NBC renews Golden Globe Awards contract through 2027

The Golden Globe Awards will stay on NBC for the next several years. NBC, which has the U.S. telecast of the show, has announced that the network has renewed its contract with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions to telecast the Golden Globe Awards through the year 2027. The eight-year contract renewal goes into effect for the 2019 Golden Globe Awards (the 76th annual ceremony), which takes place Jan. 6 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Nominations for the show will be announced Dec. 6. The nominations and awards are voted for by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

NBC has been the U.S. TV network for the Golden Globe Awards since 1993, the same year that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association partnered with Dick Clark Productions to produce the show. The Golden Globe Awards were previously televised in the U.S. on CBS.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards were notable as the first major award show to acknowledge the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement in a big way. Attendees supporting the movements were asked to dressed in black (and the vast majority of attendees did), and some wore special #TimesUp pins for the occasion. 

The Golden Globes Awards ceremony is seen in more than 210 territories worldwide. The show has undergone some big changes over the years. Here are a few milestone changes at the Golden Globe Awards:

Television categories: The Golden Globe Awards started off as awards for movies but then in 1955, the show added categories for television.

Golden Globe hosts: For decades, the Golden Globe Awards were among the few televised award shows that didn't have a host. That changed in 1995 when "Night Court" star John Larroquette and "Northern Exposure" star Janine Turner co-hosted the show. The Golden Globes didn't have another host again until 2010 when Ricky Gervais hosted the show. Since then, other celebrities who have been Golden Globe hosts so far include Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (who hosted together), Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers, who have all been cast members of NBC's "Saturday Night Live."

Coast-to-coast live telecast: The Golden Globes show was telecast live on all coasts in the continental U.S. for the first time in 2010. The show was previously telecast live only in the Eastern and Central time zones and tape-delayed in other U.S. time zones.

Golden Globe Ambassador: In 2018, the Golden Globe Awards retired the Miss Golden Globe title and changed it to Golden Globe Ambassador, in order to represent gender inclusivity. The Golden Globe Ambassador title is given to a celebrity's teen or young-adult child whose duties that year are to assist in handing out the Golden Globe trophies on stage and directing people to and from the stage.
