Globes and BAFTAs follow Oscars lead

With the Academy Awards remaining on the last Sunday in Feburary next year, the timetable for the upcoming awards season will remain fairly static. The Golden Globes will be handed out on the third Sunday in January (Jan. 15) while the BAFTAs are set to take place on the second Sunday in February (Feb. 12). Those put them on the same spots in the calendar as this year’s kudos.

Whether the Globes will air on long-time broadcaster NBC remains up in the air. The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. and Dick Clark Productions are still locked in a legal battle over the broadcast rights with the trial scheduled for September. The kudocast has proven to be a real ratings bonanza for the peacock network with more than 17 million tuning in to the show last January.
