Your 2021 Golden Globes broadcast snack pack with M-Net and E! scheduling details.

by Thinus Ferreira

M-Net will once again bring America's 78th Golden Globe Awards to viewers in South Africa and across sub-Saharan Africa as a live broadcast very early on Monday morning 1 March, and again later during prime prime, with live pre-coverage shown on E!

The 78th Golden Globe Awards, as chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will award statues to the American television of 2020, as well as film in 2020 and early 2021, and will be shown as a live broadcast on M-Net Movies 1 (DStv 104) on Monday morning from 03:00 (South African time).

The 78th Golden Globes will again be shown during late prime time on M-Net (DStv 101) on Monday night at 22:30. 

This year's Golden Globes - smaller and more "intimate" than before due to the Covid-19 pandemic will be the first "bi-coastal ceremony" with Tina Fey anchoring and hosting from the Rainbow Room in The Rockefeller Center in New York, and Amy Poehler anchoring the ceremony from the Golden Globes' usual eat-laugh-drink-and-be-merry home of The Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles.

It will be the 4th time since 2013 that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are co-hosting the Golden Globes, but this time they won't share a stage. 

This year The Golden Globes and the HFPA received criticism over some controversial nominations and its absence of any black members over the past two decades that it said it would correct.

The 2021 Golden Globes pre-coverage will start on E! (DStv 124) at 01:00 on Monday morning until 03:00 when the ceremony starts on M-Net Movies 1.

Giuliana Rancic will be hosting E! Live from the Red Carpet: The 2021 Golden Globes, produced by Den of Thieves on E! with co-host Karamo. Interviews will be done live from the Beverly Hilton. This coverage will repeat on Monday at 15:25 and 22:00.

Joining Giuliana will be E's style correspondent Zanna Roberts Rassi and Erin Lim, the presenter of E!'s The Rundown.
