To the surprise of no one, the eligibility window at next year’s Golden Globe awards has shifted. The 2021 Golden Globe Awards will recognize films released within the same eligibility window as the 2021 Academy Awards, Jan. 1, 2020 through Feb. 28, 2021, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced on Monday.
The HFPA has not changed the period from which work on the television side of things when it comes to what will be considered. That will remain Jan. 1, 2020 through Dec. 31, 2020.
But both film and TV distributors will need to have their plans firmed up by Nov. 30, 2020, the date by which entry forms from both media will now need to be submitted to the HFPA. Then, Globes TV nominating voting will run from Dec. 30 through Jan. 12, and Globes film nomination voting will run from Jan. 13 through Jan. 30. The nominations announcement will occur on Feb. 3, and then final voting for both media will run from Feb. 10 through Feb. 23.
The Golden Globes ceremony has been moved from its early January date to February 28th.
It was previously announced that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to host the Globes for the fourth time. As usual, the ceremony will air on NBC.
