Happy 2018! Award season is officially upon us! The first award ceremony of the year is the Golden Globe Awards, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. Seth Meyers is hosting the show, which takes place this Sunday, January 7th, at 8PM EST.

With all the cable cutting, streaming and social media platforms out there, let’s take a look at how you can watch the show at home and keep up with all the Red Carpet pre-shows.

The show is hosted by NBC and will air across the United States at the same time — no time delay here. The awards ceremony begins at 8PM on the East Coast, 7PM in the Central Time Zone, 6PM in Mountain Time and 5PM on the West Coast.

You can watch the show live on TV or live on the NBC app, via your cable provider log in. If you have Hulu Live, you can also watch the Golden Globes via the NBC channel.
