The Golden Globe honor the best in both film and television. While the TV prizes don’t influence the Emmys which are held in the late summer, the film awards are ideally timed to impact the Oscars. Voting for the 91st Academy Awards starts on Monday, January 7. Globe voters spread the wealth in the film nominations with “Vice” receiving six followed by “A Star is Born,” “The Favourite” and “Green Book” with five apiece and “Mary Poppins Returns” with four. “A Star is Born” is our odds-on favorite to win both here and at the Oscars on February 24.
Besides the big reveal of the winners of the 25 competitive races (14 in film, 11 in TV), there will be two special presentations during the ceremony. Jeff Bridges is getting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for life achievement in film. Carol Burnett is receiving the new life achievement award for television, which is to be named after her for all future honorees.
