Golden Globe Awards
The first award show was held in 1944, and in 1950 the Cecil B. DeMille Award was introduced to recognize an individual's outstanding contributions to the entertainment industry. Revenue generated from the show goes to entertainment-related charities such as the Young Artist Foundation. The Carol Burnett Award for Achievement in Television was created in 2018.
The Golden Globes are aired in over 167 countries worldwide and are usually the third most-watched awards show each year, behind the Oscars and the Grammys. The ceremony was only canceled one time, in 2008, amid the Writers Guild of America strike.
The actress with the most nominations is Meryl Streep, with 32, and Jack Lemmon has 22 under his belt.
