Facebook has replaced Twitter to livestream Golden Globes’ red carpet pre-show slated for January 7.

“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association [HFPA] announced the two-hour event would be exclusively available on the Golden Globes Facebook page, starting from 6pm ET on Sunday, January 7 [3am on Monday in the UAE],” TechCrunch reported on Wednesday.

The Golden Globes Facebook Page will post exclusive live footage, including 360-degree videos captured at the event along with other backstage content.

“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,” Sibyl Goldman, head of Facebook’s Entertainment Partnerships, said in a statement.

The @goldenglobes Instagram account will offer similar exclusive footage shared in real-time.

“The main @Instagram Story will be hosted by one of the red carpet hosts, Laura Marano,” the report added.
