Golden Globe Awards Betting
Held each January to kick off the Entertainment Industry’s Award Season the Golden Globe Awards recognize excellence in American and international film and television. The Golden Globe Awards began in 1944 and are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. NBC televises the Golden Globe that are normally held at The Beverly Hilton, Beverly Hills, California.
Everyone has an opinion on film and television from the quality of shows and talent. And that is where wagering on the Golden Globe Awards kicks in. Gamblers can have their say not only as to who they believe is the best but also try and handicap the event, just like a football game.
As incredible as it may sound, handicapping the Golden Globes has a method to the madness. Award shows often have an element of it being somebody’s “turn” to win as well as having unfortunate performers who are shut out, despite being total worthy of winning. Paying close attention to the performers and their relationships within the industry, as well as past success at such venues, can help you make the winning wager.
The Golden Globe Awards feature gambling action on single bets for who will win, props and exotics, and of course parlays. For film and television fans the Golden Globes are part of what sports fans would consider the entertainment industry’s playoff season. Gambling action will be heavy from folks who never bet sports but cannot get enough of the Entertainment Industry awards.
As with anything else from Hollywood there are controversies that rage almost every year. Political rants and profane speeches serve to both drive some audience away but entertain others, depending on taste. Charges of favoritism in how the Awards are determined is a common part of Award Season and the Golden Globes are no exception.
New Hosts for 2021
Ricky Gervais hosted the 77th Golden Globe Awards in January of 2020 for the fifth and final time of his career. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be co-hosts for the 78th Golden Globe Awards, with a date still yet to be determined.
NBC Entertainment Chairman Paul Telegdy made the announcement onstage at NBCUniversal's Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California on Saturday.
"NBC has long been the home to two of the funniest people on the planet — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — and we didn't want to wait any longer to share the great news that they'll be hosting the Globes once again," Telegdy said in a statement.
The award-winning comedy icons have starred in countless projects together, including "Saturday Night Live," "Mean Girls," "Baby Mama" and "Sisters," among many others. They hosted the Globes in 2013, 2014 and 2015 to universal praise.
"There's no denying that Tina and Amy's comedic chemistry is infectious," said Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. "We can't wait to see the dynamic duo return to the Golden Globes stage."
"Tina and Amy have provided Golden Globes viewers with some of the most memorable moments the show has ever seen," said Amy Thurlow, president of Dick Clark Productions, which produces the annual event. "We're thrilled to welcome them back in 2021."
