The 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards are often referred to as Hollywood’s biggest party. It is one of the biggest nights on the television calendar for live viewing, as entertainment fans get to watch their favorites mix and mingle with one another. It’s also one of the few award shows that combine the best of both genres of film and television.
It is fun for viewers to watch celebrities fawn over one another as the show heads into their required commercial breaks. Many times viewers get to see certain celebs pal around that fans might have never known were friendly with one another. Many selfies are seen taken, and the champagne flows all night as the Golden Globes are one of the few award shows where alcohol is served, leading to the unpredictability of the show’s winners if they may have imbibed a bit too much.
The 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air Sunday, January 5 on NBC, live from 8-11 p.m. EST.
