Next year's Golden Globe Awards
will take place on Sunday, Jan. 13, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced on Tuesday. The Globes will take place slightly earlier than usual, two days before Oscar nominations are announced. The decision to hold the ceremony before Oscar nominations solves what could have been a significant problem caused by the Academy's earliest-ever date -- and by new Oscar campaign rules that might have prevented film studios from throwing Globes parties. Golden Globes weekend is typically one of the biggest party weekends on the awards circuit, but new AMPAS regulations severely restrict parties that take place post-nomination -- including, for the first time, parties connected to another awards show. The Jan. 13 date puts the Globes two weekends before the Producers Guild and Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three before the Directors Guild. Typically, the Critics Choice Movie Awards take place a few days before the Globes; the Broadcast Film Critics Association has yet to announce the timing for that show. Golden Globe nominations will be announced on Thursday, Dec. 13.
