Worried about the lack of people live-tweeting the Golden Globes Jan. 13, Twitter convinced 20 celebrities to do it.
In a somewhat star-studded event, the microblogging site said Thursday they managed to corral a group of celebrities ranging from the A-list (Julia Louis-Dreyfus!) to D-list (Audrina Patridge?) to bring fans “even closer to the show.”
“Following along on Twitter is like having a seat at the table, being a part of the conversation with your favorite celebrities,” the site said.
The mix of stars, musicians, and writers scheduled to participate include Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara, Nashville actress Hayden Panettiere, and Megan Hilty from NBC’s Smash. Apparent comedian David Spade, Retta (Donna from Parks and Recreation), and Omar Epps will also live-tweet the show.
Project Runway‘s chief critic Nina Garcia, E! host George Kotsiopoulos, and Vanity Fair editor Krista Smith will provide an expected swell of catty insights. Patridge, a failed VH1 reality star, will also live-tweet, but we’re expecting it to be a stream of messages reminding people she’s still alive.
Twitter also announced the official hashtags for the show are #goldenglobes and #globesparty, so if you needed a reminder of how normal your life is, follow those. The show is hosted by funny ladies and perennial Tumblr favorites Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
It starts at 8pm ET on NBC.
