Emmys vs. Golden Globes[edit]

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[edit]

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[edit]

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?[edit]

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?[edit]

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[edit]

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.
Nick Beeson (talk) 15:51, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
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)

Rules Completed[edit]

I read the rules posted by the HFPA and summarized them completely. All important rules are mentioned. Fine grained detail was left out. Nick Beeson (talk) 15:51, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

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)

image[edit]

could really do with a pictire of what a golden globe looks like. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.67.39.140 (talk) 18:35, 14 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 (talkcontribs) 13:44, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Prominence[edit]

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[edit]

Please comment at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Television#Adding_seasons_to_award_winners.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 15:16, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Year added to template title[edit]

I have added year ranges to many award template titles. Please comment at the centralized location if there are issues.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 07:10, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Award by lobby??[edit]

From the Controversy section: "winners were determined by lobby; if winners did not attend the event then another name would be chosen"

This seems somewhat important. A further explanation of this and how the system has changed since then belongs in the History section. Tad Lincoln (talk) 04:30, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: not moved. There is a clear consensus that these moves are appropriate in most cases, but a strong argument that there are some exceptions. I am sure that the nominator was right to try handling this as one group discussion rather than series of individual discussions, but the discussion has revealed that not all cases are the same. Feel free to open new individual discussions on these pages without delay ... tho I suggest that the most stable outcomes would be achieved by only having 2 or 3 discussions open simultaneously. -- BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 11:25, 4 March 2014 (UTC)



– I believe that the successful move at the Academy Awards page speaks for itself here. These pages all focus on the award ceremony, not the awards themselves. --Relisted. BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 13:22, 16 February 2014 (UTC) Corvoe (speak to me) 21:00, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Support, but not per nominator's reason. These articles have more to do with the respective awards ceremonies and not the physical award statuettes themselves. Since it is common to refer to the ceremony in the plural ("the Academy Awards," "the Grammys," etc.), I support the requested move. -- Wikipedical (talk) 23:26, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
    • Also, nominator- please be thorough in the request. Make sure you add Satellite Award, TV Land Award, and others that have been left out. -- Wikipedical (talk) 23:29, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
      • I was trying to be thorough, I just couldn't remember every award with this title. Adding those two now, and I've amended my request with your reasoning. Corvoe (speak to me) 16:42, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support all and rewrite WP:PLURAL if necessary to clarify that this is okay. Red Slash 02:58, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support all and agree that WP:PLURAL should be updated to specifically include this type of exception. The singular is used for a particular award to a particular performer; The topics of these articles are best described by the plural. Andrewa (talk) 11:32, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support all (if they are about the ceremonies and not the award itself). © Tbhotch (en-2.5). 21:41, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose all and revert bad precedent — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.120.175.135 (talk) 20:32, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion so a clearer consensus may be reached.
Relisting comment: So far there is a consensus to rename these articles, but only amongst a relatively small number of editors. This proposal involves 21 articles on highly notable topics, so it would be preferable to have input from more editors, to ensure that any consensus is broad enough to be stable. I hope that relisting will encourage more editors to contribute.
Please add new comments below this notice. Thanks, BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 13:22, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.
