The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards will take place on January 15, 2012, with the announcement of nominations for the accolade will be held later this year.
The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards date has been set. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced on Thursday morning, April 28, that the ceremony is scheduled on Sunday, January 15, 2012.
Other key dates announced include a November 4 deadline for submission of Golden Globe entry forms, a November 9 schedule for Cecil B. DeMille Award Announcement, and a December 15 schedule for "The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards" nomination announcement. Meanwhile, January 11, 2012, is set as a deadline for receipt of final ballots by Ernst & Young.
The official broadcaster is yet to be announced. For the last two decades, the show has been aired on NBC. However, in 2010 the HFPA sued the production company, accusing the company of negotiating a new broadcast deal without permission. The producer, defending NBC, claimed that the contract was valid. As a result, a trial to resolve the broadcast rights is scheduled for September.
