Golden Globes 2021 Postponed Nearly Two Months

The annual 2021 Golden Globes ceremony is set to take place a little later than scheduled. The change which came a week after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science announced the 93rd telecast of its annual Academy Awards has been pushed back by two months to April 25, 2021, means the 2021 Golden Globes ceremony is now set for Feb. 28.

The new date for the Golden Globes 2021 awards means it will take place two months before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts’ 93rd Academy Awards telecast. The new date was initially the original date of the 2021 Oscars Award, a date set back in 2017. 

After making the announcement, the organization said, “To accommodate both domestic and intentional film and television productions, the HFPA (Hollywood Foreign Press Association) will provide further guidance around eligibility, voting period and revised nominations announcement timing in the coming weeks.”

Previous Golden Globes awards were usually held on the first Sunday of a new year to signal the start of the Hollywood Awards season of every production and movie that was done the year before. However, the pandemic this year means the usual way the awards have always been held has to be adjusted. 

The HFPA also announced that the 2021 Golden Globes awards will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. There is no other information about the 2021 ceremony except that it will broadcast live on NBC.

In other news, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced a change it the date of its EE Film Awards to April 11th meaning the BAFTA Film awards will come two weeks before the 2021 Oscars ceremony.
