Telecast to Be Aired Live on NBC Nationwide

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) - Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) President, Philip Berk, today announced "The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards" will air on NBC on Sunday, January 16, 2011 from 5-8 (PST) and 8-11 (EST) live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel. 

Produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with the HFPA, The Golden Globes are viewed in more than 160 countries worldwide and is one of the few awards ceremonies to include both motion picture and television achievements. The 2010 show garnered a 14% audience increase from the previous year's broadcast and delivered NBC's biggest non-sports audience in the time period in six years.

About the Hollywood Foreign Press Association:
Founded in the 1940s during World War II, the HFPA was originally comprised of a handful of LA based overseas journalists who sought to bridge the international community with Hollywood, and to provide distraction from the hardships of war through film. Sixty-six years later, members of the HFPA represent 55 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world's most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the Golden Globe Awards, which have enabled the organization to donate more than $10.5 million to entertainment related charities and scholarship programs.
