The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), dick clark productions (dcp), and NBC announced today they will present the 2020 Golden Globe Awards on January 5, 2020. The 77th annual awards will be a day earlier than this year’s Golden Globes, which took place on January 6th.
Produced by dcp in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide and are one of the few awards ceremonies to include both motion picture and television achievements.
Licensing fees obtained from the Golden Globe Awards have enabled the HFPA to support over 80 nonprofit entertainment-related organizations, including educational institutions with scholarships to underrepresented students, film preservation organizations, journalistic organizations committed to freedom of speech, as well as organizations that support disaster relief and humanitarian crises.
NBC’s 2019 Golden Globes telecast, hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh (5.2 rating in adults 18-49, 18.6 million viewers overall) generated a 10-month high among all primetime entertainment programs, delivering the most viewers at that point for any non-sports telecast on a broadcast or cable network since the prior year’s Academy Awards (26.6 million on March 4, 2018). The 2019 telecast went up 4% year to year (5.0 vs. 5.2) while retaining 98% of last year’s total viewer average.
The HFPA Presents: Globes Red Carpet Live, the official red carpet pre-show for the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards, garnered over 3 million views.
