Golden Globes 2020: Start time, how to watch and nominations


Netflix’s Marriage Story leads the nominations.


For a good hint at what might do well at the Oscars this February, catch the Golden Globes on Jan. 5. Arguably, it’s the show that invites as many A-listers as possible, without actually worrying about the credentials of their work.

That cynical tone is exactly what we can expect from host Ricky Gervais, who’s back for a fifth round of ripping celebrity egos apart while sipping a beer on stage.

As for the awards contenders, Netflix’s Marriage Story leads the nominations with six, followed by The Irishman (another from Netflix) and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood with five each. The Joaquin Phoenix-starring Joker has four, including one for best picture, while Netflix’s The Two Popes also has four. 

Below you’ll find everything you need to know to catch the TV and movie awards show.

The red carpet

Who’s nominated?

The big best picture category is dominated by Netflix, but the likes of Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Killing Eve and Rian Johnson’s Knives Out have all received much-deserved nods in other categories. The full list is worth a good look. (Cats is buried right in there in the best original song category.)
