Golden Globe Awards

This is probably the only time where television and movie stars come together on one night. The Hollywood Foreign Press gives up the awards to honorable achievements in films and television. The awards for films and television would be divided into a comedy/musical section and a drama section, so they can nominate more films. The Golden Globes usually gives an early indication on who's the favorite to take home Best Picture in the Oscars.
