You won’t need Twitter or Facebook to keep up with the Golden Globes this year, just the friendly voice of Alexa from Amazon. The popular assistant will help keep you up-to-date on all of the big winners from the event, and will even tell you who is up for an award in each category this year. You even have time to grab a few Echo Dots for your awards party (starting at $49 at Amazon).
The 75th annual Golden Globes are set to air on Sunday, on NBC, and Alexa already has her picks ready to go (hint: they can also be found on Amazon Prime Video). As for the real-time updates, Amazon stated that Alexa will know the winners within seconds of them being announced, she’s just that quick. Just try saying, “Alexa, who won Best Picture drama?” We tested out Amazon’s little prediction machine and she had quite a few sassy responses, but we won’t spoil any of them for you. If you want to try-out a few of them for yourself, we’ve left a list of questions you can ask you Alexa at home.
Try asking: “Alexa, who is going to win a Golden Globe?”; “Alexa, who do you think will win a Golden Globe for Best Drama series?”; “Alexa, who do you think will win a Golden Globe for best Comedy or Musical?”; or “Alexa, who is going to win best motion picture?”.
If you rather get some 2018 Golden Globes Info via Alexa try asking “Alexa, who are the Golden Globes nominees?”; “Alexa, when are the Golden Globes airing?”; “Alexa, what channel will the Golden Globes be on?”; or “Alexa, who is hosting the golden globes?”.
Earlier this week NBC confirmed the first list of presenters for the Golden Globes, which includes Gal Gadot and Greta Gerwig. As we reported earlier, Seth Meyers will host the ceremony, which is set to air on January 7, 2018. The event will broadcast LIVE coast-to-coast on NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Previously announced, Golden Globe-nominee Oprah Winfrey will be the recipient of the 2018 Cecil B. DeMille Award. Produced by dick clark productions (dcp) in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 236 countries worldwide and are one of the few awards ceremonies to include both motion picture and television achievements.
