Because of Corona … a Golden Globe concert between two cities for the first time

The organizers of the Golden Globe Awards said that the ceremony, which is scheduled for the end of February, will be held in Los Angeles and New York, while the nominees for prizes for their work in film and television will participate from multiple locations around the world.

These changes were made due to the Corona pandemic, which also led to the cancellation of the usual lavish dinner party for stars and celebrities at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Instead, comedian Tina Fey will perform live on NBC from Rainbow Hall in New York, while Amy Poehler will co-host the concert from inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

The rest of the details of the February 28 concert are still being prepared, and it will be the first major awards ceremony ahead of the Oscars. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will announce the nominees for the Golden Globe Awards on Wednesday.

The Corona pandemic has forced organizers to make major changes to the way award ceremonies are broadcast and prepared. The Emmy Awards ceremony last September saw the participation of dozens of nominees from far away, while other concerts included a mix between recorded and live shows.

The pandemic also caused the Golden Globe and Oscars to be held for two months, as the Golden Globes were supposed to be held in early January, while the Academy Awards will be held on April 25 instead of its usual date at the end of February or early March.
