Everything You Need to Know About the 2019 Golden Globes
Roll out the red carpet: The 2019 Golden Globes are almost here! The 76th annual telecast will serve as the kickoff to awards season by honoring the best in film and TV from 2018, and there are already some exciting reasons to tune in. Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s show.
What time are the 2018 Golden Globes?
The Golden Globes will air live on NBC on Sunday, January 6, 2019, at 8pm ET and 5pm PT. NBC will also air red-carpet coverage beginning at 6 pm ET/3 pm PT, followed by a 2019 Golden Globes Arrivals Special at 7pm ET/4pm PT.
After a successful (and hilarious) stint presenting an award together during the 2018 Emmys, Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will act as this year’s hosts. Let’s just hope they get that best friend handshake worked out by Sunday.
Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney film Vice leads the motion picture nominations with six nods, while FX’s American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace leads the TV nominations with four.

Will there be any special acknowledgments?
Jeff Bridges will receive the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award, an honorary Golden Globe given for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.
Additionally, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is introducing a major new TV special achievement award. The inaugural Carol Burnett Award will be presented to someone who has “made outstanding contributions to television on or off the screen.” The very first recipient? Its namesake, comedy legend and TV trailblazer Carol Burnett, of course.
You’ll also spot Idris Elba’s 16-year-old daughter Isan Elba as the 2019 Golden Globes ambassador. She’ll be escorting winners offstage following their acceptance speeches.
Will there be any surprises?
The best part and one of the main reasons to watch is that we won’t know until we’re surprised. Of course, sometimes the surprises can come in the form of unexpected winners, and given that there were some shocking snubs in this year’s nominees, it’s likely there will be a few wins we don’t see coming.
What’s on the menu?
Chilean sea bass, organic stuff honeynut squash, and pistachio cream cheese ivory cake are just a few of the tasty bites on executive chef Matthew Morgan’s menu for Sunday.
