The annual ceremony at which the awards are presented is normally held every January, and is a major part of the film industry's awards season, which culminates each year in the Academy Awards. The eligibility period for the Golden Globes corresponds to the calendar year (from January 1 through December 31), although the 78th Golden Globe Awards presented an exception to this rule due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cinema.
