TOP LIVE EVENTS
This is the event where the movie awards season really start to heat up. Following on from the phony war of the People's Choice and Critics' Choice ceremonies we move onto one of the real big ones, with the Golden Globe Awards being widely regarded as second only to the undisputed heavyweight champion of the division, The Oscars, in terms of desirability and prestige.
The Golden Globes has been taking place since way back in 1944 an impressive achievement by any standards, and is being held as previously in the plush surroundings of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The hotel is located at the intersection of the iconic Santa Monica and Wilshire Boulevards, and provides a truly top class location for such a prestigious occasion.
Each of the big awards ceremonies has it's own gong for outstanding achievement, reserved for the very end of the evening, and in this case we have the Cecil B. DeMille award, named for it's very first recipient, the famous director and producer.
The host for this year's ceremony will be Jimmy Fallon.
