Los An­ge­les: Next year’s Golden Globe Awards will be post­poned for nearly two months to the end of Fe­bru­ary, the organisers an­nounced on Mon­day.

“We are excited to an­nounce the 78th an­nual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by the dy­namic Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will take place on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 28, 2021,” said the Hollywood For­eign Press As­so­ci­a­tion (HFPA) in a state­ment. “To ac­com­mo­date both do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional film and tele­vi­sion pro­duc­tions, the HFPA will pro­vide fur­ther guid­ance around el­i­gi­bil­ity, vot­ing pe­riod, and re­vised nom­i­na­tions an­nounce­ment tim­ing in the com­ing weeks.”

The Golden Globes is the lat­est Hollywood awards show to be de­ferred in re­sponse to the COVID-19 pan­demic. The an­nounce­ment came one week af­ter the de­ci­sion of the Academy of Mo­tion Pic­ture Arts and Sciences to de­fer the 93rd Os­cars cer­e­mony from Fe­bru­ary 28 to April 25, 2021, in re­sponse to the COVID-19 pan­demic.

The new date of the 78th Golden Globes is in fact the same date when the 93rd Academy Awards was orig­i­nally sched­uled to take place.
