Golden Globes Sets Late February Date After Oscars Delay

The 2021 Golden Globes has been set for Feb. 28, 2021, after the Oscars, and several other awards shows, delayed their 2021 editions due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Indeed, the Globes’ new date is the same date that the 2021 Oscars was originally set to occupy.

Though the official date for the 78th Golden Globes had not yet been announced, the show typically airs in early January, and it was previously announced that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return as hosts.

As usual, the ceremony will air live coast to coast from 5-8 p.m. PT on NBC from The Beverly Hilton.

In early March, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced  that due to the pandemic, films can qualify for Golden Globes consideration even if they do not first screen in a theater. Instead, films may be “released first on a television format (e.g. subscription streaming service, subscription cable channel, broadcast television, etc.) and will still be eligible.”
