The Golden Globes is kicking off 2021's award season. While it's likely to look very different this year, it's still sure to be a night of glitz and glamour, with an award given out here and there. Make sure you know exactly where to watch a Golden Globes 2021 live stream online wherever you are to see which movies sweep up the most awards.

Golden Globes live stream: at a glance

NBC is once again the official broadcaster of the Golden Globes Awards live stream in the US. It'll be airing from 8pm ET / 5pm PT. That's 1am GMT / 12pm AEDT / 2pm ZDST on Monday, March 1 around the globe in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

With the ongoing pandemic, the Golden Globes has had to adapt - a pattern we're likely to see across the rest of the major award shows this year. Split between New York and Beverly Hills, Ricky Gervais has dropped the baton with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler instead returning to host the awards show for the first time since 2015.

While Amy Poehler will be hosting from The Beverly Hilton, Tina Fey is anchoring from the Rainbow Room in the Rockefeller Plaza, with nominees expected to - for the most part - tune in via video feed to maintain social distancing rules.

And that's not the only thing that will be different this year. Streaming giants dominate the nominee lists with movie theatre door's remaining firmly shut, allowing for the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu to thrive.

Whether you enjoy celebrity spotting or are a film buff, then, watching the Golden Globes awards this year will certainly been an interesting one compared to previous years. Find out how to live stream the Golden Globes 2021 online where you are in the world by using our guide below.
