The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced the important dates leading up to the 2014 Golden Globes and scheduled the event for Jan. 12. That means that there will be an unusually long wait between the ceremony and the more serious Oscars next year.
In a press release, the HFPA and NBC said that nominations will be announced on Dec. 12 at 8 a.m. on the East Coast (5 a.m. on the West Coast). The events leading up to that date start on Nov. 1, when film and TV entry forms are due. The Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award recipient will be named on Nov. 6.
After the nominations are announced, HFPA members have until Jan. 8 to turn in their ballots.
The awards will be handed out on Jan. 12 at the Beverly Hilton, starting at 8 p.m. ET and 5 p.m. PT. It will air live on NBC again this season. No hosts were announced, but fans will probably like to see Tina Fey and Amy Poehler come back after their acclaimed performance this year.
The 2013 awards season will be unusually long this year, since the Oscars will not be held until March 2, 2014 so the ceremony won’t clash with the Winter Olympics in Russia. It will give studios and stars a longer time to promote potential Golden Globe wins.
Also, unlike the 2012 season, the HFPA will not have to worry about the Academy stealing any of its thunder. This year, the Oscar nominations were announced just days before the Globes were handed out, but the 2013 Oscar nominations will not be announced until Jan. 16.
