The Golden Globes are one of the biggest movies and TV award ceremonies in US Television, only dwarfed by the Oscars.
If you’re outside the US then you’ll hear a lot about the Golden Globes because most of the nominees for both movies and TV shows are people and names you’ll have heard of.
However, watching the Golden Globes outside the US can be a real problem. Most countries don’t show the awards and the US Networks that do show them are locked down tighter than Fort Knox.
There is however a sneaky little trick that will allow you to watch the entire 2019 Golden Globes in any country.
So whether you’re an American travelling abroad or you just love to see the stars then keep on reading as I’ll show you how you can watch the 2019 Golden Globes outside the US.
