In a statement released on Friday, CBS Entertainment announced that they will be hosting the Golden Globes live for the first time in 2024. The three-hour award show extravaganza will be aired on CBS on Sunday, Jan. 7, at 5 p.m. Pacific Time (8 p.m. Eastern Time), following an NFL football doubleheader. Additionally, the show will be available for streaming on Paramount+ and the CBS app, as part of a new deal between the Network and the Golden Globes.

George Cheeks, the president and CEO of CBS, expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating that live entertainment and sports are a significant part of CBS’s identity, and the inclusion of the Golden Globes adds a new dimension to their first quarter schedule.

This will be the first time that the Golden Globes will be aired on CBS, as their long-standing partnership with NBC ended. The award show was taken off television in 2022 due to scandals and boycotts. An investigation by the Los Angeles Times revealed the lack of Black members in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which at the time organized the awards. As a result, many stars and studios boycotted the show, leading to its temporary cancellation.

In 2023, the Golden Globes returned to NBC in a one-year deal after the HFPA sold the award show to Todd Boehly’s Eldridge Industries. The sale marked the dissolution of the nonprofit organization and its membership, with the show now being operated as a for-profit venture by Eldridge Industries, which also owns Dick Clark Productions and the Beverly Hilton.

Originally beginning in 1944 as an informal ceremony to honor actors, the Golden Globe Awards have now become a global event, viewed in 185 countries around the world.

It is worth noting that CBS is part of Paramount Global, which also owns CBS News.
