The Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globes will make a tentative return to the mainstream after being boycotted last year by its broadcast partner NBC and several Hollywood stars, led by Tom Cruise, over allegations of racism, sexism, and other forms of misconduct.
The award ceremony, which will be hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael, will take place in Los Angeles on January 10 (early morning of January 11 in India).
