The Golden Globe Awards are given out annually for excellence in film and television. The voters are the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association: journalists and photographers who report on the American entertainment industry for predominantly non-American media. The first ceremony was held in 1944, though it only had awards for film. Television awards were added in 1956, with more categories added as time went on. Since 1973, the award ceremony has been held in January of each year (except in 2021, when it was delayed to February 28 due to the COVID-19 pandemic).

As far as film is concerned, a look at the Golden Globe winners generally tends to give a good idea of who will win at the Academy Awards, the ceremony of which is usually held the following month.

As of 2019, the Golden Globes gives out the following twenty-seven awards each year:

In 2021, it was announced that NBC would not air the following year's Golden Globe Awards as a result of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's failure to enact reforms akin to other awards organizations, sparking a boycott from numerous actors (including Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Tom Cruise) and organizations (including Netflix, Amazon and WarnerMedia). Though the nominations were announced on December 13, 2021, it was revealed that the announcement of winners would be done on social media instead. In 2023, the show returned to NBC as the HFPA was sold to investor Todd Boehly the year prior.
