When is the 2021 Golden Globes?

The 78th Golden Globes will be broadcast from New York and Los Angeles for the first time on 28 February.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be splitting hosting duties, with Fey live from the Rockefeller Centre in Manhattan and Poehler presenting from the ceremony’s usual home of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Nominees will dial in virtually from around the world during the ceremony, as it’s likely many stars will still be unable to fly into the US due to travel restrictions.

Hollywood is gearing up for an unprecedented awards season, after the pandemic took a hammer to the release schedule and triggered profound changes across the industry.

After cinemas around the world closed in early 2020, studios were forced to act and either delayed their blockbusters or, controversially in some cases, made them available to stream.

It's not yet been revealed how people around the world will be able to tune into the show, but we will update this page with information on online streams when it becomes available.
