Hollywood stars are gearing up for tonight's (January 7) 2024 Golden Globe Awards, after a huge year for cinema which saw Barbie and Oppenheimer dominate the box office.

The Globes mark the first major ceremony of film awards season, which culminates with the Oscars on March 10. The 81st Golden Globe Awards will take place, as it has done since 1961, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

The main nominees

  • 8 - Oppenheimer
  • 7 - Killers of the Flower Moon
  • 7 - Poor Things
  • 5 - Past Lives

Emma Stone, Sandra Hüller, Lily Gladstone and Carey Mulligan are among the nominees in the two best actress categories — which are split by drama and musical or comedy.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul Giamatti, Jeffrey Wright and Bradley Cooper are recognised across the two best actor categories.

The full shortlist of nominees is available here.

How can I watch the Golden Globes?

The ceremony, which is expected to last for three hours, will air live coast-to-coast on CBS and the CBS app in the US at 8pm ET/5pm PT, and will stream live worldwide on Paramount+ with Showtime.

Stations in the Pacific time zone that carry the event live will also rebroadcast the entire telecast in primetime immediately following the live show.

A pre-show from the red carpet will begin at 6:30pm ET/3:30pm PT and will be available online via Entertainment Tonight's YouTube channel, GoldenGlobes.com and on platforms including Variety, Paramount+, CBS News Mobile App and CBS News Streaming, Pluto TV, Samsung TV Plus, Roku Channels, Amazon Channels, Sling TV, VUIT, Vizio Live Watch and Local Now.

Who is hosting the Golden Globes?

This year's ceremony will be hosted by US comedian and actor Jo Koy.

The 52-year-old has previously fronted specials for Comedy Central and Netflix, and his acting credits include Haunted Mansion and Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens.

In a statement, Koy said: "I've stepped onto a lot of stages around the world in my career, but this one is going to be extra special.

"I'm so excited to be hosting... This is that moment where I get to make my Filipino family proud. Mahal Kita (Google it)!"

We checked so you don't have to — it means 'I love you'.

Category presenters on the night will include Oprah Winfrey, Matt Damon, Jared Leto, Dua Lipa, Ben Affleck, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett and Florence Pugh.

What are the new categories?

Eight of the year's highest-grossing, most acclaimed or most watched films are nominated in the new cinematic and box office achievement category.

This is partly an attempt to make sure box office hits like Greta Gerwig's Barbie and Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer are recognized, but it's also a way for the Globes to bring in different types of movies to the ceremony.

Taylor Swift is nominated for her concert film The Eras Tour. Mainstream films which don't generally show up during awards season are also recognized, with nominations for the latest John Wick, Mission: Impossible and Guardians of the Galaxy instalments.

The other new category is best stand-up comedian on television. The nominees are former Globes host Ricky Gervais, Trevor Noah, Chris Rock, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman and Wanda Sykes.
