The Golden Globes is refusing to let the pandemic get in the way of its party. 

The ceremony will be held Feb 28, 2021, in Beverly Hills with previously announced hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said Monday (Jun 22).

The date, as with that of other awards, had been delayed amid the COVID-19 disruption. It's usually held on the first Sunday in January. But with the Academy Awards having staked out Apr 25 last week, the Globes jumped on the February date the Oscars had previously held.

The Golden Globes, set in a hotel ballroom that's arranged more like an over-sized dinner party with drinks than a formal ceremony, positions itself as the freewheeling start to awards season. Exactly which movies and TV shows will be eligible for honours remains to be seen, given the virus-caused delay in production and movie theatre screenings that's only now easing. 

Organisers said they will provide guidance on eligibility, the voting period and the timing of the nominations announcement but didn't specify when.
