It’s almost that time of year again—awards season! It’s basically an extension of the holiday season, because we get the gift of so many great red carpet looks, and surely a few new memes. The first to kick off the incoming barrage of ceremonies is the Golden Globes, which is happening on Sunday 5th of January 2020 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. The annual film and TV awards ceremony brings together the biggest stars in entertainment, making for a show that you won’t want to miss.

Hosting the three-hour event is none other than Ricky Gervais, who’s a five-time veteran host of the show. So far, he is the only celebrity confirmed to take the mic, but awards presenters are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. To get an idea, last year’s presenters included Sterling K. Brown, Saoirse Ronan, and Chadwick Boseman. Who can forget the iconic moment when Taylor Swift and Idris Elba presented Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson with the award for Best Song?

The biggest question, though, is how to actually watch the 2020 Golden Globes. In an era of convenient livestreams, you don’t necessarily need to have a cable provider to catch some of the best moments of the year. While we don't yet know for sure which streaming platforms will be offering live streams of the 2020 ceremony, L’Officiel USA compiled the ones that were available for the 2019 ceremony. Below, check out six places where you can (probably) watch the 2020 Golden Globes on January 5.

 

Want to go straight to the source? You’ll find yourself on NBC, the official partner of the Golden Globes. NBC Live, which is NBC’s live streaming network, will have the show available to watch with a cable provider login. Get ready to grab some snacks and drinks, open Twitter, and glue your eyes to the TV screen for three hours!

Hulu, which has become one of the leading streaming services with its extensive content library and original shows like Looking For Alaska, is anticipated to have a stream of the awards show just a few remote-clicks away on Hulu Live TV. The platform features plenty of sports games, breaking news, and brand-new shows, and the Golden Globes are a must-see component. 

 

Formerly called DirecTV Now, AT&T TV Now offers packages with tons of channels like HBO, MTV, and Hallmark (for the best of sappy holiday movies). The 2019 Golden Globes had a live stream on DirecTV Now, so we’re expecting to catch them on AT&T TV Now in 2020.

 

E!’s Live From the Red Carpet series follows Hollywood’s biggest stars through the most exclusive premieres and awards shows from the Grammys to, yes, the Golden Globes. The show, which has been on air since 1996, traditionally starts an hour before the main event so you can ogle over all of the looks on the red carpet in real-time. Will anyone top Lady Gaga's Valentino look from last year? TBD.

With different price tiers and channel options, Sling TV is another great streaming service option where film fans can check out the ceremony. Channels range from HGTV to Viceland, so you might want to keep Sling TV for a lot longer than the length of the awards.

YouTube has shaken up the streaming world in the past few years with the introduction of YouTube Premium, TV and movie streaming options, and some of the platform’s own series. In its very pop culture-heavy fashion, the platform seems certain to stream the 2020 Golden Globes. Don’t forget to scroll through the comment section for some hot takes.
