Live from the Red Car­pet: The 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Mon­day, 10am, E

FOR view­ers who love Hol­ly­wood glitz, this is the show for you. Launched in 1944, the awards for ex­cel­lence in film and tele­vi­sion are judged by 93 mem­bers of the Hol­ly­wood For­eign Press As­so­ci­a­tion. Switch on at 9am and you can see the stars — in­clud­ing He­len Mir­ren, He­lena Bon­ham Carter, Ju­lia LouisDrey­fus, Jes­sica Lange, Rob Lowe, John Voight, Kevin Spacey (above, in House of Cards), Bryan Cranston, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks and Michael Sheen — walk the red car­pet in all their fin­ery. Then move in­side the Bev­erly Hil­ton in LA for four hours of the award cer­e­mony, tele­vised to 167 coun­tries and hosted by co­me­di­ans Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. An­nounced a month ago, the nom­i­nees in the 25 cat­e­gories raised some eye­brows. Home­land, Bor­gen, The Killing and Sons of Anarchy, for ex­am­ple, didn’t rate a men­tion de­spite each se­ries com­mand­ing a strong in­ter­na­tional fol­low­ing. House of Cards, Break­ing Bad, Down­ton Abbey, The Good Wife and Mas­ters Of Sex are in a tight race for best TV drama se­ries. On the big screen, our Cate Blanchett ( Blue Jas­mine) is up against San­dra Bul­lock ( Grav­ity), Judi Dench ( Philom­ena), Emma Thomp­son ( Sav­ing Mr Banks) and Kate Winslet ( La­bor Day) for best ac­tress in a movie. Sur­pris­ingly, The But­ler failed to get a men­tion.
