Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh would look like an odd pair of co-hosts at first glance. Though they have not shared screen space together, the surprise duo had viewers cheering for them after their September 2018's Emmy presentation. Their repartee and humour brought in a fresh change and the two actors gave the HFPA something to think about. “That made us sort of look at each other and say, ‘Screw it. Let’s give it a shot and see what happens," Samberg told USA TODAY.

Where is the Golden Globes Awards taking place?

The three-hour ceremony kicks off at Los Angeles' historic Beverly Hilton but the ever-important fashion pre-game starts early on the Golden Globe Facebook page and "E! Live From the Red Carpet" with Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic, confirmed E!Online.

What time does the Golden Globes Awards ceremony start?

The ceremony will begin in the US on 6 January in the US on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 pm PT. However in India, the timings roughly translate to Monday, 7 January at 7:30am IST and will be aired Colors Infinity, Comedy Central India, and Vh1 India. In case, the live show cannot be viewed in the morning, there is a repeat telecast at 9pm IST later on the same day.

How do I watch the ceremony online? 

There are no specific links which viewers may use for live-streaming the event but they may choose to tune into Colors Infinity, Comedy Central India, and Vh1 India through their mobiles and log into the live TV apps given by the internet service providers such as Airtel TV, JioTV, and Vodafone Play.
