The Golden Globes

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) has anounced the 78th annual Golden Globes will take place on February 28, 2021, which until recently had been the date of the Oscars ceremony.

The awards show, which usually takes place in early January and had not been dated until Monday’s (June 22) announcement, has joined others in a raft of rescheduling due to disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the Globes and the show will broadcast live from Beverly Hills.

In April the HFPA tweaked its rules in light of cinema closures to extend eligibility to films that launched first on a streaming service or a “television format”

In May the group extended the exception to cover foreign-language contenders.

The HFPA said it will provide further guidance on eligibility, voting period, and the timing of revised nominations in the coming weeks.

The Academy announced last week that the Oscars will take place on April 15. Bafta moved its ceremony to April 11, and the Spirit Awards are now set for April 14, preserving their tradition berth on the eve of the Oscars.
