he 81st Golden Globes: Jan. 7, 2024

As 2023 comes to a close, the 2024 award season is right around the corner. With the celebration of music, writing, acting, and film technology, the Golden Globes is one of many awards that gives accolades to the most deserving of each category. The Globes were be presented by Comedian Jo Koy on Jan. 7, 2024, at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CST, live on CBS, and streaming on Paramount+. 

 The Golden Globe Awards are a ceremony meant to present accolades to certain projects and people who expressed excellence in filmmaking, acting, and television production. First presented in 1944 and annually ever since, they present these honors to foreign and domestic projects. They also donate to entertainment-aligned charities, give out scholarships, and help in entertainment efforts, such as the restoration of old films. 

 This upcoming show follows June 2023 when the organization Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the non-profit organization that had founded and controlled the Globe Awards since its inception, controversially disbanded. Controversy came when it was revealed in 2021, that there were no Black voters among the selected journalists who voted on the winners of the awards. With problems arising due to lack of diversity and unethical practices, a reorganization was called, HFPA was quickly dissolved, and the Golden Globes assets were sold to Eldridge Industries. 

 The 2022 Globes were not broadcast due to the controversy within, however, they were brought back to television in 2023. The ‘24 award show shows promise in its awards in this new era of the Globes, especially following the end of both the writers’ and actors’ strike of 2023. Though promotion did not widely occur during this period, many films and television series were still produced.
