Golden Globe Award

The Golden Globe Awards are awards given out each year during a formal dinner, for motion pictures and television programs. Run by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) since 1944, these are usually regarded as the third most publicized awards for movies and television, after the Academy Awards (for film) and Emmy Awards (for television). The awards are voted on by a group of about 90 international journalists working in Hollywood, California.

The Golden Globes are touted as the preludes to the Oscars. Until 2003, the awards had been scheduled so that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences sent out their ballots for the Academy Awards only days after the Golden Globe award winners are announced.

The HFPA is sometimes criticized: In 1996, a former HFPA President founded the International Press Academy as a more open, broader-based, "less easily manipulated" operation than the HFPA.

Award categories

First given in 1944, the Golden Globe awards were limited to motion pictures until 1956 when awards for television were added.
