The Golden Globe Awards is making an official return to television to honour the latest works of excellence in television and film. Hosted this year by Emmy Award-winning comedian Jerrod Carmichael, the 80th annual ceremony will be held next week at The Beverly Hilton hotel in California, and will definitely be more star-studded than the last.
The occasion comes after the award show's televised cancellation in 2022 due to controversies predominantly surrounding a lack of diversity among members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Globes' parent organisation, prompting criticism and boycott threats from celebrities including Scarlett Johannson and Tom Cruise. The HFPA has since reformed its code of professional and ethical conduct to increase its diversity standards with a new international voting class, as well as for-profit transparency with an added private sector following the organisation's transferred ownership to Eldridge Industries.
“We recognise the HFPA’s commitment to ongoing change and look forward to welcoming back the Golden Globes to NBC for its landmark 80th anniversary,” said NBC Universal entertainment chairman Francis Berwick in a September statement, reports Deadline.
The event takes place this year on Tuesday, 10 January at 8 pm. ET (1 am 11 January GMT). Ahead, see all the details surrounding the 80th annual ceremony, including how to tune in, and the most highly anticipated nominations and projected wins.
Who is presenting and performing?
According to HFPA, this year's presenters are current Globes nominees Ana de Armas and Jamie Lee Curtis, 2022 Globes winner Michaela Jaé Rodriguez of Pose, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, as well as comedians Tracy Morgan and Nicole Byer, and actors Billy Porter, Natasha Lyonne, Niecy Nash-Betts, Ana Gasteyer, and Colman Domingo.
Pianist, composer, and producer Chloe Flower is also set to perform at the in-person televised ceremony, and her Tuesday appearance will reportedly inspire the upcoming song, "Golden Hour."
Who are the projected winners?
Nods for Best Performance in a Motion Picture include nominees Austin Butler for his starring role in Elvis, Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe in Blonde, as well as Jamie Lee Curtis as IRS inspector Deirdre Beaubeirdre in Everything Everywhere All at Once.
HBO Max's The White Lotus received a buzzy nomination for Best Television Limited Series, with additional acting nods to Jennifer Coolidge (Tanya McQuoid) and first-time nominees Audrey Plaza (Harper Spiller) and F. Murray Abraham (Bert Di Grasso) for their supporting roles in its wildly popular second season set in Sicily. Another limited series likely to land the winning list this year is Netflix's crime fiction thriller, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, led by Evan Peters in a chilling starring performance as the late serial killer that created waves of memes on social media.
As previously announced, the two major award recipients at this year's ceremony are Eddie Murphy (Cecil B. DeMille Award) for his "outstanding contributions" to entertainment, as well as screenwriter Ryan Murphy (Carol Burnett Award) for his "lasting impact" on both the television industry and its audiences.
How can I watch?
This year's ceremony will be returning to broadcast on NBC (available with cable television in the US) and on the network's streaming platform, Peacock, which is accessible with its monthly premium plans and is available in the UK.
