Golden Globes Alter Awards Eligibility Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

"Shockwaves from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic have made their first major impact on the awards season ahead.

The Hollywood Foreign Press a*sociation — the journalist collective that each year hands out its Golden Globe awards — announced Thursday it has amended its eligibility standards for movies as the viral outbreak has forced movie theaters around the world to close as a means to contain the spread if COVID-19.

New rules stipulate the following with regards to motion picture screenings: "Distributors must contact the HFPA to arrange a screening date on the official HFPA calendar that meets the timing requirements of the Golden Globes eligibility rules (i.e. not later than one week after the release of English-language motion pictures in Los Angeles)," and "by that date, distributors must provide all HFPA members with a screening link or a DVD copy of the motion picture so that members may view it at home. This alternate screening procedure is in effect from March 15 until April 30, 2020, with this period subject to later review and extension."

The HFPA further changed its requirements for movie release formats, indicating that "motion pictures that had a bona fide theatrical release planned to begin in Los Angeles during the period from March 15 to April 30, 2020 (this period is subject to later review and extension) may instead be released first on a television format (e.g. subscription streaming service, subscription cable channel, broadcast television, etc.) and will still be eligible for the Golden Globe motion picture awards."

Previously, the HFPA mandated that contending films needed to be made available for exhibition in Los Angeles-area movie theaters or on a pay-per-view cable or digital service outside of a subscription-based medium, and that an official screening for its voting members had to be arranged at a third-party facility in the region.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were previously announced as hosts for the planned Golden Globes ceremony in 2021, though a ceremony date has yet to be confirmed.

Thus far, theatrical closures tied to the coronavirus outbreak have prompted studios to drop new releases like The Invisible Man, Onward, The Hunt, Emma, and more on digital services shortly after they debut on movie screens.

EW has reached out to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for confirmation on whether Oscars eligibility will similarly be altered in the wake of COVID-19."
