Watch The Golden Globe Awards
The Golden Globe Awards are special awards that are presented to the best in Television and Cinema as chosen by the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The Golden Globes have been presented every year since 1944. Twenty years later, in 1964, the show would be broadcast to Television viewers. The show has aired every year since then except for 2008.
The awards for excellence in television programming are doled out in separated categories for Comedy and Dramatic programming as well as for mini-series and made for TV motion pictures. The awards presented each year include Best Series, Best Actor, and Best Actress.
The film awards are also unique because they also recognize best film, actor and actress in a comedy/musical as a different category than best film, actor, and actress in a dramatic film. There are also awards for best supporting actor and actress and best director. There is also a special award presented each year for lifetime achievement in motion pictures. This award is called The Cecil B. DeMille Award. Past DeMille award winners include Hollywood heavyweights such as Jodie Foster, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Barbara Streisand, Dustin Hoffman, Clint Eastwood, Lucille Ball, Henry Fonda, John Wayne, Bob Hope, Judy Garland and Walt Disney.
The environment for the Golden Globes Telecast is very different from other more traditional award shows. The nominees are seated in a restaurant style table alignment instead of in theatre seating. Up until 2009 there was no official host for the show, but since then comedic actors Ricky Gervais, Amy Poehler, and Tina Fey have all handled host duties.
The most recent edition of The Golden Globes Awards featured film wins from Argo and Les Miserables and Television wins for Homeland and Girls.

It seemed to take a while for the crew behind the Golden Globe Awards last night to get on top of their cut-away shots of the audience. But when they finally did, they managed to catch some pretty great ones. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand seemed the frontrunners for the best reactions of the night with their dueling grumpiness, and Salma Hayek turned some heads when she played with her hair and seemingly ignored Kevin Spacey's acceptance speech outright, but it ended up being Chrissy Teigen who had the most talked-about audience reaction.
Could the Golden Globes be becoming more relevant? In last night's telecast, the awards show that people usually mock for their odd or rubber-stamped choices (how many awards can one organization give to "Modern Family?") made a bunch of smart moves in honoring some very worthy projects and actors. Among the surprises were Gina Rodriguez, the young star of "Jane the Virgin" who is considered to be the TV season's breakout star.
The Golden Globe Awards aired last night, and as always Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were flawless in their hosting duties, landing home run after home run. But what about the acceptance speeches? When the show started running long (as usual) toward the end, it seemed as though it was just a steady stream of introductions and speeches. Some were wonderful, moving and funny...others were not. Here are the best acceptance speeches of the 2015 Golden Globes...and the worst. BEST: Maggie Gyllenhaal Sure, she pretty much name-dropped her brother right away, but Maggie really made an impact with her message about roles for women in Hollywood.

Ricky Gervais once again took the stage to host the Golden Globes Sunday night, and the result was more or less the same as last year: a whole lot of insults and zingers aimed at pretty much anyone (who deserved it, anyway). "Where was I?" Gervais began as he approached the microphone and began the show. It was a simple yet effective way to comment on everything that happened last year -- the insults, the controversy, the "ban," the re-hiring -- and indicate that no, he was not going to tone it down this year.
Everyone made it through the night without Ricky Gervais saying anything too terrible, and all the stars (and unknowns who may well soon be stars) got their awards. Did anyone get robbed? Well, as sad as it was to see Bryan Cranston miss out on an award for "Breaking Bad," Kelsey Grammer has been doing excellent work on "Boss." There's always the inevitable disappointment that "Parks and Recreation" doesn't win anything, but that's not anything new at this point.
Welcome to awards season! The Golden Globes nominees were announced this morning and there were some noticeable snubs, as well as some surprising inclusions. First off, let's talk about the surprises. Despite strong reviews, Joseph Gordon Levitt's cancer comedy "50/50" hadn't gotten all that much awards buzz. So imagine the pleasant surprise to see it nominated for both Best Picture, Comedy and Best Actor, Comedy. "Hugo" in the Best Drama category is probably also a bit shocking, as a movie that was marketed mostly towards children.
What do you do when a rude guest insults your friends and ruins your party? If you're the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, apparently you just invite him back next year. Ricky Gervais is back on as host of the Golden Globes, despite having insulted pretty much everyone in the room at least year's ceremony, including the president of the HFPA himself. Gervais also took some jabs at Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie's "The Tourist," implying that it was only nominated so that the HFPA could invite Brad and Angelina to the ceremony, and called Bruce Willis "Ashton Kutcher's dad.
Let's face it: Ricky Gervais probably won't be asked to host the Golden Globes again, no matter what he says about it. But that doesn't mean we have to go through this year's ceremony without a proper roasting of every celebrity in the room, courtesy of England's master of feather-ruffling. On his blog, Gervais put forth a brilliant idea: do a live commentary on the Golden Globes, but do it nowhere near the ceremony itself. No, he's not going to live-tweet it (everybody does that).
After Ricky Gervais insulted pretty much everyone in the room, including the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, during last year's Golden Globes, it seemed pretty unlikely that he would be invited back anytime in the near future. But you should never count out the irresistible draw of controversy. According to Deadline, Gervais said that he has already been invited back to host the Golden Globes. Not only that, but he was asked to host the Oscars as well! I guess the repercussions of hosting the most mean-spirited Golden Globes ever aren't so heavy after all.
