NEW YORK — The Golden Globes have found a new broadcast home on CBS, after the troubled awards show lost its longtime home on NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association disbanded following years of scandal.
The 81st Golden Globes will air on Sunday, Jan. 7, on CBS and Paramount+, CBS and the Globes announced Friday. The show will also be available on the CBS app.
The network declined to comment on the terms of the deal, including how long it will last.
NBC aired the 2023 Globes on a one-year basis after the 2022 edition was essentially canceled. After a 2021 report revealed that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had no Black members, stars and studios boycotted the Globes before returning for this year’s awards.
Following its 2023 broadcast on Tuesday evening, NBC chose not to renew its contract. According to Nielsen, there was a near-record drop of 6.3 million viewers.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has since been reorganized and no longer exists in name. Earlier this year, Dick Clark Production, a property of Penske Media, and Eldridge Industries, the holding company owned by billionaire investor Todd Boehly, acquired the rights and properties of the Globes. A newly formed non-profit organization will vote for the awards.
CBS, which also airs the Grammys, aired the Globes in 1981 and 1982 before the awards ceremony aired on NBC for years.
