Emmys vs. Golden Globes
What's the difference between the Emmys and the Golden Globes??
- Put simply, the Emmys only cover television while the Globes cover film and television.
- The Emmys, like the Oscars are determined in the film industry, are decided by voting members of the television industry; usually, voting membership is granted by application (with sufficient work credentials) or prior nomination in the Emmys. Actors vote for the acting categories; directors vote for the directing categories; all voters in the television industry can vote for Best Drama and Best Comedy Series. Conversely, the Golden Globe nominees and winners are determined by a pool of only 22 journalists in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and have no direct inside determination by members of the film industry.

Image to place in each award article
In the award articles (1st-63rd) there has been an effort to put images from films, then some got deleted, etc. I would suggest to follow the academy awards on this and place the Globe image (unframed) in each. Simple and gives a quality look to the page. Hoverfish 17:51, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
New Star of the Year in a Motion Picture
Wasn't this an award at one time? If so, why is it not on the page under retired awards?
- It was an award at one time, but this set of articles is so incomplete that a lot of the key aspects of the awards have been left out. If you want to know previous awards, and their winners, see the official site. If you have any questions, please contact me at my talk page. Ian Manka 21:25, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
When did they begin?
This article says 1954, but the dates on the individual awards pages go back to the 1940s. Cop 633 14:56, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
What is the Henrietta Award exactly, and why the name?
While editing Charles Bronson I've found the information that he won a Henrietta Award, but I was able to find next to nothing about it, except that it was a "special" Golden Globe. Can somebody create a two-sentence stub? --Kubanczyk (talk) 15:34, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Buying the award
A golden globe article without mention of Pia Zadora? Mention the phrase "Golden Globes" to some people and the first thing that comes to mind is the fact that Pia Zadora once won an award for the butterfly, allegedly because her husband Meshulam Ricklis "bought" the award for her.
I've always suspected that the Golden Globes were "fixed" or could be "bought." Some mention of this should be made in this article.
A hard hitting expose of the truth behind these rumors is out of the question, apparently..........
- Unsubstantiated rumors have no place in Wikipedia. If you have a credible reference nothing is stopping you from editing this article and adding this. Many articles have a "Controversy" section. You can trivially create one.
- Indeed you are wrong to say "A hard hitting expose of the truth behind these rumors is out of the question, apparently" when you have complete freedom to add the expose yourself.

- Yes, if anyone wants to look into this there's a very interesting documentary called 'The Golden Globes: Hollywood's Dirty Little Secret,' which goes into detail about the legitimacy of the awards and specific dubious events from its history. If you find just an article about the documentary I'm sure you'll have a good deal of information to start with. --Breshkovsky (talk) 07:27, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
Are final ballots e-mailed as implied by a recent change? This seems like fine-grained detail. I suggest "sent to the membership" if there's a dispute, otherwise the original mailed seems most plausible. Mtd2006 (talk) 12:50, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
There is a possibility to download perfectly done pictures of the awards here: http://www.goldenglobes.org/awardimage/index.html The only thing is to ask them for permission, which should be no problem to get. Someone? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sgracanin (talk • contribs) 13:44, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
It occurs to me that this awards show has grown in prominence over the last 10 - 15 years or so. Is this true? If so, can something about it be added to the article? Hires an editor (talk) 17:43, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
Template restyling opinion needed

Award by lobby??
From the Controversy section: "winners were determined by lobby; if winners did not attend the event then another name would be chosen"
Sources for subarticles
I wasn't sure where else to put this, but a lot of the sub-articles (ie, 33rd Golden Globe Awards) are exclusively referenced with IMDB. As I understand, it is not considered best practice to use IMBD as a source (as with WP, much of it is user-generated). While doing research on one Golden Globe nominee, I found a couple better sources:
The latter cite is from the World Public Library Organization and sourced from the World Heritage Encyclopedia, which must make it a much more reliable source than IMDB. I'm not particularly interested in the Golden Globe articles and don't have time to improve dozens of them. But anybody who is, and does, ought to look to incorporating these sources into these articles. <> Alt lys er svunnet hen (talk) 21:50, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
