The Story Behind The Golden Globe Awards


Dear Readers,

Welcome to the limited special edition of Shine On Hollywood Magazine ("SOHM") issue featuring the publication’s focus on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the “HFPA") history and the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards; showcasing red carpet photos and videos of nominees and winners!

We are fortunate here in Hollywood to live in a place where each changing season brings some form of new excitement. From the hot, sexy summer pool parties to the glamorous film award season to the party-filled holiday season, there is always something here for everyone.
This month our focus is on the “Golden Globe Awards!”

Although the Golden Globes is often thought of as the “Party of the Year” in the entertainment world, it is that but also so much more. It’s also a celebration of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the “HFPA”), the organization behind the Golden Globes. The HFPA started during World War II when people were hungry for some form of diversion and sought out films as a form of escape. A small group of international journalists based in Los Angeles banded together to share the latest in entertainment news from home and around the world to fill this hunger.

The HFPA created the Golden Globe awards ceremony to further their goals of highlighting the world of entertainment. Today, the glitzy affair celebrates the best in film and television and also raises money to fund the HFPA Charitable Trust which, in the past 31 years, has given away more than $29 million in fellowships and grants to film schools and non-profit organizations.

Who said you can’t work hard, have fun and do good work all at the same time?!

We encourage you to “Let them be your motivation.”
