As the Golden Globes Make Rule Changes, Will Oscars Follow?
Published on Mar 26, 2020
The 90-member Hollywood Foreign Press Association is changing its Golden Globe Awards eligibility requirements in response to the widespread halt of business as usual due to the global pandemic. The temporary measures will adjust the requirements for Golden Globe Awards eligibility, and are subject to review and extension at any time.
From March 15 until April 30, 2020, movies no longer have to be screened for Globe members ahead of or within one week of theatrical release. If a distributor had booked a movie into theaters, but moved it to cable, television, or streaming after theaters closed, the film will be deemed eligible for the Golden Globes, as long as the members receive a screening link or DVD to view at home ahead of another scheduled screening. The HFPA’s reminders list committee will review every submission.
