The Golden Globes, which are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will make a tentative return to the mainstream after being boycotted by its broadcast partner NBC and several Hollywood stars, led by Tom Cruise, last year over allegations of racism, sexism and other forms of misconduct.
The award ceremony will be held in Los Angeles on January 10 (early morning of January 11 for India) and will be hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael.
