1. When are the 2021 Golden Globes?

The 78th annual Golden Globes will take place on Sunday, February 28. The three-hour telecast will begin at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and end at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT, so set your DVRs. Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler will host the ceremony in a virtual coast-to-coast format—Fey at the Rainbow Room in New York City, and Poehler at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

2. How do I watch the Golden Globes?

The ceremony will be exclusively broadcast on NBC, NBC.com and the NBC app, though you’ll need to log in with your cable credentials to access the stream.

3. What if I don't have cable?

No cable? No problem. You can access the Golden Globes ceremony by signing up for a streaming service—like fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV and Sling TV. Each subscription offers a free trial (don’t forget to cancel before it expires!) and gives you access to all the primetime networks, including live TV.

4. Will there be a red-carpet broadcast?

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it doesn’t sound like there will be a red-carpet broadcast ahead of the 2021 Golden Globes. Based on previous socially distant awards show (like the Emmys), the chances are highly unlikely, since the Globes will only feature virtual appearances by winners, presenters, etc. Still, we expect the stars to bring their fashion A-game during the acceptance speeches, so be on the lookout.
