The Golden Globes is finally here, and we couldn't be more excited to see which of our favourite stars will be taking home the coveted statuette! From Marriage Story to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and from Succession to Big Little Lies, the evening is a celebration of all of the outstanding films and TV shows of 2019, but who will win big? Where can you tune in to find out? Who are the nominees? Find out everything you need to know here... 

When are the Golden Globes 2020? 

The Golden Globes will be taking place on Sunday night at the The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. In the UK, the show will be starting at 1am, so unless you stay up to watch the action unfold on Twitter, we would suggest checking back to find out who won what (and of course, to find out Ricky Gervais' most outrageous jokes), in the morning!

Where can I watch the Golden Globes ceremony? 

Like with the Oscars, the Golden Globes doesn't have a network provider in the UK, and so the show unfortunately won't air over here. For fans who want to check out the amazing outfits of the evening, the red carpet show will be available on the Golden Globes Facebook page, and of course we're certain that keen viewers across the pond will be sharing the highlights on Twitter! The winning speeches will generally also be available on the Golden Globes YouTube channel the following day. 

Who will be hosting the Golden Globes? 

Ricky Gervais will be hosting the show for the fifth time - and he is certainly a controversial choice! The After Life star is known for poking fun at the expense of his glamorous audience, even though most of them take it in their stride! Speaking about the gig on the Graham Norton Show, Ricky explained: "The first time I did it I thought, 'Shall I do it for the 200 egos in the room or for the 200 million watching at home?' It’s no contest, and I try and make it a spectator sport. I never do anything that terrible as it’s on network television, but I do have to show my script to a lawyer at the last minute. They don’t change anything because I know the law and what I can get away with. I’ve never libelled anyone, and I’ve never had a complaint upheld!"

Who will be presenting awards at the Golden Globes? 

While Ricky will be hosting, there will also be a host of previous winners and nominees of the coveted award who will be presenting it to a new recipient. The stars who are confirmed to be taking the stage include Glenn Close, Salma Hayek, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer, Ana de Armas, Dakota Fanning, Rami Malek, Amy Poehler, Margot Robbie and Kerry Washington.
