When the Academy pushed back the ABC Oscar telecast by two months to April 25, 2021, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association grabbed the original Oscar date of February 28 for their 78th Golden Globes ceremony, to be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Now the organization has laid out their awards timetable.
The deadline to submit both film and television entries for Golden Globes award consideration is November 30, 2020. And while the nominations will be unveiled on February 3, 2021, the eligibility period for English-language and foreign-language motion pictures has been extended to include motion pictures released through February 28, 2021.
The February 28, 2021 ceremony will air live coast to coast 5-8 p.m. PT/8-11 p.m. ET on NBC from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif. And the winners will have an impact on Oscar nomination voting, which begins March 5 and ends March 10.
To be eligible, television programs must still air before December 31, 2020. Any television program released in 2021 will be eligible for the 2022 Golden Globes. The deadline to submit both film and television entries for Golden Globe award consideration is November 30, 2020.
Produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 territories worldwide.
