Watch 2018 Golden Globes Livestream: How To Find Video Of The Award Show And Red Carpet Live Online
Those who want to watch the 2018 Golden Globe Awards and red carpet live stream will be in luck this year, with some easy options for viewing the annual award show live online and check out the wave of activism expected to accompany the evening.
The television and movie award show kicks off Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, with red carpet coverage starting at 6 p.m.
There is plenty of extra attention on the show this year as a number of celebrities are following through with protests against sexual harassment in the industry. Many are wondering if host Seth Meyers will take aim at disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, as he often has on his late-night comedy show.
Many actresses are also wearing black to the 2018 Golden Globes in support of the Times Up movement. As the New York Times noted, this anti-harassment movement has gained considerable steam and stretches beyond Hollywood, with a $13 million legal defense fund set up through donations for women in low-income professions to protect themselves from sexual harassment and from retribution of stepping forward to make claims.
The movement is in part a response to criticism that the #MeToo movement focused heavily on high-powered industries, where women are already more empowered.
The attention on the movement means that there will likely be more activism than usual for those watching the 2018 Golden Globe Awards livestream — with some of the normal political activism likely still thrown in.
In the past few years, the Golden Globes has been one of the most difficult events to find online. The broadcast itself was long blacked out from livestream broadcasts, even as networks moved other live events and sports online.
