Here's absolutely everything you need to know about tonight's Golden Globes, and how to watch it in Ireland

The booziest ceremony takes place tonight.

THE GOLDEN GLOBES celebrates the best in film and television, and kicks off awards season tonight.

Unfortunately, it takes place in LA, so if you’re planning on tuning in, it’s gonna be a late one. But as attested from previous years, it’s the booziest of ceremonies and usually throws up a few gems. 

Here’s everything you need to know. 

Any Irish nominations this year? 

Yes!

Monaghan actress Caitriona Balfe is up for Best Actress for the TV show Outlander, for the fourth consecutive year.

Irish co-production The Favourite also got several nods, including Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, Best Screenplay, Best Actress for Olivia Colman, and Best Supporting Actress for Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone. 

Who are the faves? 

On the drama side, it looks like A Star Is Born will dominate. It’s only a matter of how many speeches Bradley Cooper will give, with the movie up for best drama, as well as the man himself up for best actor and director. Gaga will probably take best actress in a drama, and is definitely a safe bet for original song, too.

Comedy categories indicate a sweep for The Favourite being the eh, Favourite.

In TV, it’s likely that Julia Roberts will take an acting gong for Homecoming, while Killing Eve, The Kominsky Method, and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel are all shoo ins for consideration. 

 

What’s the ceremony gonna be like? 

Well hosting duties are in the hands of unlikely duo Sandra Oh of Killing Eve and Grey’s Anatomy fame, and Andy Samberg, of SNL and Brooklyn 99. You can expect them to perform some musical numbers, and don’t expect too much Trump jokes. They’ve already stated they’ll be avoiding any reference to him.

Presenters include our own Saoirse Ronan (where is her nom, eh?), Ben Stiller, Idris Elba, Catherine Zita-Jones, Dick Van Dyke, and Chrissy Metz.

Jeff Bridges will be accepting the Cecil B DeMille Award, an accolade that produced memorable speeches from Oprah Winfrey and Meryl Streep over the last two years.

Great, so how do I watch it in Ireland? 

The red carpet will be covered on E! as usual from 11pm until about 1am. The ceremony itself will be broadcast on NBC at around 1am, so if you can source a link up to that, brilliant. 

It won’t be over until about 4am. 

If you can’t stay up that late, RTE 2 will be airing the ceremony highlights at 9.30pm on Monday night. 

We’ll have full coverage on DailyEdge.ie in the morning. Of course.
