The first Golden Globe Awards were held in 1944, but did you know that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn’t start recognizing television until 1956? And it was at baby steps too. At that ceremony, the Globes merely gave out one award for Television Achievement with no announced nominees. It continued that way for a few years, including an award for Best TV Show, before the HFPA gave TV the full treatment with multiple categories and announced nominees at the 1964 ceremony.
Some of these categories have long been eliminated, like Best TV Star – Male and Best TV Star – Female, as the HFPA fine-tuned its categories to the current slate. (Though, really, if you ask us, they need to split up the all-encompassing supporting categories.)
How well do you know the early days of the TV races at the Globes? Tackle our quiz now and see. (Don’t worry, there are some contemporary questions too.)
