The 75th annual Golden Globes kicks off Sunday night at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. Eastern. Late-night host Seth Meyers hosts this year’s festivities live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

Follow along as Breitbart News provides up-to-the-minute winners, commentary, and analysis from the Big Hollywood team.

Things to watch for tonight:

– Actresses are expected to wear black tonight to protest the ongoing sexual harassment scandal. Many will also be wearing #Time’sUp pins, to raise awareness of the industry’s newly-created legal fund to deal with harassment.

– The Best Picture race is wide open this year. The Shape of Water leads all films with seven nominations, but faces stiff competition in the major categories from Streep-Spielberg-Hanks political drama The Post, Christopher Nolan’s WWII epic Dunkirk, gay romantic drama Call Me By Your Name, and Martin McDonaugh’s Frances McDormand-starrer Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

– Gary Oldman is the frontrunner to take home Best Actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while McDormand could earn her first Best Actress Globe for her performance in Three Billboards, after five previous nominations. Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird will also likely take home some trophies, with Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf the slight frontrunners in their respective acting categories.

– On the TV side, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale looks to repeat its success from last year’s Emmys, but goes up against some serious heavyweights in the Best TV Series – Drama category, including The Crown, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, and This Is Us. Handmaid’s star Elisabeth Moss will win Best Actress. HBO’s Big Little Lies, also a big Emmys winner last year, is a lock to take home some awards. Perhaps the most intriguing category is the Best TV Series – Comedy category, where freshman Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel could score an upset over Black-ish, Master of None, SMILF, and the rebooted Will & Grace. My money’s on Maisel.

– Oprah Winfrey is set to accept the night’s honorary Cecil B. DeMille award. Last year’s winner Meryl Streep memorably used her acceptance speech to attack then-President-elect Donald Trump, but it’s anyone’s guess what Winfrey might talk about during her speech. Barbra Streisand is rumored to be presenting Winfrey her award.

– Seth Meyers will try to thread the needle in his opening monologue, attempting to keep the show light and funny while also addressing the Harvey Weinstein-sized elephant in the room and keeping up a steady stream of Trump hate.

Latest updates at the top. All times Eastern.

Angelina Jolie stunned when she arrived on the red carpet earlier in a black version of Jean Harlow’s famous white gown in “Dinner at Eight.” Jolie’s dress may be the best look of the night, with black-feather cuffs on billowing, sheer sleeves to match perfectly with her dark, tousled hair and wing-tipped eyeliner.

8:25 p.m. – Zac Efron introduces a clip of The Greatest Showman.

8:17 p.m. – Sam Rockwell wins Best Supporting Actor for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Most observers thought Christopher Plummer was gonna take this one for the 11 days of work he did replacing Kevin Spacey in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World, but alas, no dice.

“There’s a new era underway and I can tell because it’s been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood.”

“For the male nominees in the room, this is the first time in three months it won’t be terrifying to hear your name read out loud.”

“We’re all here tonight courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press. A string of three words that could not have been better designed to infuriate our president. The only name that would make him angrier would be the Hillary Mexico Salad Association.”

“Don’t worry, Harvey Weinstein will be back in 20 years, when he’s the only one booed during the In Memoriam.”

7:55 p.m. – 5 minutes to showtime. It’s gonna be a long night.

7:41 p.m. – Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour:

So, every woman at the Golden Globes has decided to wear black to “protest” the sexual misconduct plaguing their industry. Let’s pause and appreciate the irony of this perfect example of the very same herd mentality that allowed this town to cover up the abuse for decades. They all decided this year to wear black to show they are protesting a sexual misconduct epidemic that they all previously decided they would not say anything about.

If the Hollywood sisterhood really wanted to be brave, they should have protested by staying home and showing their real strength by telling the studios, networks, and magazines to have fun trying to sell a red carpet gala with only dudes in tuxes.

(By the way, kudos to Rose McGowan for really protesting this b.s.)

7:35 p.m. – Binder Fashion Update: Actresses Diane Kruger and Margot Robbie arrived at the Gold Globes bringing their fashion A-game. Kruger donned a dramatic look with a sheer cape and criss-cross neckline, while Robbie wore a v-neck plunging gown that featured small puff-sleeves and silver embroidery cascading down the skirt.

7:22 p.m. – A group calling themselves the “Hollywood Handmaids” have apparently staged a protest outside the Peninsula Hotel (one of Harvey Weinstein’s reported favorites). The group is dressed in costumes from Hulu’s hit TV series The Handmaid’s Tale and are carrying a banner reading, “Silent No Longer.”

Handmaid’s is the favorite to repeat its big win at the Emmys and take home Best TV Series – Drama tonight.

6:29 p.m. – The Stranger Things kids are awesome. Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) does his best Chewbacca impression.

6:08 p.m. – Meryl Streep arrives alongside activist Aj-jen Poo.

“I think that people are aware now of a power imbalance, and it’s something that leads to abuse. It’s led to abuse in our own industry, and it’s led to abuse across the domestic workers’ field of work,” Streep told E! host Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.

“It’s in the military, it’s in Congress. It’s everywhere, and we want to fix that. And we feel sort of emboldened in this particular moment to stand together, in a thick black line.”

6:05 p.m. – Things are getting interesting (and awkward) already. Debra Messing has trashed E! for sexism directly to an E! News reporter working the red carpet.

“I’m wearing black to stand in solidarity with my sisters all over the globe, and I’m here to celebrate the rollout of this incredible initiative Time’s Up. We want diversity, we want intersectional gender parity, and equal pay,” Messing said.

But, she added: “I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-hosts the same as their male co-hosts. I miss Catt Sadler. We stand with her.”

“That’s something that could change tomorrow.”

6:00 p.m. – Hollywood’s best and brightest are already out in full force on the Globes red carpet. It looks like most actresses have kept to the all-black dress code as part of the protest against sexual harassment, and both men and women are wearing Time’s Up pins.

Stars who have already arrived include Alison Brie, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rachel Brosnahan, Milo Venitmiglia, the Stranger Things kids, and dozens more. Stay tuned for more arrival pics, and find more on all the arrivals from Breitbart’s John Binder here.
