Golden Globe Awards to kick off awards season on Jan. 5

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Hollywood Foreign Press Association says it has chosen a date for next year’s Golden Globe Awards.

The association said Friday the 77th annual awards will be held Jan. 5. The ceremony will kick off a condensed awards season with the Oscars moving up their ceremony to Feb. 9, 2020.

In January, the Globes were watched by 18.6 million viewers. The awards show, which hands out honors for film and television, has improved its reputation despite once being dismissed by critics for some puzzling nominees.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association says its members represent 56 countries.
