It’s official: the 2021 awards season is here, and it’s sure to be a weird one. After the strange year the entertainment industry had in 2020— filled with release postponements, movie sets being shut down and Netflix TV series going viral — who knows what’s going to happen. The Golden Globes, the first major televised awards show of the season, is happening this Sunday, February 28th at 8pm E.T and 5pm P.T on NBC. Here’s how to watch it.
Despite how you feel about the Golden Globes and the current state of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Sunday night is sure to be one-of-a-kind. It’s going to be a virtual ceremony, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. If there’s anyone who can turn a strange ceremony lacking in the usual booze-filled celebrity shenanigans into memorable, light-hearted, on-the-nose reparté about the current moment it’s those two.
If you’ve got cable, you can tune into NBC or NBC’s website with a TV-provider login at 8 pm E.T to catch the action. If you’re a cord-cutter, there are a few options for catching the kickoff to awards season.
