MUMBAI: Viacom18, kick-starting the year with a big bang, will showcase coveted movies and television awards – 77th Golden Globe Awards through its English entertainment channels. Hosted for the fifth time by the sensational Ricky Gervais for the record, the gala held at the Beverly Park, California will simulcast exclusively on Vh1, Comedy Central and Colors Infinity on Monday 06 January at 7:30 AM IST, with a repeat telecast at 9 PM.

Viacom18 head of programming, English entertainment Hashim Dsouza said, “Marking the start of 2020 looks to be a promising year for entertainment, as we step into another year and look forward to a year full of exciting shows, films and events. Considered as one of the most respected award ceremonies in the film and television industry, attended by the biggest names, the Golden Globes celebrates and commemorates the best of the year gone by. The popularity of international awards among Indian viewers is palpable and the epic showdown across categories in the 77th edition of the Golden Globes makes it a must-watch for fans. With viewers rooting for their favorites, films like Joker, The Irishman and shows like Chernobyl, Unbelievable and The Crown with multiple nominations, will surely go down to the wire making it almost impossible to predict the winners.”

The battle for Best Actor (Drama) will see Joaquin Phoenix (Joker) going up against Christian Bale (Ford Vs Ferrari), Adam Driver (Marriage Story), Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes), while Oscar-winner Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) goes up against Brian Cox (Succession), Tobias Menzies (The Crown), Billy Porter (Pose) and Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones).

But the competition in the Best Actress (Drama) category is much more fierce, with Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), Charlize Theron (Bombshell), Renée Zellweger (Judy), Saoirse Ronan (Little Woman) and Cynthia Erivo (Harriet). Also, lead pair of The Morning Show – Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston is nominated in the same category along with Olivia Colman (The Crown), Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) and Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies).

Carving a niche in the Hollywood industry and raking in box-office collections, Tom Hanks has multiple Oscars, Emmys and Golden Globe awards under his belt. At this year’s ceremony he will be bestowed upon the Cecil B. DeMille Award – a special and prestigious award for his outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment. Ellen DeGeneres will receive the coveted Carol Burnett Award named after the legendary Carol Burnett and presented annually to an honoree that has made outstanding contributions to television, on or off the screen.
