Golden Globes Set for Jan. 12

Nominations to be announced Dec. 12

As expected, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. has scheduled next year’s 71st annual Golden Globes for Jan. 12.

NBC will televise the kudos live from the Beverly Hilton at 5 p.m. Pacific.

While the Globes’ place in the calendar remains what it was in 2013 — the second Sunday of the year — the context will be considerably different, in no small part because of the Academy Awards. The Oscar nominations date is moving from Jan. 10 this year, three days before this year’s Globes, to Jan. 16 next year, four days after the Globes.

Some believed that the Oscars were stealing the HFPA’s thunder by placing their noms a day ahead of the Globes in 2013, but in the end, the Oscar noms only seemed to feed interest in the Globes — especially after Ben Affleck followed the shutout from the Academy’s director category with a Globes triumph.

In any case, the Jan. 8 deadline to vote for the Oscar noms will still take place before the Globes’ results.

The Oscars’ move is temporary to avoid the 2014 Winter Olympics. It is delaying next year’s kudos until March 2 — seven weeks after the Globes.

All the major film awards on the 2013-14 calendar have now been locked in. The SAG Awards will take place Jan. 18, the PGA Awards on Jan. 19, the WGA Awards on Feb. 1, the Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards on Feb. 15 and the U.K.’s BAFTA Awards on Feb. 16, all leading up to the Oscars in March. Final Oscar balloting will close Feb. 25.

Nominations for the Golden Globes will be announced Dec. 12. Rules and submission forms are online at  goldenglobes.org/entry-forms.
