The Golden Globes have always run in early January but due to covid19 they’ve decided to push back the show for the health and safety of all to late February.
The new Golden Globes date was the previously announced Academy Awards date for 2021. Officially the date for the 78th Golden Globes had not yet been announced ( Feb.28th is tentative), the show typically airs in early January, and they had previously announced that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would return as hosts. The Golden Globes’ delayed date comes amid the 93rd Academy Awards and the BAFTA Film Awards pushing their dates and eligibility periods for feature films as the nation continues to grapple with the pandemic. The Academy Awards are being delayed from Feb. 28, 2021 to April 25, 2021. The eligibility for films (from Jan. 1, 2020, was set to expire at the end of Dec. 31, 2020), has been extended to Feb. 28, 2021. The BAFTA Film Awards will be held on Sunday, April 11, 2021 after originally being scheduled to take place on Feb. 13, 2021.
