Golden Globes 2021: Date postponed, will take place a little later than we’re used to

Golden Globes 2021: Tina Fey & Amy Poehler return to a late air date

It is going to be a while before we see the Golden Globes 2021, an award show that will see the return of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as co-hosts. According to TVLine, the ceremony has been pushed back by two whole months to accommodate the ongoing pandemic.

It will now premiere on February 28, 2021, which is quite a difference from when it usually debuts. Typically, the Golden Globes air on the first Sunday of the calendar year as a way to kick off a new year of television and film.

In a statement released by the HFPA, they explained that the postponement is so that production companies have more time to ready their content if it has not yet premiered. It will also give voters more time.

Golden Globes 2021: Eligibility and nomination announcements

Since the Golden Globes 2021 have been postponed, that means the timeframe of eligible content has also been shifted, along with the date when nominations will officially be announced.

We do not yet have confirmation of the eligibility rules or the date when we might finally learn the nominations so we can then obsess and theorize over next year’s winners! The statement from the HFPA indicated that more information would follow in the weeks to come.

The postponement does not automatically mean that the ceremony will be hosted in-person, however. It is not yet evident if the ceremony will be done virtually or otherwise.

The news of the Golden Globes being on the move comes shortly after the announcement that the Academy Awards would also be shifted to a different airdate. The Oscars will now air on April 25, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
