LOS ANGELES (Dec. 6, 2018) – This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the nominees for the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. In addition, Meher Tatna, President of the HFPA, revealed a prestigious new annual award that will recognize the highest level of achievement in television.
“Equivalent to its film accolade counterpart, the Cecil B DeMille Award, this new annual award will honor TV’s biggest names and brightest talents,” said Tatna. “Honorees will be selected based on their outstanding accomplishments, as well as the impact and influence that their television career has had on the industry and audiences. The importance of this presentation is underscored by the fact that this is the first special achievement award of its kind since the DeMille Award was originally presented in 1952.”
The inaugural presentation of this new TV award will take place during the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The first ever television honoree, along with the Cecil B DeMille recipient, will be revealed in the coming weeks.
Terry Crews, Danai Gurira, Leslie Mann, and Christian Slater joined Tatna, the previously announced Golden Globe Ambassador Isan Elba, and Executive Producer and Executive VP of Television at dick clark productions, Barry Adelman, in announcing the nominees in 25 categories spanning motion picture and television.
Sandra Oh, star of the critically acclaimed BBC America drama series “Killing Eve,” and Andy Samberg, star of NBC’s Golden Globe-winning comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” will co-host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
The 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony will air LIVE coast to coast on NBC on Sunday, January 6 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from The Beverly Hilton. Produced by dick clark productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 countries worldwide.

About the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) was founded in 1943 as the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association (HFCA) by a group of entertainment journalists representing world media in Hollywood, who realized the need to unite and organize to gain the recognition and access to studios and talent accorded to the domestic press. All qualified journalists were accepted, with the bold goal of “Unity Without Discrimination of Religion or Race.” A year later, the HFCA created the Golden Globe Awards which, to this day, the entire membership selects, votes on and awards every year for outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television. This year marked the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards. Members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world’s most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe® Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate more than $33 million to 80 entertainment-related charities, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts over the last 25 years.
