The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has set a new date for the 2021 Golden Globe following the coronavirus pandemic uncertainties affecting Hollywood. The award ceremony is now set for February 28, 2021, the abandoned Oscars original date.
“To accommodate both domestic and international film and television productions, the HFPA will provide further guidance around eligibility, voting period and revised nominations announcement timing in the coming weeks,” the organization said.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler still have their names on the hosting card for the 2021 ceremony, which will be aired live on NBC from The Beverly Hilton.
Usually, the Golden Globe takes place in early January every year before all other award ceremonies. Its winners in major categories are mostly repeated throughout award season and it’s safe to say the tradition will manifest next year as well, since the Academy Awards and BAFTA Film Awards new set of dates are months back after it.
The Oscars is now slated to happen on April 25, 2021, with the BAFTA Film Awards taking place on April 11, 2021. Both ceremonies have changed their eligibility rules and extended their time frame to favor filmmakers and studios in scoring nominations for films that will be submitted.
The Film Independent Spirit Awards is scheduled to take place a day before the Oscars, April 24, 2021.
