Hollywood’s long march toward the Oscars — if they ever end up finding a host — begins with the 2019 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 6. The 76th annual ceremony is being hosted by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg and Killing Eve’s Sandra Oh and our hopes for them are Amy Poehler and Tina Fey high. (And not just because they’ve promised to steer clear of the T-word). Don’t watch this one on your sofa and head to one of these Golden Globes watch parties instead. Pro tip: Check our prediction guide before you go.
Start your night with a free glass of Champagne by RSVPing to The Skint’s also free Golden Globes watch party at Littlefield.
