The Golden Globe Awards, are often referred to as 'Hollywood’s Party of the Year,' as it is one of the biggest nights on the calendar for live viewing
The 77th edition of the Golden Globes was one of the biggest spectacles of 2020 with movies and TV shows like ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’, ‘Joker’, ‘Rocketman’, ‘Succession’, ‘Fleabag’ and ‘Chernobyl’ taking home the big awards. However, a lot changed in 2020 and now, as we are about to enter 2021, we will soon see the 78th edition unfolding with a new set of nominations. Though it is too early to say whether we will see the red carpet event or will it go the virtual route, we got you covered with all the information possible for the big event. Here’s everything you need to know about Golden Globes 2021.
What are the Golden Globe Awards?
The Golden Globe Awards, are often referred to as “Hollywood’s Party of the Year,” as it is one of the biggest nights on the calendar for live viewing and it is also one of the very few awards shows that celebrate both film and television. Viewed in more than 210 territories, the coveted award ceremony is produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).
Where and when?
Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic still raging, there has been much conflict among a lot of award shows productions as many of them have moved their dates back and forth. Speaking of the Golden Globes 2021, the award ceremony was first supposed to be held in January, like always, but looking at the pandemic situation, the event is now scheduled for February 28, 2021- a date earlier set for the Academy Awards. As a result, the Oscars have now been postponed to April 2021. If we talk about the venue, the event might not completely go the virtual route and we might see the hosts and a few nominees physically attending the ceremony. The event will take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, a location the ceremony has occupied since 1945.
Who all are attending?
Since the event might go virtual in 2021, the chances of seeing celebrities from TV and movies walking the red carpet are slim. However, we might expect a few familiar faces like Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, along with fresh faces who ruled 2020 with their stellar performances like ‘The Queen’s Gambit’s Anya Taylor-Joy and ‘Normal People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones. MEAWW will keep you posted with the updates.
Golden Globes 2021 will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, as confirmed by the event's official website . Interestingly, this is not the first time when the talented duo will host the awards show as they first took over the ceremony in 2015. Talking about the same Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment, shared, “NBC has long been the home to two of the funniest people on the planet – Tina Fey and Amy Poehler – and we didn’t want to wait any longer to share the great news that they’ll be hosting the Globes once again.”
Lorenzo Soria, President of the HFPA explained, “There’s no denying that Tina and Amy’s comedic chemistry is infectious. We can’t wait to see the dynamic duo return to the Golden Globes stage.”
Fey has won two Golden Globes and six Emmys for writing and/or acting for the multi-Emmy Award-winning comedy ‘30 Rock’ and ‘Saturday Night Live’ while Poehler is a Golden Globe and Emmy winner, well known for her portrayal of Leslie Knope on NBC’s beloved comedy ‘Parks and Recreation.’
How to live stream?
The awards will be streamed on the NBC network but can be streamed on the NBC Live or the NBC app. You can also watch the Golden Globes Pre-Show that starts at 6 pm EST on the streaming options mentioned.
When will the nominations be announced?
Well, for the nominations, we will have to wait till February 10, 2021. The list will be announced at 5 am PST, as reported by Vogue Australia. Just like every year, early predictions have come-in and it is being rumored that Aaron Sorkin’s Netflix hit ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ might score a nod for Best Film Drama along with David Fincher’s ‘Mank’. If we speak about TV shows, HBO’s mystery thriller ‘The Undoing’, chess-centric period drama ‘The Queen’s Gambit’, and the BBC and Hulu’s adaptation of Sally Rooney’s ‘Normal People’ might be the top contenders.
