NBC has closed a deal with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions to keep the annual Golden Globe Awards at the network for at least another eight years.
NBC has long been home to the Globes broadcast, having aired the ceremony f0r the last 23 years. The new deal will extend the association through 2026, beginning with next year’s 76th annual awards.
As previously announced, the 2019 ceremony will be held on Jan. 6, 2019, with nominations to be announced on Dec. 6.
“We look forward to airing the Golden Globe Awards on NBC for the next eight years at least,” said NBC Entertainment chariman Robert Greenblatt. “We’ve been the proud home of the Globes since 1996, and over those decades we’re honored to have been part of its transformation into Hollywood’s most joyous awards ceremony. And this year will be no different.”
“The members of the HFPA are delighted to continue our long association with NBC,” said Meher Tatna, president of the HFPA. “We are looking forward to celebrating our 24th show together on Jan. 6.”
“We couldn’t be happier to have the Golden Globes remain with NBC,” said Mike Mahan, CEO, Dick Clark Productions. “dcp, the HFPA and NBC have shared a great history with this show and we anticipate many spectacular years ahead.”
The Golden Globes — which recognizes excellence in domestic and foreign film and television — is one of the few remaining reliable ratings draws on broadcast television. The most recent telecast drew 19 million viewers and a 5.0 rating among adults 18-49 — a slight year-over-year decline, but still among the best-rated entertainment broadcasts of 2018.
