HFPA



Awards season aficionados have a new date to circle in their calendars: The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has revealed the official air date for the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

The glitzy, boozy ceremony -- which honors the best in both film and television -- is set for Sunday, January 6, 2019 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Nominations will be announced on Thursday, December 6.

In addition to those dates, the HFPA announced its entire schedule of awards season events and deadlines (which you can see in full below). What fans don't know yet, however, is just where they'll be watching the Globes, since longtime television home NBC has yet to finalize contract renegotiations with the awards body.

According to Variety, the Peacock network and the HFPA are likely to come to terms on a new deal, though nothing is set in stone just yet (Deadline reports that both CBS and Fox are interested in making a bid for the show, but NBC is the current frontrunner). Once those details are hammered out, expect an announcement of Globes host to follow soon.

The 2018 ceremony served as the official launching pad of the Time's Up movement, where actresses wore black on the red carpet in solidarity. We're eager to see what the 2019 awards have in store for viewers.
