TORONTO, Jan. 4 /CNW/ - Global's Entertainment Tonight and Entertainment Tonight Canada are kicking off 2011 in style with exclusive access to red carpets, behind-the-scenes action and awards season 'can't miss' moments.

"As the world's most trusted entertainment brand, ET and ET Canada will be at the top of every red carpet of the most coveted events this awards season," said Barbara Williams, SVP, Content, Shaw Media. "From the People's Choice Awards to the GRAMMYS® and the Oscars® , the buzz is building and our production teams are prepping to give viewers the most in-depth coverage possible."

On location in Hollywood, ET and ET Canada's #1 awards season reporting will include week-long lead up stories, in-person interviews and of course, next day wrap-up coverage. It all begins this Thursday with a behind-the-scenes look at the 37th Annual People's Choice Awards broadcast tomorrow evening, Wednesday, January 5 - 9pm ET/PT on Global. Now in its 37th year, the People's Choice Awards celebrate fan favourites in music, movies and television. Queen Latifah returns as Host and a slew of celebrities will be in attendance including Canadian teen sensation Justin Bieber, Robert Downey Jr., Steve Carell, Carrie Underwood and more.

Next, Cheryl Hickey and Rick Campanelli will be onsite in Beverly Hills for the 67th Annual Golden Globes on Sunday, January 16. Known for its breezy, laidback style, the Globes red carpet is consistently filled with the industry's biggest movers and shakers 'dressed to the nines' for the season's most exciting dinner party. With a whopping five Globe nominations, the always colourful cast of Glee is expected to walk the red carpet in addition to big name celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, Colin Firth and The Social Network's Jesse Eisenberg.

Then it's the prestigious 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday, January 30 - 8pm ET/PT. A top industry accolade, SAG Award nominees are selected by fellow actors and award recipients. ET and ET Canada will have A-Z coverage of the night and one-on-one interviews with the A-list attendees including actors from such nominated films as Black Swan, The Fighter, The Kids Are All Right, The King's Speech and The Social Network.

Barely catching their breath, the ET and ET Canada team is in the centre of the action again for the 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards airing live on Global Sunday, February 13 - 8pm ET/PT. The GRAMMYs honour the best in music so it's no surprise that Canadians Drake, Neil Young, Arcade Fire, Michael Bublé and Justin Bieber lead the pack with the most award nominations. ET Canada will be the only Canadian entertainment show granted access to the GRAMMY red carpet and Co-Hosts Cheryl Hickey and Rick Campanelli will report live for a pre-show special entitled - The GRAMMY Awards: ET Canada Live starting at 7pm ET/PT.

Finally, ET and ET Canada bring viewers the very best of the 83rd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, February 27, film's biggest night. From fashion mishaps and backstage jitters to VIP after parties, the country's most trusted entertainment news source will cover the Oscars and bring viewers the night's most memorable moments.

Entertainment Tonight airs weeknights at 7pm ET/PT followed by ET Canada at 7:30pm ET/PT on Global and 11pm ET/8pm PT on SLICE™. To catch up on special episodes and all the latest in entertainment news, please visit etcanada.com.
