The first major award show of the season, the Globes are inconsistent as Oscar predictors, as the 90-odd international journalists who select the winners don't overlap at all with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voters. But with free-flowing Champagne, a relaxed atmosphere and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler once again at the helm, the show can be counted on to deliver its share of lively moments.

The Globes will air live on NBC at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. EST, from the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and whether you're looking for a second-screen experience or you can't catch the broadcast, you can follow all our coverage in real time below.
