If this year’s stellar line-up of nominees isn’t reason enough to tune in, here are five more things you can expect from this year’s show:
1) Adele is back!
The Grammy-winning superstar is expected to make her first official public appearance since giving birth back in October. She’s a favorite to win the Globe’s Best Original Song category thanks to her title tune in the James Bond blockbuster “Skyfall.” She’s also nominated for an Oscar, and if the Academy doesn’t get her on stage to perform it’ll be insane.
2) Newly single Jennifer Lawrence has two dates
“Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence, a heavy favorite to win Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her sterling work in “Silver Linings Playbook,” recently broke up with her “X-Men” co-star Nicholas Hoult. So she told E! News she’s bringing her parents as her dates.
3) Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be the hosts with the mosts
Two of the reasons we’re extra excited for this year’s Globes? Comedy geniuses Fey and Poehler, who will attempt to define their own hosting style in the wake of Ricky Gervais’ memorable stints. We’re pretty sure they’re gonna be great.
4) Ben Affleck will be there, and so will Tony Mendez
Within just a few days, “Argo” director Ben Affleck was snubbed by the Oscars and then honored by the Critics Choice Awards. Now he’s in the running for a Best Director Globe (against Kathryn Bigelow and Quentin Tarantino, also snubbed by Oscar, and Oscar nominees Steven Spielberg and Ang Lee). But we’re even more curious to see Mendez, the real-life CIA agent Affleck plays in “Argo.” Actors are cool, but not as cool as CIA agents.
5) The list of presenters is out of control
What kind of crazy awards show has presenters including Meryl Streep, Kristen Wiig, Christian Bale, Sacha Baron Cohen, Megan Fox, Lea Michele, Robert Pattinson, Bradley Cooper, George Clooney, Will Ferrell, Nathan Fillion, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger? Only the Golden Globes.
Plus, they serve drinks to the celebrities during the show. It doesn’t get better than that.
