Watch the Golden Globes Live Streaming Online: A Few Possibilities

How to watch the Golden Globes live streaming online: Here are a few possibilities

NBC will broadcast the Golden Globes from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Sunday, Jan. 15, at 5–8 p.m. PT (8–11 p.m. ET). Note for Los Angeles commuters: Santa Monica Boulevard will be closed off in the Century City/Beverly Hills area near the hotel. So, how to watch the Golden Globes live streaming online?

Before going anywhere, the first option is to head to NBC’s official Golden Globes’ website to find out if the network will be live-streaming the awards ceremony online. If I remember it correctly, two or three years ago, the Golden Globes ceremony was indeed live streamed online. (Last year, however, it was not.)

Note: As an option, we’ve embedded below livestream.com’s Golden Globes live streaming feed. Thanks to a tip by commenter Page Mackinley, this year you can also watch the Golden Globes live streaming online at rentadrone.tv.

(Sorry, the video has been removed from the source.)

Here are other options to watch the Golden Globes live streaming online: UStream, TV.com, and Justin.tv have frequently offered user-generated streams showing the ceremony. Bear in mind that many of those may be both of dubious legality and poor quality. So, if you want to be able to see every single detail on Anjelina Jolie’s face, don’t despair: the Golden Globes will be presented live on TV in dozens of countries. You’ll surely have better luck – and a better viewing experience – by checking out your local television schedule and tuning in at the appropriate time.

And finally, here are a couple more ways of watching the Golden Globes online: on the Golden Globes’ official Facebook page, presenter Jessica Alba will be blogging the awards show live and there may be clips posted on the site as well. Hulu.com may also offer clips from the ceremony.

If we uncover an official Golden Globes live streaming feed, we’ll post a direct link to it on Sunday.

Golden Globes ceremony

At this year’s Golden Globes ceremony, Ricky Gervais will return as host and celebrity roaster. Nominees range from Woody Allen to Madonna, from Asghar Farhadi’s A Separation to Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin, from Maggie Smith to Amy Poehler. (Note: The Artist‘s Uggie is not in the running, but will reportedly be in attendance.)

Among the confirmed Golden Globes presenters are Jessica Alba, Kate Beckinsale, Emily Blunt, Pierce Brosnan, Gerard Butler, George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Colin Firth, Jane Fonda, Harrison Ford, Dustin Hoffman, Felicity Huffman, Angelina Jolie, Queen Latifah, Jane Lynch, Elle Macpherson, William H. Macy, Ewan McGregor, Debra Messing, Helen Mirren, Julianne Moore, Paula Patton, Piper Perabo, Brad Pitt, Seth Rogen, and Channing Tatum.

Also: E.W. nominee Madonna, Johnny Depp (miraculously a non-nominee this year, but his Rango is in the running), Antonio Banderas, Jessica Biel, Robert Downey Jr., Jimmy Fallon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Salma Hayek, Nicole Kidman, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Adam Levine, Rob Lowe, Melissa McCarthy, Katharine McPhee, Clive Owen, Michelle Pfeiffer, Freida Pinto, Natalie Portman, Mark Wahlberg (whose Contraband opened to bigger than expected figures), and Reese Witherspoon (whose This Means War opens shortly).

Now, surprisingly missing from the list of presenters are Daniel Radcliffe and Robert Pattinson. The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 star has a new movie coming out soon, The Woman in Black, while the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 star has his own movie coming out – at least in the United Kingdom – in a few weeks, Bel Ami. It’s mind-boggling that two performers who’d definitely ensure lots of eyes glued to the TV screen will not be seen on the Golden Globes stage.

I joined Hulu to watch shows live. I am not going to pay $7.99 a month to be refused to watch because 50 other people tuned in before me. That is ridiculous and I am VERY offended. are other shows (e.g. L&O:SVU) the same? If so, I will cancel my membership after the one week free trial. In fact I won’t watch at all.

Very dissatisfied member.

Easy Ted. Hold the snark.

If you follow the ideas suggested here, you will find something — even it it’s not the whole show.

Well, i live in Switzerland and there are no ways for me to watch the ceremony other than on the internet. I don’t care about the quality. I just hope that someone’s gonna stream it online!!

What’s the point of the article if you have no definite suggestions as to the streaming sites?
