Amy Poehler and Upper Darby-native Tina Fey host the 78th annual Golden Globes together for the fourth time — but they'll be presenting from different sides of the country.
The awards show will be bicoastal for the first time, with Fey broadcasting from Rockefeller Center in New York City and Poehler from the traditional Golden Globes location inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The event will look much different this year without the live audience tables of A-list celebrities, per COVID-19 regulations. However, Live presenters, including Awkwafina, Cynthia Erivo, Annie Mumolo, Joaquin Phoenix, Kristen Wiig and Renée Zellweger, will be in the room with either Fey or Poehler on the day of the show.
Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick will also present from Beverly Hills, alongside Sterling K Brown and Susan Kelechi. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones will present from New York City.
Philly native Leslie Odom Jr. was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his portrayal of Sam Cooke in "One Night in Miami."
Jane Fonda earned the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which is the equivalent of a lifetime achievement award. Last year, Tom Hanks won the award.
The Golden Globes will air live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET and will be available to stream the next day on Peacock.
Viewers can watch the award show on YouTube TV, AT&T TV Now, Hulu+, AT&T TV Now, Sling TV, Fubo TV and Locast as well.
“This year more than ever, fans have been at home consuming the best in film and television and coming to Twitter to talk about it,” said Sarah Rosen, Twitter’s head of U.S. entertainment partnerships. “Partnering with the Golden Globes to bring the official preshow to Twitter will give fans the opportunity to celebrate the best of entertainment, live and in real time, where the conversation happens.”
Disney Channel star Sofia Carson and Access Hollywood reporter Zuri Hall will host the preshow live from Beverly Hills and Rasha Goel and Scott Mantz will conduct remote interviews with the stars.
A panel of commentators, including Nick Viall, host of the podcast "The Viall Files," A.J. Gibson, Emile Ennis Jr., and comedian Fortune Feimster, will make predictions about the night's winners.
Users will be able to vote in pre-show polls and live tweet the show for the panelists to review.
