The most well-known faces of television and movies will be walking down the red carpet on January 13 for one of the biggest award shows in Hollywood. Robert Pattinson, Taylor Swift and Adele are only a few names who will be attending this star-studded evening.
It seems like barely any time has passed since this year’s “People’s Choice Awards” took place at the Nokia Theatre in LA. The beautiful Kaley Cuoco (Penny from the “Big Bang Theory”) hosted the “PCAs” where the most popular artists, actors, and actresses were chosen by the public. ‘Hunger Games’ was the overall winners of the night with 5 awards including Favorite Movie, and leading actress Jennifer Lawrence won Favorite Movie Actress.
Tina Fey (“30 Rock”) and Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation”) take over for Ricky Gervais hosting the evening. Known to be two of the funniest women on the screen, their instinct for humor is bound to make for an entertaining evening. And they are no newbies to the “Golden Globes:” Fey has won two of her own and Poehler was nominated for one last year. The duo will be sharing the stage with other famous faces who will be presenting. They include Robert Pattinson, Kerry Washington and Jeremy Renner.
There are 25 categories in the “Golden Globes,” and for each there are 5 nominations. Adele’s ‘Skyfall’ goes head to head against Taylor Swift’s ‘Safe and Sound’ and ‘Les Misérables’ for Best Original Song- Motion Picture. Even the hosts are going up against each other for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series- Comedy or Musical.
Meryl Streep is back this year with her movie ‘Hope Springs’. She is nominated in the category for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture- Comedy or Musical. Streep has won the most individual awards in the history of the Golden Globes, having 8 to her name. She has also had the most individual nominations, amounting to 27.
This year’s show will be particularly special because afterwards, on January 15, a musical theme composed and performed by internationally renowned musician Yoshiki will be available on iTunes in 111 countries. The money raised will be donated to various charities that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) choose.
The “Golden Globes” will be held at the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton, in Beverly Hills, CA on January 13 5PT/ 8ET.
Who are you most looking forward to seeing and who are you hoping to win this year?
