Ellen DeGeneres Is Honored for Achievement in Television
Global comedy superstar Ricky Gervais, in his unique and legendary fashion, will resume hosting duties for a record fifth time at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The three-hour telecast will air live on NBC coast to coast Sunday, January 5, 2020 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. The Golden Globes serve as the official kickoff to the 2020 awards season. Twenty-five categories - 14 in film and 11 in television - are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).
Last January’s NBC telecast of the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards averaged 18.6 million viewers in “live plus same day” Nielsen ratings, delivering the biggest audience for a primetime telecast, excluding news and sports, in 10 months, since the prior March’s Academy Awards.
The Golden Globe Awards, often referred to as “Hollywood’s Party of the Year™,” is one of the biggest nights on the calendar for live viewing. It’s also one of the few awards shows that combines the honorees of both film and television. The 2019 Golden Globe Awards telecast averaged a 5.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 18.6 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Produced by dick clark productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 territories worldwide. Lorenzo Soria is President of the HFPA. Mike Mahan, CEO of dick clark productions, and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Television at dick clark productions, will serve as executive producers.
