Cape Town – South African and African viewers will be able to watch programming from Sunday's upcoming 2018 75th Golden Globe Awards live on Facebook, M-Net's channels and E! Entertainment on MultiChoice's DStv.
Official red carpet pre-show on Facebook
Time: Monday 8 January, 01:00 - 03:00
The 75th Golden Globes official red carpet pre-show will be streamed as a live broadcast exclusively on Facebook this year after Twitter streamed the official red carpet show exclusively in 2017.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and dick clark productions announced that they've reached a deal with Facebook to live stream the ceremony's official red carpet pre-show for the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
The official two-hour pre-show entitled The HFPA Presents: Globes Red Carpet Live will run from Monday morning 8 January at 01:00 to 03:00 South African time at www.facebook.com/GoldenGlobes with red carpet presenters AJ Gibson, Jeannie Mai, Scott Mantz and Laura Marano.
As part of the partnership, 360-degree videos will be captured from the red carpet and throughout the pre-show and distributed on the Golden Globes’ Facebook page.
"We’re thrilled to partner with Facebook and give viewers a front-row seat to the red carpet that can’t be found anywhere else,” says HFPA president Meher Tatna in a statement.
“We hope to enhance the overall viewing experience so fans at home can feel they’re enjoying the show alongside their favorite stars at Hollywood’s biggest party of the year.”
Sibyl Goldman, Facebook’s head of entertainment partnerships, says “We always aim to create unique experiences which bring communities together, and partaking in the kick-off of award season in conjunction with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is a demonstration of our commitment to bring fans together through entertainment they enjoy.”
