In 1943, a group of writers banded together to form the Hollywood Foreign Press Association , and by creating a generously distributed award called the Golden Globe Award, they now play a significant role in film marketing. The 1st Golden Globe Awards , honoring the best achievements in 1943 filmmaking , was held in January 1944, at the 20th Century-Fox studios. Subsequent ceremonies were held at various venues throughout the next decade, including the Beverly Hills Hotel , and the Hollywood
Roosevelt Hotel .

In 1950, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
Hollywood Foreign Press Association
made the decision to establish a special honorary award to recognize outstanding contributions to the entertainment industry. Recognizing its subject as an international figure within the entertainment industry, the first award was presented to director and producer, Cecil B. DeMille
Cecil B. DeMille
. The official name of the award thus became the Cecil B. DeMille
Cecil B. DeMille
Award .

In 1963, the Miss Golden Globe concept was introduced. In its inaugural year, two Miss Golden Globes were named, one for film and one for television. The two Miss Golden Globes named that year were Eva Six (of the films Operation Bikini and Beach Party ) and Donna Douglas (of television's The Beverly Hillbillies
The Beverly Hillbillies
), respectively.

In 2009, the Golden Globe statuette was redesigned (but not for the first time in its history). The New York firm Society Awards collaborated for a year with the Hollywood
Foreign Press Association to produce a statuette that included a unique marble and enhanced the statuette’s quality and gold content. It was unveiled at a press conference at the Beverly Hilton prior to the show.

Revenues generated from the annual ceremony have enabled the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
Hollywood Foreign Press Association
to donate millions of dollars to entertainment-related charities, as well as funding scholarships and other programs for future film and television professionals. The most prominent beneficiary being the Young Artist Awards , presented annually by the Young Artist Foundation , established in 1978 by late Hollywood
Foreign Press member, Maureen Dragone to recognize and award excellence of young Hollywood
performers under the age of 21, and to provide scholarships for young artists who may be physically and/or financially challenged.


The broadcast of the Golden Globe Awards, telecast to 167 countries worldwide, generally ranks as the third most-watched awards show each year, behind only the Oscars and the Grammy Awards . Until Ricky Gervais hosted the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards Ceremony in 2010, the award ceremony was one of two major Hollywood
award ceremonies (the other being the Screen Actors Guild Awards ) that did not have a regular host; every year a different presenter introduced the ceremony at the beginning of the broadcast. Gervais returned to host the 68th and 69th Golden Globe Awards the next two years. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the 70th, 71st and 72nd Golden Globe Awards in 2015. The Golden Globe Awards' theme song, which debuted in 2012, was written by Japanese musician and songwriter Yoshiki Hayashi .


On January 7, 2008, it was announced that due to the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike , the 65th Golden Globe Awards would not be telecast live. The ceremony was faced with a threat by striking writers to picket the event and by actors threatening to boycott the ceremony rather than cross picket lines . The Hollywood
Foreign Press Association was forced to adopt another approach for the broadcast.

originally had exclusive broadcast rights to the ceremonies, but on January 11, HFPA President Jorge Camara announced there would be no restrictions placed on media outlets covering the January 13 press conference, announcing the winners at 6:00pm PST. As a result, E! , CNN
, the TV Guide Network
TV Guide Network
and KNBC-TV , the network's Los Angeles owned-and-operated affiliate, aired the 31-minute event, emanating from the Grand Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel live, leaving NBC to fill the hour from 9:00–10:00pm ET with announcements, made after-the-fact by Access Hollywood
hosts Billy Bush and Nancy O\'Dell . The remaining hours of programming, set aside for the ceremonies by the network, were filled with a special two-hour edition of Dateline , hosted by Matt Lauer
Matt Lauer
, that included film clips, interviews with some of the nominees and commentary from comedian Kathy Griffin
Kathy Griffin
and the panelists from Football Night in America .

for participating in the scandal. Subsequently, NBC
refused to broadcast the ceremony from 1968 until after 1974.


In 1982, Pia Zadora won a Golden Globe in the category "New Star of the Year in a Motion Picture – Female " for her performance in Butterfly , over such competition as Elizabeth McGovern
Elizabeth McGovern
(Ragtime ) and Kathleen Turner
Kathleen Turner
( Body Heat ). Accusations were made that the Foreign Press Association members had been bought off. Zadora's husband, multimillionaire Meshulam Riklis , flew voting members to his casino, the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas , which gave the appearance that they voted for Zadora to repay this. Riklis also invited voting members to his house for a lavish lunch and a showing of the film. He also spent a great deal on advertising. Furthermore, Zadora had made her film debut some 17 years earlier as a child performer in Santa Claus Conquers the Martians .


The nominations for the 2011 Globes drew initial skepticism, as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
Hollywood Foreign Press Association
nominated The Tourist in its Best Musical/Comedy category, although it was originally advertised as a spy thriller, and also one of the most panned films of the season with host Ricky Gervais even joking to main star of the film Johnny Depp if he had seen the movie. Rumors then surfaced that Sony, the distributor of The Tourist, had influenced Globes voters with an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas, culminating in a concert by Cher


Actor and filmmaker Gary Oldman
Gary Oldman
is a longtime detractor of the Golden Globes . As of 2017, Oldman has never been nominated for a Golden Globe Award in his thirty years of acclaimed film work.
