Golden Globe Awards

The Golden Globes are hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, whose members are comprised of journalists.

Celebrities didn’t start handing out awards until 1958, when the Rat Pack -- led by Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. -- rushed to the stage with whiskeys and cigars to give them out.

The Golden Globes wasn't televised nationally until it appeared on a segment of The Andy Williams Show in 1964 and 1965. Before that, it was on the air only in Los Angeles.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was the first film to win all five major Golden Globes. In 1976 it won for Best Motion Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Screenplay.

The 1976 film Nashville got the most nominations ever (nine), but it took home only one award at the 1977 ceremony.

The 2016 musical comedy drama  La La Land was nominated in seven categories at the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards which took place on January 9, 2017. It won the globe for every single nomination, including all five major Golden Globes, beating the previous record haul at the awards of five.

Meryl Streep has been nominated for the most individual Golden Globes.

The trophy weighs 5.5 pounds.

The event’s red carpet measures around 437 feet.
