But this year’s nominations were criticized online and by the media for snubbing Black films and performers. Oscar contenders like One Night in Miami, Judas and the Black Messiah and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom — all featuring predominantly Black casts and made by Black filmmakers — were shut out of the Best Motion Picture category. And the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Golden Globes, is facing even more controversy after a report in the Los Angeles Times revealed that the group has no Black members.
It will be interesting to see if the hosts ding the HFPA (who hired them). Poehler and Fey have never been shy about unleashing cutting humor. And we could see some of the presenters or winners acknowledge the lack of diversity in this year’s awards.
