The awards show begins airing live on NBC at 8 p.m. EST from the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The Golden Globes is the biggest awards show leading up to the Oscars and has a more relaxed, clubby atmosphere. The awards are given by the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in recognition of excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign.
The 2013 awards season got going with the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday, followed by the Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday and now the Golden Globes on Sunday.
Robert Pattinson is the latest actor to be added to the presenter roster for the Golden Globes. He will be joining George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Garner , Debra Messing, Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Kristen Wiig, Jeremy Renner, Amanda Seyfried and Will Ferrell in the all-star group of presenters, according to the Golden Globes website.
The most Globes a film has ever won is five, an honor shared by “Doctor Zhivago”(1966), “Love Story” (1971), “The Godfather” (1973), “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1976), and “A Star is Born” (1977).
“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” (1967) and “The Godfather, Part III” (1991) each were nominated for seven Golden Globes but took none.
Meryl Streep has won the most Golden Globes, eight, followed by Jack Nicholson with six; Francis Ford Coppola, Shirley MacLaine, Rosalind Russell and Oliver Stone each have five.
Even though Russell won all five Golden Globes she was nominated for, she was never honored with an Oscar.
Streep has been nominated for a Golden Globe the most times, with 27 nominations and Jack Lemmon comes in second with 22 nominations.
