This Sunday (February 28), the 78th Golden Globe Awards will kick off 2021's awards season in a hybrid manner, with some celebrities walking down the red carpet while others joining in through webcams and the safety of their homes. Keeping the pandemic in mind, the Golden Globes 2021 will be taking place on two coasts for the first time.
Comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be returning for the fourth time to host the Golden Globe Awards show. While Tina Fey will host from New York City, Amy Poehler will be joining from Beverly Hills, California. According to reports, the Golden Globe 2021 award presenters will be seen on both stages, but the winners will appear virtually from all across the world.
Celebrities presenting at the 78th Golden Globe Awards 2021 include Michael Douglas, his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Sterling K Brown, Susan Kelechi Watson, Awkwafina, Cynthia Erivo and Joaquin Phoenix. Kristen Wiig, Renee Zellweger, Annie Mumolo, Kenan Thompson, Tiffany Haddish, Anthony Anderson, Kate Hudson and Margot Robbie will also be walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes 2021.
With a few celebrities walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes 2021, a pre-show event will also be taking place before the ceremony begins. According to USAToday, the Golden Globes 2021 pre-show will be streaming live on @GoldenGlobes Twitter and E! Online Twitter handle. Meanwhile, a traditional red carpet coverage with virtual nominee interviews will be taking place on E! Online and NBC's websites.
The three-hour awards ceremony will start on Sunday, February 28, 5 pm PT/8 pm ET, which is approximately 6 am IST (Monday, March 1).
Despite plenty of serious snubs including Michaela Coel's I May Destroy You, fans have found a few favourites in the 2021 Golden Globes nominations list. Shows like The Queen's Gambit, Emily in Paris and Schitts Creek have made it into leading categories. As for films, fans have been rooting for director David Fincher's Mank and Chloé Zhao's Nomadland.
