The 70th Annual Golden Globes ceremony will take place Sunday, January 13, 2013 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. Co-hosts for the televised event will be writers, comedic actors, and friends -- Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
According to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the telecast of the Golden Globes begins at 8 p.m. ET and 5 p.m. PT and will be broadcast live on NBC.
Performers presenting or attending the Globes include George Clooney, Robert Pattinson, Lea Michele, Halle Berry, Julia Roberts, Christian Bale, and many others.
A distinctive feature of the Golden Globes is that awards are given out both for film and television performances in 25 categories. Interestingly, this year's co-hosts are up against one another in the running for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series -- Comedy or Musical. Tina Fey is the star of 30 Rock; and Ms. Poehler leads up Parks and Recreation. Both programs air on NBC.
Coming so soon before the Oscars, many believe the nominees and winners of the Golden Globes give a good indication of which actors and which films may be in the lead for the Academy Awards.
