You may need to set an extra long extension on your DVR recording of the Golden Globe Awards: This Sunday’s telecast could be bumped to a later start time if one of the NFL Wild Card games, which airs before the Globes ceremony on NBC, goes long, our sister site Variety reports.
The Seattle Seahawks vs. Philadelphia Eagles matchup is slated to start at 4:40 pm ET, while the awards show is scheduled to air live at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT. Should the game go over, NBC will simply broadcast the Globes ceremony in its entirety after the game concludes.
The network found itself in a similar position last year, but just barely averted a delay when the NFL Wild Card face-off between the Eagles and the Chicago Bears ended at around 7:54 pm.
