70th Golden Globes: Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Host the Stars on NBC

It’s Awards Season and once again there is the heady rush of excitement about who gets nominated, who was snubbed and who will win. It will be a glamorous night at the famed Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California. The Golden Globes presented by HFPA (The Hollywood Foreign Press Association) began in 1943.

Traditionally The Golden Globes is a night for the stars to have some fun – outrageous at times like in 1999 when Jack Nicholson mooned the audience or earlier in 1958 when an inebriated ‘Rat Pack’ (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.) took over the stage and the show. Over time the Golden Globes had become a stuffy rather unremarkable event until thank God, Ricky Gervais hosted the ‘2011 Globes’ and breathed a little irreverence and life back into the evening.

The Golden Globes kicks off the Film & TV Awards Season preceded by the Critics Choice Awards (since 1995) and the People’s Choice Awards, (held since 1975 with two counterparts: People’s Choice Awards in Australia and the British Comedy Awards.

myETVmedia takes a quick look at some of the films and stars we have followed this year that will be honoured at the Golden Globes and during the rest of the Awards season. Across the Awards Events many movies and actors are consistently on the list scooping up much of the attention. This year is no different. Many of these movies first made an appearance at the Venice and TIFF (Toronto) International Film Festivals. It is not surprising since Venice is smaller but the oldest film festival and TIFF is the largest and has consistently attracted many high quality films. Their selections wind up in the most prestigious film awards lineups for the season; the Critics Choice Awards, People’s Choice Awards, Golden Globes, BAFTA and finally the Academy Awards:
