Fans will be eager to catch up with the nomination ceremony as many of them and experts alike have been debating hard on which films and performances will bag nominations.
While they will wait a short while to determine if their predictions are correct, they already know who will receive an award during the awards show.
Late in January, it was announced that seven-time Golden Globe Award winner Jane Fonda will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the awards ceremony.
In a statement, the President of The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, HFPA, Ali Sar, said the association takes great pride in bestowing the 83-year-old Fonda with the award.
However, some details of the awards show remain unknown. It is yet to be known if award presenters and nominees will attend the show in person, virtually, or both.
While the countdown to the awards show begins, HFPA, NBC, and Golden Globes producers Dick Clark Productions continue to perfect plans for a seamless show while adjusting to the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic.
