UPDATE 6:05 PM: Without warning, NBC has blocked the livestream from their website. The stream has been replaced by a Twitter feed from NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
Jimmy Fallon will host the 74th Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton tonight, and if you’d like to watch it but can’t get in front of a TV, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that NBC will livestream the ceremony on their website starting at 8 PM ET. The bad news is that you will need to log in with your cable subscription, so cord-cutters are going to have a tough time of it. Still, you can follow TheWrap on Twitter for updates as the envelopes are opened.
“La La Land” goes into tonight as the heavy favorite to win the award for Best Musical or Comedy, competing against dark horses like “Sing Street” and “20th Century Women,” as well as surprise nominee “Deadpool.” In the race for Best Drama, “Moonlight” and “Manchester by the Sea” are considered the favorites, though the award might go to likely Oscar contenders “Lion,” “Hell Or High Water” or “Hacksaw Ridge.”
On the TV side, this Golden Globes marks the first opportunity for two smash-hit sci-fi newcomers, “Westworld” and “Stranger Things,” to come away with a big win… though they will likely have to go through “Game of Thrones” to win the top prize.
The best chance for the two new shows may be in the Best Actress category, as Evan Rachel Wood and Winona Ryder have been nominated for their respective performances as the android Dolores in “Westworld” and the harried mother Joyce in “Stranger Things.”
In the comedy category, Amazon series “Mozart in the Jungle” looks to repeat its surprise victory for the top prize last year, competing against a field that includes Donald Glover’s new FX dramedy “Atlanta.”
In the limited series class, “People v. O.J. Simpson” hopes to enjoy the same success at the Globes that it enjoyed at the Emmys, as it is nominated for the top prize along with acting nominations for Sarah Paulson, Courtney B. Vance, John Travolta and Sterling K. Brown. Its competitors in the category include the HBO mystery miniseries “The Night Of” and Tom Hiddleston’s “The Night Manager.”
