The first of many dazzling nights in Hollywood for 2014 has arrived. The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday night, January 12, as some of the most well-known actors in television and film show up to the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Funny ladies and real-life best friends Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will also entertain viewers as the night’s hosts.
Could anything be better? The night might certainly turn out to be a laugh riot with the comedic duo commanding the first major awards show of 2014. Both of them have had a great deal of experience with making people laugh since they both are alumni of “Saturday Night Live.” But more than that, they have hosting experience. The two took the Golden Globes stage last year. Given Fey and Poehler’s terrific performance last year, this is probably not something to be missed.
The awards show will start at 8 p.m. EST, but one of the most exciting things about Hollywood awards shows is the fashion! The glamorous celebrities of Tinsel Town will begin to stroll down the red carpet at 5:55 p.m., courtesy of E! Online. Catt Sadler and Jesse Giddings are slated to host various events in which they interact with A-list celebs. And maybe we will be treated to the beloved mani-cam, which gives viewers an up-close and personal look at celebs’ manicures, or possibly the 360-degree mirror will make a comeback.
Writers at the International Business Times are pretty excited about this year’s Golden Globes. Christopher Zara wrote an article about fun drinking games to play while watching the awards show. Treye Green created a slideshow of some of the best fashion over the years and Ellen Killoran put her Hollywood knowledge to the test with her 2014 Golden Globes predictions.
