77th Annual Golden Globe Awards from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. The three-hour telecast hosted by Ricky Gervais will air live on NBC coast to coast Sunday, January 5, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. EST/5:00 p.m. PST.
The 77th annual Golden Globe Awards officially kick off awards season in Hollywood on Sunday, January 5, at 8 pm Eastern / 5 pm Pacific. The ceremony will air live on NBC, with British comic Ricky Gervais returning as host for a record-breaking fifth time.The Golden Globes are traditionally held on the first Sunday of the year and mark the beginning of a lengthy awards season in the entertainment industry, but the season is shorter than usual in 2020, with the Globes airing just over one month before the Oscars. Administered by the somewhat mysterious Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the awards are notable for honoring both film and television instead of sticking to one medium like the Oscars or the Emmys, providing a rare chance for actors on screens big and small to mingle.

Another Golden Globes trademark is that the ceremony is usually a lot looser than other awards show, with free-flowing alcohol seen in attendees’ hands throughout the night. The Globes are also considered to be harder to predict than the other Hollywood honors, as the HFPA is a much smaller voting body comprised of international journalists, not nominees’ peers like the motion picture and television academies (which vote on the Oscars and the Emmys, respectively). These details have given the HFPA a bit of a bad reputation within the entertainment industry. These idiosyncrasies make the Globes either more exciting or more frustrating to watch, depending on how you feel about an unconventional array of winners and tipsy award speeches.
