The Hollywood Foreign Press Association and NBC announced today that the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC Sunday, Jan. 17, 2010. For the first time, the ceremony will air live across the country, meaning it will begin at 8 p.m. on the east coast and 5 p.m. on the west coast. In years past, there had been a tape delay for the West Coast feed.
“In this age when news is disseminated with increasing rapidity, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is delighted to announce that this year’s Golden Globe Awards telecast will be aired live nationwide,” Jorge Camara, president of the HFPA, said in the press release. “For the first time, viewers on the west coast will see the winners announced at the same time as the rest of the country, with no tape delay.”
Key dates for other Globes festivities were also announced, most importantly that nominations will be announced at 5 a.m. on Dec. 15, 2009. The announcement revealing who Miss Golden Globe will be, as well as who will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, will come in November.
