2021 Golden Globes: Everything to Know


It’s almost time for the Golden Globes!

Hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the 78th annual Golden Globes are this weekend. Here’s all the deets you need to know ahead of the awards show.

The 2021 Golden Globes are fast-approaching. Honoring the best in film and television, the annual ceremony will also mark the beginning of the 2021 awards season.

So, let’s make sure we’re prepared! We’ve rounded up everything you need to know about the 78th edition of the popular awards show, including the deets on how to watch, and of course, who’s nominated.

First Up: How to Watch

This year’s Golden Globes will air live on NBC. Sunday February 28 is the big day, and the ceremony will begin at 8 pm EST / 5 pm PST.

Don’t have live TV? The ceremony will also be available to watch on NBC’s accompanying app and website. It will also be available across several streaming platforms, like YouTube TV, Hulu+, the Roku Channel, AT&T TV Now, Sling TV, and Fubo TV.

If you can’t wait to see your favorite stars, there are plenty of pre-show festivities going down.

E! Is kicking off coverage with Countdown to Live From E! At the Golden Globes at 4 pm EST / 1 pm PST. It’s followed by Live From E! At the Golden Globes at 6 pm EST / 3 pm PST.

Sofia Carson and Zuri Hall are hosting the official HFPA and Dick Clark Productions pre-show. It streams live from the official Golden Globes Twitter account and the official Golden Globes website at 6:30 pm EST / 3:30 pm PST.

NBC is also getting in on the pre-show action, airing the Golden Globes Pre-Show starting at 7 pm EST / 4 pm PST. NBC’s pre-show is hosted by Jane Lynch and Susan Kelechi Watson.

Who’s Hosting This Year?

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are bringing the laughs this year. They’re once again returning to host, after having emceed the Golden Globes a few times already. The comedic pair hosted the 70th, 71st, and 72nd ceremonies in 2013 through 2015.

This will be the first year that the Golden Globes takes place in two separate locations. Fey is hosting from New York’s Rainbow Room, while Poehler will simultaneously host from the Beverly Hilton hotel — the Globes’ traditional home.

It’ll be a marked change from last year’s host. If you remember, Ricky Gervais cracked plenty of scathing jokes about Hollywood’s elite. Between jokes about Jeffrey Epstein’s A-list friends, Harvey Weinstein, and Hollywood’s lack of diversity, he garnered plenty of disapproving looks from the A-list audience. I guess they decided not to have the British comedian back this year.

Who’s Nominated?

As usual, the nominees are a mix of Globes veterans and newcomers alike.

Netflix (unsurprisingly) leads in both film and television nods. The streaming giant managed to pick up 20 nominations for its content. The Crown and Mank both scored six nominations each. The Trial of the Chicago 7 and Schitt’s Creek both picked up five nods, while Ozark scored four.

Emily in Paris surprised by receiving a nomination for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Series star Lily Collins also scored a nod for Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

Chadwick Boseman received his first nod posthumously for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Co-star Viola Davis also received a nod for her role in the film.

The buzzworthy Promising Young Woman received several nods, including Best Director and Best Motion Picture.

Disney+’s hit The Mandalorian is up for Best Television Series – Drama.
