Watching the Golden Globes online is simple, and there’s plenty of time to get ready for the big event. While some people enjoy hosting their own Golden Globe parties and getting decked out for the event, others will want to tune into the excitement while on the go. The Golden Globes are considerably more laid back than the Oscars. You’ll find celebrities chatting away at tables in a conversational setting, eating and drinking to the occasion. It isn’t uncommon to spot a celebrity or two who are a little tipsy by the time they make their acceptance speech.
One of the exciting things about the Golden Globes is it is often a precursor for the Oscars. If an actor or actress wins a Golden Globe, chances are they will win an Oscar, or at least it’s safe to presume they will be nominated. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the greatest actors of this generation and had yet to win an Oscar. He won the Golden Globe for his performance in The Revenant and later won the Oscar for best actor. Check out some of the video highlights from past Golden Globes below, and you’ll see there is a more relaxed feel to the celebration.
There is a timeline of events leading up to the Jan. 8, 2017, Golden Globe Awards show that will stream live online at NBC and through various apps. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) created and bestows the Golden Globe awards on winners. They also announce the nominees and select a winner for the Cecil B. DeMille award. the Cecil B. DeMille award is presented to a selected recipient for their remarkable and outstanding contributions to the entertainment industry. On Nov. 3, the HFPA selected Meryl Streep for the 2017 Cecil B. Demille award. She will be presented with the award during the Jan. 8, 2017, Golden Globes show. The first African American to win the Cecil B. DeMille award was Sidney Poitier in 1982. In 2016, Denzel Washington won the award. You may see a full list of past Cecil B. Demille award winners at the official Golden Globe site.
Another tradition associated with the Golden Globe awards is Miss Golden Globe. There is now an opportunity for Mr. Golden Globe to have his shot at hosting duties, but typically the honor has been given to women. Mr. or Miss Golden Globe tends to be the son or daughter of a Hollywood movie star who is on the road to a successful career in the entertainment industry. The hosting duties put the starlet or young actor in the spotlight and really gives them a time to shine. This year, there will be three Miss Golden Globes. They are the stunning daughters of Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin: Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet Stallone. The 2016 Miss Golden Globe was Corrine Foxx, daughter of Jamie Foxx.
