Facebook begins 2018 with an exclusive deal with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Prods and becomes the official live streaming platform for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards red-carpet show on Jan 7. The live stream will be available on the company’s Facebook page while Twitter covered the same, the previous year.
As part of the partnership, the red carpet event and the pre-show will have 360° videos distributed on the Facebook page while HFPA will share exclusive red-carpet and backstage content on Facebook and Instagram.
The media partners for the event will also have the privilege to use Facebook and Instagram Live to share photos, videos, and moments.
HFPA president Meher Tatna quoted, “We’re thrilled to partner with Facebook and give viewers a front-row seat to the red carpet that can’t be found anywhere else. We hope to enhance the overall viewing experience so fans at home can feel they’re enjoying the show alongside their favorite stars at Hollywood’s biggest party of the year.”
