Facebook to live stream Golden Globes pre-show

Facebook announced that it has signed a deal with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and Dick Clark Productions to live stream the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards red-carpet pre-show, next Sunday, January 7, in California.
This way, the social network has replaced Twitter as exclusive official live streaming platform for the red carpet event. The two-hour pre-show will be available on the Golden Globes Facebook page from 6-8 p.m. ET. According to Variety, 360-degree videos will be captured from the red carpet and throughout the pre-show and distributed on the Golden Globes’ Facebook page. The HFPA also will share exclusive red-carpet and backstage content on Facebook and Instagram.
“We always aim to create unique experiences which bring communities together, and partaking in the kickoff of award season in conjunction with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is a demonstration of our commitment to bring fans together through entertainment they enjoy,” said Sibyl Goldman, Facebook’s head of Entertainment Partnerships.
