golden-globesWhile it is the first Sunday of the semester and the day of the SAC CAB fair, all the real important people of the world know the true importance of this day.

While there are SO many ways to celebrate this glorious event, there are several things that every viewer must do to correctly experience the Golden Globes. Because nothing is more awkward than being the only person who doesn’t know what dress Taylor Swift wore.

BEFORE THE SHOW:

Make sure to fill up on all the important award show foods. Extra points if you eat mini hotdogs or carrots with hummus. Be sure that you are full, because you do not want to get the munchies mid-speech.

THE RED CARPET:

Basically the Holy Grail for all those who enjoy celebrities, glamour and overdone fashion. However, be warned that remembering every single outfit is super difficult. Make yourself a cheat sheet of the best outfits so you can impress your friends tomorrow in the Heal Fam Stu Cen (or whatever you call it).

THE SHOW:

Ah, the main event. So many momentous things tend to occur during the 3+ hours when Tina and Amy grace the stage for the world to see. The jokes, the love, the selfies…it is all so glamorous. Be sure to cheer for your favorite stars (from the comfort of your couch) and get involved in ridiculous Twitter awards. As always, #teamJLaw.

AFTER THE SHOW:

The fallout, it is basically like the day after Christmas. The bright side? You can go to bed looking forward to hearing all about the after parties the next day. You won’t be able to see them, but it will basically be like you were there.

OH, and for reference here is what you have to look forward to:

Best Motion Picture (Drama):

Boyhood, Foxcatcher, The Imitation Game, Selma, The Theory of Everything

Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy):

Into The Woods, Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, St. Vincent, Pride

Best TV Series (Drama):

Downton Abbey, The Affair, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, The Good Wife

Best TV Series (Musical or Comedy):

Orange is the New Black, Girls, Jane the Virgin, Transparent, Silicon Valley

Of course there are more categories, so check those out here.

More importantly be sure to watch the Golden Globes tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC. It will surely be a show to remember.
