It’s that time of the year again where Hollywood’s best and brightest from television and film are awarded for their accomplishments. No, it’s not the Academy Awards. No, it’s also not the Emmys. It’s the Golden Globes, people.

The 75th Golden Globes Awards ceremony will be held tonight, January 7, from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, and broadcast by NBC starting at 8 p.m. ET. Late night host Seth Meyers will host the ceremony for the first time, taking over for Jimmy Fallon. Oprah Winfrey will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award, something we can all agree on in these polarizing times.

In terms of the names and titles expected to be mentioned most often Sunday night, director Guillermo del Toro’s career best The Shape of Water leads the film pack in nominations with seven total. HBO’s Big Little Lies paces television’s nominees with six total nods. As a precursor to the Academy Awards, fans and industry insiders will be paying particularly close attention to the Best Actor and Actress races in the drama category. Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour) and Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) are thought to be the front runners in the former with Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water) leading the way in the latter. But don’t count out Daniel Day-Lewis (Phantom Thread) and Meryl Streep (The Post) as dark horse contenders (perhaps the only time in the last 25-plus years either have been described as dark horses).

Your best bet for live streaming the star studded event is through NBC.com/live. If you pay for cable (or know someone who does), all you need is your log-in and password information, and you’re off to the races. However, if you’re cutting costs around the house and don’t have a cable subscription, you’ll need to look elsewhere. Might we suggest DirecTV’s free seven-day trial? You’ll get a full seven days cost free before your paid membership begins. Facebook will be live streaming the red carpet.
