It looks like the gap between next year’s Academy Awards and Golden Globes has just been stretched further. The two ceremonies historically have lived about a month across from each other, but after HFPA announced today’s news of the Globes airing on the second Sunday of next January, that award season layover appears to near two months’ times. In fairness, most of that is on the Oscars though as ABC commands exposure for their big event. Just a few weeks ago, they revealed that the more widely-watched of the two will be airing in March to avoid a head-to-head with the Winter Olympics.
