The Queen's Gambit won best limited series.


The  Golden Globes  are here! The nominations for the first major award ceremony of 2021 have been stacked with controversy -- with glaring snubs like I May Destroy You -- but there are plenty of great shows and great performances nominated.

The awards have already seen The Queen's Gambit and Anya Taylor-Joy scoring well-deserved wins, and Rosamund Pike won best actress (musical or comedy) for I Care a Lot with her incredible performance as Marla Grayson.

Keen to watch? Here's everything you need to know to watch the 2021 Golden Globes, including nominations, start time and livestream options. Plus, scroll down for a few looks from the red carpet.

Date and start time

US: Sunday, Feb. 28 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET

Australia: Monday, March 1 at noon AEDT

UK: Monday, March 1 at 1 a.m. GMT

Who's hosting?

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. This will be the fourth time they've hosted together -- though they won't actually be in the same room. Like most awards shows nowadays, the Globes will be a virtual show. While Poehler will host from The Beverly Hilton, where the Globes are usually held, Fey will be set up in The Rainbow Room inside NBC's corporate headquarters at 30 Rock. Let's hope there are no lag issues.

How to watch or livestream

The virtual ceremony will be broadcast live from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on NBC. Here are a few ways you can watch NBC -- and of course, seven-day free trials are your friend.

YouTube TV costs $65 per month and includes NBC. Plug in your ZIP code on its channel lineup page to see what live, local networks are available where you live.

For $35 per month, Sling TV's Blue tier offers NBC in select markets.

For $65 per month, Fubo offers live NBC. 

AT&T TV costs $55 per month and includes NBC. You can use its channel lookup tool to see if you get a live feed of Fox and the other local networks in your ZIP code.

AustraliaFoxtel's Fox Arena will broadcast the ceremony.

UK: Unfortunately, no British channel airs the show. But if you enjoy the red carpet, it'll likely be streamed on the Golden Globes Facebook page. The winners will also be quickly announced via Twitter, so that might be your best bet.

The nominees were announced on Feb. 3 by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson on NBC's Today show. Check out the full list here.

Who are the favorites to win?

Chloé Zhao's lauded Nomadland is the big shout for best picture (drama). It's a tight best actress race between Viola Davis and Frances McDormand, but best actor should see an apt posthumous win for Chadwick Boseman. You can find our full winners predictions here.

Will there be a red carpet?

A socially-distanced red carpet took place, with stars like host Amy Poehler, Margot Robbie and The Crown's Josh O'Connor getting all dressed up for the show. The Globes pre-show kicked off on Twitter and its website starting at 3:30 p.m. PT/ 6:30 p.m. ET.
