The Golden Globes’ abandoned red carpet has been heavily dusted off for its 2023 comeback.
The annual celebration of film and TV is hosting its 80th anniversary ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel today, and it’s certainly an upgrade on last year’s event, which saw the show reduced to a streamed slide show without a host or a red carpet after NBC dropped the broadcast and celebrities boycotted the event over corruption and racism claims.
But the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) – the organisation that governs the event – has promised Wednesday’s gala will be “Hollywood’s Party of the Year”.
The ceremony is currently underway, you can follow live updates here. But first, we kicked off festivities on the red carpet.
