The Most Social Golden Globes

US-ENTERTAINMENT-FILM-GOLDEN GLOBES

Facebook and Instagram will play major roles during the 72nd annual Golden Globes awards Sunday night.

Deadline Hollywood reports the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has reached an agreement with the social network, which will result in:

The Facebook Lounge, a standalone booth on the red carpet where celebrities can record video messages answering fans questions, which will then appear on the Facebook pages for the Golden Globes, NBC and the Today show. Golden Globes winners will be photographed backstage by fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth, and those images will be shared to the Golden Globes Instagram account, with some being incorporated into NBC’s broadcast.

Twitter has won a technical Emmy. It was chosen for “Innovation in improving engagement around television in social media.” The award was presented at CES today.

An Engineering Emmy Award is bestowed upon an individual, company or organization for developments in engineering that are either so extensive an improvement on existing methods, or so innovative in nature, that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.
