Golden Globes return to NBC
Why it matters: The impact of the scandals plaguing the Hollywood Foreign Press Association over the past two years will be tested by whether viewers and audiences tune in and engage with the program.
The big picture: The awards, now in their 80th year, returned to the Beverly Hilton Tuesday night with a glitzy red carpet that gained lots of traction on social media.
Of note: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a former actor and comedian, declared in a pre-recorded video message at the Globes that the war against Russia's invading forces "is not over" yet, but "the tide is turning."
What we're watching: Hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael, the show will likely serve as a litmus test for the hottest films ahead of the Oscars in March.
