What is Golden Globe Awards?
The Golden Globe Awards is conferred by Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) to personalities in the film and television industry for their outstanding work.
 
It is usually held every January and is a major part of the film industry's awards season, which ends with the Academy Awards. The 78th Golden Globe Awards were held on February 28, 2021.


Golden Globe Awards History

Earlier, the award was conferred to a person for excellence in filmmaking. In 1950, the foundation created a special honourary award for outstanding contributions to the entertainment industry as well and was presented to director Cecil B. DeMille. Since then, the official name for the award became the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
 
The revenues generated from the ceremony are donated to entertainment-related charities and help fund creative scholarships for artists.
 
After the Oscars and the Grammy Awards, it is the third most-watched show, telecast in 167 countries.
 
In 2008, the 65th Golden Globes ceremony was cancelled due to the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike, and replaced by a press conference to announce the winners.
 
Under the Best Director category, Elia Kazan holds the most with four wins, followed by Clint Eastwood, Oliver Stone, Milos Forman, David Lean, and Martin Scorsese, whereas Steven Spielberg holds the record for most nominations with twelve as of 2017.
 
In acting, Meryl Streep holds the record for the most wins with eight along with the most nominations with 31.
