Although a little later than we are all used to, the 78th Golden Globe Awards air on NBC this Sunday, putting the award season into overdrive as we celebrate the best film and television has had to offer over the past year (a year in which we needed them the most). CinemaBlend has already published multiple articles on the nominees, hosts, and other information about this weekend’s festivities, but one last thing to go over is how to watch the 2021 Golden Globe Awards streaming since so many of us have joined millions of other cord-cutters here recently.

Below we will break down the exact start-time of the Golden Globe Awards, all the different ways you can you watch it streaming, and some information on how to watch all of the wonderful pre-show events leading up to the big show.

When Do The Golden Globe Awards Air

The 78th Golden Globe Awards will air live starting at 8 p.m. ET Sunday, February 28 on NBC. All you will need to do in order to watch co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler serve as the masters of ceremony for the fourth time (from different locations on the East and West coasts this time), is turn the dial to your local NBC affiliate Sunday night.

How To Watch The Golden Globe Awards Streaming

It appears that NBC will not be hosting a live stream of the 2021 Golden Globe Awards, but those without a cable or satellite (or over-the-air antenna) aren’t out of luck as the ceremony will be available on a number of Live TV streaming options that offer NBC in their respective packages:

It should be noted that each of these internet-based live TV providers offer free trials for new subscribers, so there’s no reason to miss out on the Golden Globes action this weekend.

Additionally, the 78th Golden Globe Awards will be available to stream Monday, March 1 on NBC’s Peacock streaming platform, according to a Deadline report.

Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop barking at the mailman, or chatting about professional wrestling to his wife. Writing gigs with school newspapers, multiple daily newspapers, and other varied job experiences led him to this point where he actually gets to write about movies, shows, wrestling, and documentaries (which is a huge win in his eyes). If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
