The 81st Golden Globe Awards is set to be a dazzling event, marking the beginning of the awards season and boasting a new home on CBS in 2024. The Golden Globe Awards have long been known as one of the most-watched award shows, second only to the Oscars. It made its own place in the awards world with its sarcastic tone and focus on flashy movie categories. Even though there were problems, the show stayed important and continued to draw millions of people until recently.

A turning point has been reached with the HFPA becoming a more varied group, with over 300 members around the world. The voting group, which used to be small but important, was criticized for not being diverse enough and for having ethics issues. The new system tries to make sure everyone is fairly represented and get rid of problems from the past.

As the anticipation builds, it’s crucial to know how and where you can catch the ceremony, especially for those eager to witness the glamorous celebration of film and television.

What’s New with the Golden Globes?

Overcoming Challenges

After previous controversies, CBS has taken over as home of the 81st Golden Globe Awards, marking a major change. Due in large part to an absence of diversity, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) had a membership problem. The show returned in January 2023, but only after a year of adjustments including the inclusion of minority journalists, according to a probationary arrangement with NBC.

Structural Changes

In a bold move, billionaire Todd Boehly dissolved the HFPA, reinventing the Golden Globes as a for-profit organization. This transformation, alongside acquisitions by Boehly’s Eldridge Industries and Dick Clark Productions, brings a fresh perspective to the prestigious awards.

New Award Categories

The addition of a stand-up comedy award showcases the event’s commitment to diversity, with nominees like Chris Rock, Amy Schumer, and Ricky Gervais. This expansion reflects a broader scope and inclusivity in recognizing outstanding talent.

Who is the host of ‘Golden Globes’ 2024?
