The Golden Globes organization has announced that the 2024 Golden Globe Awards ceremony will air live on CBS, stream on Paramount+ and be available on the CBS app as part of a new deal between the network and the Golden Globes.
The telecast, which will run for three hours beginning at 5 p.m. PST, will air Sunday, Jan. 7, 2024, immediately following an NFL on CBS Sunday doubleheader.
The Globes and NBC ended a long-term relationship after the 2023 telecast, following years of controversy over the conduct of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization behind the Globes.
Then, in June 2023, Dick Clark Productions and Eldridge acquired all of the Globes’ assets, rights and properties from the HFPA, and the resulting Golden Globes organization has since significantly revamped who gets to vote for the Globes and actively worked to build trust in the Hollywood community. (DCP is owned by Penske Media Eldridge, a joint venture between Penske Media Corporation and Eldridge that also owns The Hollywood Reporter.)
CBS has long been the home of the Grammy Awards, which celebrate music, and the Tony Awards, which celebrate theater. But not since the days of the Hollywood Film Awards has the Tiffany network broadcast an awards show celebrating film.
“Live entertainment and sports have, and will always be, a hallmark of CBS, and the Globes adds an exciting new dimension to our first quarter schedule this year,” said George Cheeks, CBS’ president and CEO, in a statement. “The January timing also provides the added benefit of yet another signature platform to promote the return of CBS’ new primetime schedule in February.”
“We’re so proud to bring the Golden Globes to CBS to celebrate 81 years of award show history,” added Jay Penske, the CEO, chairman and founder of Penske Media and owner of DCP. “CBS has demonstrated an impressive 30-year commitment to the Grammys and been instrumental to their long-term success. In CBS we found an ideal partner who understands the value of live entertainment programming and whose multiplatform distribution model is reflective of how global audiences choose to consume content today.”
It was announced earlier this year that Golden Globes will be presented in two new categories: best stand-up comedian on television and cinematic/box office achievement. Yahoo
