Golden Globes Live Blog: Real-Time Commentary About the Show’s Highlights and Lowlights

After a year off the air due to controversy, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globe Awards — which honor achievements in film and on television — are back on NBC on Tuesday evening, with the 80th edition emanating from the Beverly Hilton. Scott Feinberg, THR’s executive editor of awards, will be updating this post throughout the night with his take on the show. Follow along below!

4:50 p.m. I’ll be weighing in on tonight’s telecast not from the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton, from which I’ve usually covered the Globes, but from my living room couch due to the thin skin of the HFPA — and I’m not alone. This group of journalists decided not to invite back a sizable group of journalists — including my counterparts at Deadline, Variety, Vanity Fair, Gold Derby and The Wrap — ostensibly because we belong to the Critics Choice Association, which puts on another awards show, the Critics Choice Awards, but really, I think, because they didn’t appreciate our coverage of their controversy. Anyway, it’s their party and they can cry if they want to!

4:40 p.m. We are T-minus 20 minutes until showtime. The actor/standup comic Jerrod Carmichael is set to host tonight’s show. It’s a particularly tough assignment in a year in which many expect the emcee to roast the eminently roastable HFPA in the way that Ricky Gervais used to — but in which the stakes are also incredibly high for the HFPA, given that the Globes are also auditioning for their future. Remember, the HFPA/NBC broadcasting deal with NBC ends when tonight’s ceremony does, and awards shows are no longer as appealing as they used to be to TV networks. Food for thought: the SAG Awards, which also recognize work in film and TV, but only actors, are essentially the Golden Globes without the other, less sexy categories, and without the controversy … and they haven’t been able to find a broadcasting partner this year!
