IT’S the beginning of the year, which officially marks the start of awards show season.
The first stop on the awards show journey is the Golden Globe Awards on January 9, 2022, followed later by the Oscars award ceremony on March 27, 2022.

Both the Golden Globes and the Oscars are celebrated annually

What are the Golden Globes?

The Golden Globe Award is an accolade bestowed to a winner by 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which celebrates excellence in cinema and television in the United States and abroad. 

The yearly ceremony and dinner, where the winners are revealed, are a big element of the awards. 

In January 1944, the first Golden Globe Awards were presented, honoring the finest in cinema and television, including cast and crew. 

The Golden Globe Awards now include 25 categories, including 14 for feature movies and 11 for television.

Each year, the Golden Globe Awards are held in January. 

What are the Oscars?

The Oscars – or Academy Awards – are an annual award that recognizes excellence in filmmaking. 

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), which organizes and oversees the Oscars, is more properly known as The Academy Awards. 

The Academy selects the winners, and the prizes are frequently presented at a formal ceremony. Louis B. Mayer, a studio executive of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, founded the AMPAS. 

The inaugural award ceremony took place in 1929 when 15 statuettes were given out. The Academy Awards currently have over a dozen categories and encompass a wide range of film genres. 

Each year in February, the Academy Awards are held; however, they have been moved back from their original air dates in the past years because of the coronavirus pandemic.

What is the difference between the Golden Globes and the Oscars?

Because both awards are given to recognize achievement in movies, they might be confusing to those who do not follow the world of entertainment on a regular basis. 

One significant distinction between the two award shows is that the Golden Globes also honor television, while the Oscars honor exclusively film. 

The Golden Globe winners are chosen by a small group of 93 members of the HFPA, but the Oscar winners are chosen by roughly 60,000 industry professionals who are members of the AMPAS. 

The Globes are also a bigger event than the Oscars, with food and beverages offered, whereas the Oscars typically only feature the awards ceremony with the remainder of the celebration taking place in the after-party.

Finally, in comparison to the Oscars, the Golden Globes have more categories. 

The Oscars, on the other hand, feature distinct categories for screenplay, original music score, cinematography, and writing.

The Golden Globes and the Academy Awards are two distinct categories of awards. Winning at least one, if not both, of these awards, is a dream come true for many actors.
