Twitter live streamed the Golden Globes’ red carpet pre-show last year. If you thought that the deal would go to the microblogging network again this year, you’d be mistaken. Facebook has landed the exclusive rights to live stream the 2018 Golden Globes red carpet pre-show. It has been confirmed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and dick clark productions that the two-hour pre-show is going to be exclusively live streamed via the Golden Globes Facebook page.

The main awards show isn’t streamed online via Facebook or Twitter. Only the red carpet show where the celebrities are photographed and asked questions about their wardrobe. When Twitter live streamed the show last year, it teamed up with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to source questions from fans’ tweets.

Since the event is going to be live streamed on Facebook this year, fans’ questions will be sourced from the world’s largest social media network. Some exclusive live footage will also be posted on the Golden Globes Facebook Page.

This will include 360 degree videos recorded at the event as well as other backstage content. Similar footage will be shared in real-time on Instagram as well. Laura Marano, one of the red carpet hosts, is also going to host the main @Instagram Story.

“Facebook has had a long collaborative relationship with the entertainment community, and we’re thrilled to be able to extend that through our work with the Golden Globes,” said Sibyl Goldman, the head of entertainment partnerships at Facebook.
