The Golden Globe Awards are accolades bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association beginning in January 1944, recognizing excellence in film, both American and International, and American television.
The annual ceremony at which the awards are presented is normally held every January and is a major part of the film industry's awards season, which culminates each year in the Academy Awards. The eligibility period for the Golden Globes corresponds to the calendar year (i.e. January 1 through December 31). The 77th Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best in film and television in 2019, was held on January 5, 2020.
