THE GOLDEN GLOBE Awards, which celebrate the best in film and television, kicks off awards season proper tonight.
The Globes is usually one of the more fun ceremonies, so we can expect a bit of craic from the assembled A-listers. Planning on tuning in? Here’s everything you need to know.
Any Irish nominations this year?
Quite a few, actually! Our big hope is Ruth Negga, who is nominated for Best Actress in a Drama for her role in the civil rights film Loving.
Elsewhere, John Carney’s Sing Street is nominated for Best Comedy/Musical, Colin Farrell is up for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical for The Lobster, and Dublin actress Caitriona Balfe got a nod for the TV show Outlander.
Who are the favourites to win?
La La Land is predicted to dominate the comedy categories, including acting wins for its stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling – no huge surprises there.
What can we expect from the ceremony?
Jimmy Fallon will host the proceedings, taking over from Ricky Gervais (but never replacing Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as the hosts of our dreams).
Celebrities tasked with presenting awards include Goldie Hawn, Brie Larson, Sylvester Stallone, Nicole Kidman and Chris Hemsworth.
The Globes are a notoriously boozy event, so we will hopefully see celebs delightfully piddled. Fingers crossed.
How do we watch it over over here?
As usual, it’ll be a late one for Irish people looking to watch it live – the red carpet will be covered on E! from 11pm onwards.
The ceremony itself is due to kick off at around 1am our time on NBC, finally wrapping up at 4am.
If you need your beauty sleep, the whole thing will be aired on RTÉ2 at 9.30pm on Monday night.
Keep an eye on DailyEdge.ie tomorrow for full coverage of the Golden Globes. Fingers crossed for Ruth, Colin and the lads!
