When awards season rolls around, they don’t come much bigger than the Golden Globes, which sit behind only the Oscars when it comes to recognising Hollywood's best movies. We’re all used to spending the next morning arguing about who should have won what, but the really committed will try to watch the Golden Globes live - though if you want to watch from the UK you might be in for a late night.

When are the 2019 Golden Globes?

The 2019 Golden Globes will be held in LA’s Beverly Hilton Hotel from 5pm PT/8pm ET on Sunday 6 January 2019, but they’ll be broadcast on TV and online around the world - it works out as 1am on Monday 7 January here in the UK.

Which channel are the Golden Globes on?

If you're in the US, the Golden Globes are airing exclusively on NBC, with red carpet and pre-show coverage beginning an hour before the ceremony itself. 

In the UK, no channel has picked up the rights to the ceremony, so you won't be able to watch along from your TV - but don't worry, there are still ways to watch live if you want to.

How to watch the Golden Globes online

US viewers who won't be near a TV have a few options - head to the NBC website to stream the whole show live, or watch it through the NBC app for your device of choice - just remember that you'll need your cable login to access it.

If you don't have cable, there are still a few options. Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV, Sling TV, and PlayStation Vue will all be streaming the ceremony live, and while they're all paid-for services, each offers a free trial you could sign up for ahead of time - just remember to cancel again before you get billed.

If you're in the UK and want to watch live, your only option is to use a VPN to access one of the above streams. Our current top VPN recommendation is NordVPN, but take a look at our full VPN ranking to find out more. Once you've chosen a VPN, set it to the US, and then sign up for a free trial of one of the above platforms so that you can watch along live - though bear in mind that you might need a US credit card or address in order to sign up.

Who is hosting the 2019 Golden Globes?

This year the show is being joint hosted by comedians and actors Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, which means we should be in for a funny time if nothing else.

Who is nominated for the Golden Globes?

There are a whopping 25 categories this year, so we haven't listed them all here - but we have gathered up all the nominees for what we think are the biggest categories you're likely to care about. Remember that unlike the Oscars, the Globes splits films up into 'Drama' and 'Musical or Comedy', which does sometimes mean you get some slightly odd splits.

It's usually the studios that decide which category they want to go for, hence oddities like the very musical A Star Is Born coming under the 'Drama' section!
