Golden Globes Will Get Second Screen Help from Celebs on Twitter

By: Josh Wolford - January 10, 2013

This Sunday, at the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards, Twitter wants you to have a second screen experience by following the show via celebrity tweets.

If fans choose to “tune in” to Twitter, they can get behind-the-scenes updates from nearly two dozen stars who will be live-tweeting everything – from the red carpet to backstage.

“Actors, directors, style icons and other VIPs will be live-tweeting to share inside experiences from on the red carpet, in the audience, backstage, and sometimes watching along on their couch. With the dinner party setting of the Golden Globes, the awards show is known for providing fans a unique glimpse of TV and film’s most talented stars. Following along on Twitter is like having a seat at the table, being a part of the conversation with your favorite celebrities,” says Twitter.

Some of the celebrities that are “Twitter-sanctioned” to live-tweet the ceremony include Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sofia Vergara, Hayden Panettiere, Omar Epps, and Maria Menounos. Of course, if you look around Twitter you should be able to find plenty of other stars on insiders to fill up your second screen experience.

You can head on over to the Twitter blog to see their complete list of Golden Globe tweeting stars.

Twitter asks that you engage with the Golden Globes by using the hashtags #goldenglobes and #globesparty.
