The Golden Globes will return to the air Tuesday on a one-year audition to try to win back their awards-season perch and relevancy to a Hollywood that shunned the awards after an ethics and diversity scandal.
AP reports that stars and studios boycotted last year’s ceremony, which NBC opted not to televise, saying the Hollywood Foreign Press Association needed time to make “meaningful reform.” A year later, much — though not all — of Hollywood appears ready to party, again.
Following red carpet coverage (E! will air it live beginning at 6 p.m. EDT), the broadcast from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., starts at 8 p.m. on NBC. For the first time, the show will also be live-streamed, on NBCUniversal’s Peacock. When the Globes were on the brink, NBC reworked its deal with the HFPA, putting the awards on a one-year contract and moving the show to Tuesday from its regular Sunday night spot.
