New Twitter red carpet show promises immersive experience with access beyond televised red-carpet shows

The 74th Golden Globes red-carpet arrivals will be streaming live on Twitter on Jan. 8.

U.S. users of the social media network will be able to watch the stars arrive in front of the Beverly Hilton starting at 6 p.m. ET, before the show kicks off at 8 p.m. ET. The pre-show will feature interviews with nominees, presenters and other guests who will field questions sourced from Twitter users. Dick Clark Productions, which produces the awards show, will also produce the two-hour live stream.

The live stream can be seen on the Golden Globes official Twitter page, goldenglobes.twitter.com, or through Twitter Moments. Additionally, the show's Twitter account will continue featuring videos leading up to Sunday's show, including the red carpet rollout, a tour of the seating arrangements in the International Ballroom, and a first look at the building of the red carpet.

The stream will be hosted by  AJ Gibson, Jeannie Mai, Liza Koshy, Scott Mantz and Yvette Nicole Brown.

Fans can use the hashtag #GoldenGlobes to get in on the conversation live and using the hashtag will also generate a Golden Globe emoji. 

Fans can also follow live on Periscope, broadcasting from the Globes' video press room via NBC and the Golden Globes' channels.

“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is always searching for innovative ways and original tools to reach our audience wherever it is as Hollywood comes together on one night to celebrate the best in motion pictures and television — and Twitter is the recognized partner to help us expand our audience,” HFPA president Lorenzo Soria said Monday in a statement.

Immediately after the night's winners exit the stage after receiving their awards, they will be interviewed by HFPA members at the show's side stage interview position. The interview clips will then be posted to the Golden Globes' Twitter account.

The Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Jimmy Fallon, is set to air Sunday, Jan. 8, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
