Golden Globe Awards FAQ: Where to watch the show, the pre-shows, the fashion

It’s officially award show season — and if you love them, many upcoming Sunday nights will be spent in front of the TV, seeing who’s wearing what and who gaves the most unintentionally funny acceptance speech. So you don’t miss a minute of the Golden Globe Awards this weekend, we’ve answered all your questions here:

Where can I watch the Golden Globes?

The 70th annual awards show will air Sunday, Jan. 13, at 8 p.m. on NBC.

What time will the show be over?

No one ever knows for sure, but expect it to end at 11 p.m. — the Globes are generally much more prompt than the other award shows.

Who’s hosting? Oh no, is it Ricky Gervais again?

Don’t worry, Gervais won’t be back for a fourth consecutive year to wreak havoc on Hollywood egos. NBC comedy stars and BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler helm the ceremonies this year. On a conference call earlier this week, the duo said they will rely heavily on their improv backgrounds to just make things up if they get stuck. (And Gervais won’t even be on the premises.)

Where can I watch the fashion? That’s all I really care about.

Understandable. E! goes all out with fashion coverage on “Live From the Red Carpet” from 6 to 8 p.m., as Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic will interview celebs. In addition to the usual GlamCam 360 — showing you every angle possible of every dress — the network is using it’s “much buzzed-about” (and much-mocked) Mani-Cam, giving viewers an uncomfortably close look at starlet’s manicures.

And this year, E! will also be bringing out the “Detail Cam,” which sounds like it ‘s going to have super close-up shots on everything. Judging by the puzzled reactions actors had to the Mani-Cam at the Emmy Awards, this newest toy should be a real hit.

What if the Mani-Cam scares me? Are there other pre-shows?

You’re in luck — the local NBC station (WRC) also starts pre-show coverage at 6 p.m., “1st Look LIVE on the Red Carpet,” hosted by “Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson. Joined by “Bachelorette” Ali Fedotowsky, and “New York Live’s” sara Gore and Lilliana Vazquez, the group will interview celebs. At 7 p.m., the “Today” show crew (Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, Natalie Morales) take over the red carpet preview until the show starts.
