How to Watch the Golden Globes

For viewers in the United States, the ceremony starts at 8 pm Eastern Time (6.30 am IST) and airs at 5 pm on the West Coast. CBS will air the show with an NFL game as a strong lead-in, available on its app and Paramount streaming. However, only Paramount subscribers with the Showtime add-on can watch it live; otherwise, it'll be available on the streaming platform on Monday.

What's New This Year

This year marks the Golden Globes' first major broadcast of the awards season, now finding its home on CBS. Despite looking familiar on the surface, recent years have been tumultuous due to a lack of diversity within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which votes on the awards. Following reforms and the addition of journalists of color, the show returned last January on a one-year probationary agreement with NBC, which chose not to renew it.

The voting body has become more diverse, now comprising over 300 members from around the world. This change aims to address previous criticisms and ensure a fair selection process.

What Makes the Globes Special

The Golden Globe Awards have been a high-profile awards season broadcast, known for their A-list party atmosphere and irreverent tone compared to the Oscars. Despite recent challenges, the show remains a significant event in the entertainment industry.

In India, the 81st Golden Globe Awards will be streamed exclusively on Lionsgate Play on January 8 at 6:30 AM.
