Jon Cartu Announced Golden Globes Clarify Eligibility Rules, Add Anthology Seri…


After earlier altering eligibility rules for motion pictures to reflect the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has revealed its annual exhaustive list of eligibility rules and regulations in all their movie and tv categories.  There has been very little change — other than the previously announced allowance for  streaming and VOD movies to now compete without a seven day theatrical requirement until further notice — except that the organization has recognized the increasing presence of Anthology TV Series  and has added them to the titles of Limited Series and TV movies in both program and lead acting categories. It is now known as Best Television  Limited Series, Anthology Series or Motion Picture Made For Television,  and the title change also applies to Lead Actor and Actress in those categories as long as that performer was in at least 50% of the anthology series.  HBO Max’s Love Life which premieres today would be an example, an ongoing anthology series in which the lead actor changes from season to season. Thus current star Anna Kendrick would be eligible,  but a lead actor that appears in just one episode of an anthology series (ie Black Mirror) would not be.  That is the one major change announced today.

The rest of the rules contain just minor tweaks.  Now the bigger question is that due to the pandemic, will there be a Golden Globes come January 2021  and what will it look like. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to return as hosts but no date has yet been announced by NBC for the telecast.

Here is the entire list:
