Since 1994, it has recognized excellence in American and International film and television.
These awards were started back by the Hollywood Foreign Press association in 1943, which is 78 years ago. These awards originated in the United States. The first awards were presented on January 20, 1944.
This annual awards ceremony at which awards are usually held every year in January has been a significant part of the film industry awards season. It culminates in the Academy Awards each year, although the golden globes’ relevance has declined in recent years. The eligibility period for the Golden Globes awards corresponds from January 1 through December 31.
The Hollywood Foreign Press association, founded in 1943 in Los Angeles-based foreign journalists, seeks to develop a better-organized process of gathering and distributing news to non-US markets. One major endeavor was establishing similar academy awards to honor film achievement. 1 St Golden Globe awards, which honored the best achievements in 1943 filmmaking, were held in January 1944 at the 20 th century fox studios.
Subsequent ceremonies were hosted at multiple venues throughout the following decades, including the Beverly Hills hotel and Hollywood Roosevelt hotel.
In 1950, HFPA established special honorary awards for recognizing outstanding contributions in the entertainment industry. Recognizing it as a subject by an international figure in the entertainment industry, it was first presented to the director and producer Cecil B. Demille.
The official name of the award became Cecil B. Demille.
The 13th Golden Globes award, held in February 1956, was the first Golden Globe in television achievements. The three permanent television award categories, Best tv series, best tv actor, and best tv actress, then made their debut in 19 th Golden Globe awards in March 1962.
Beginning in 1963, the trophies commenced being handed out by one or more persons referred to as ‘ Miss Golden Globe ‘ as a title renamed on January 5, 2018, to Golden Globes ambassador.
In 2009, the Golden Globe statuette was remade. However, this has happened before. The New York Firm society awards a partnership for a year with the HFPA. It was to produce a statuette that includes unique marble, thereby enhancing the statue’s quality content.
It was unveiled at a press conference at Beverley Hilton before the show.
The Carol Burnett award was made as a television counterpart to Cecil B .Demille.award, named after its first recipient in 2019, actress and comedian Carol Burnett.
The most prominent beneficiary is the Young artist award presented by the Young artist foundation. It was established in 1978 by Hollywood Foreign Press member Maureen Dragone to recognize the award excellence of young Hollywood performers. These performers are under 21 and provide scholarships for young artists who may be physically or financially challenged.

The second example – Was the Tourist for Best musical/comedy nominations in 2011
Third example –Pua Zadora was awarded ” New Star of the year in Motion Picture ” in 1982.
In conclusion, the Golden Globe awards were great fun for entertainment purposes, awarding the best picture and maintaining healthy competition.
