Golden Globes, USA
- Honoring of TV achievements began in 1956.
- Traditionally, Miss Golden Globe, who assists in the Golden Globes ceremony, is the daughter of a well-known performer.
- The broadcast of the ceremony is withdrawn from NBC, because the FCC accused the Hollywood Foreign Press Association of tipping off winners ahead of time and thus "misleading the public about the integrity of the awards process." The ban holds 9 years before the gala finally will be live broadcast on television again.
- This year marks the first and so far only three way tie in the history of the Golden Globes in the Lead Actress - Drama category.
- Due to the ongoing WGA writer's strike the awards ceremony is called off and the winners are read out at a press conference.
