2019 Golden Globes Live Stream: How to Watch The Golden Globes Online
Hollywood’s most anticipated award season finally kicked off on December 6th with the annual Golden Globe nominee announcements. Now that the nominations are out of the way there is less than a month to go before “Hollywood’s Party of the Year” kicks off. While rubbing shoulders with the stars in Beverly Hills, California may be off-limits for most, movie-goers will be able to tune in to the ceremony from the comfort of their couch.
When are the Golden Globes?
Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh are hosting the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 6, 2019. The three-hour ceremony at The Beverly Hilton will be broadcast live on NBC from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern Time (or 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Pacific). The HFPA, or Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will be dishing out critical appraise in 25 different categories ranging from best motion picture to best-supporting actor.
Who are the top nominees for the 2019 Golden Globe awards?
Adam McKay’s biopic on Dick Cheney, Vice, leads the race with six nominations in several major categories. McKay will be going head to head with Bradley Cooper (A Star is Born) for the Best Director award. Luckily Cooper has plenty else to be proud of even if he doesn’t win. Thanks to his excellent casting decisions, A Star is Born is up for four other nominations alongside The Favourite and Green Book.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace is next up with four nominations, one of which is Best Performance by an Actor. If 31-year-old Darren Criss wins, his performance as the hardened serial killer will make him one of the youngest Golden Globe winners in the history of the ceremony.
Barry, The Kominsky Method, Homecoming, Sharp Objects, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and A Very English Scandal all landed three nominations, rounding out the three and up nomination list.
Some of this year’s Golden Globe surprises
With so many opportunities you’d think critically acclaimed shows, talented actors and actresses, and talked about directors would all get a shout out but this year’s nominations are full of surprises.
Congratulations to the Golden Globe® nominees in the category Best Director Motion Picture Bradley Cooper ("A Star is…
- Damien Chazelle’s 2016 film La La Land won seven awards in 2017, breaking the record for most Golden Globes won by a single movie. While his astronaut drama, First Man, was nominated for best score and supporting actress it missed out on significant categories like best director and best drama, a massive let-down for Chazelle.
Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language
Congratulations to the Golden Globe® nominees in the category Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language "Capernaum"…
- Two of this year’s highly acclaimed foreign films, Burning and Cold War, didn’t even show up on the HFPA’s radar, proving that popularity throughout the year doesn’t mean a film will get a nod at the Golden Globes.
- Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma not only snagged a nomination for best foreign language film. It’s also up for best director and best screenplay. Unfortunately, Cuaron won’t get to see Roma contest for best drama since stipulations keep foreign film entries from double dipping in the major motion picture categories.
Best Motion Picture – Animated
- Despite Benedict Cumberbatch’s solid voice acting and the undeniable success at the box-office during its debut, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch didn’t make the nomination list. In its stead, Mirai, a lesser-known, less expensive, heartfelt Japanese film is up for Best Animated Motion Picture alongside popular sequels like Incredibles 2, and Ralph Breaks the Internet.
Best Television Series – Comedy
Congratulations to the Golden Globe® nominees in the category Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy "Barry", "The…
- Somehow the HFPA overlooked much-loved comedies Atlanta, GLOW, Bojack Horseman and Brooklyn Nine-Nine in favor of The Kominsky Method. At least The Good Place is finally gaining the recognition it deserves this year with not only a nod for best comedy but Kristen Bell’s performance as well.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
- Without a doubt, Ana Dowd deserves a nod for her spine-tingling performance as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale. Unfortunately, the HFPA doesn’t seem to agree. While she was nominated last year, they passed over her this year in favor of Yvonne Strahovski who plays the evil Serena. While we don’t disagree with this nomination, it’s sad to see Dowd overlooked two years in a row.
