Awards shows have increasingly suffered from waning audiences, but the Golden Globes have an edge on several fronts: the show is considered to have a less formal, more freewheeling spirit (since it's staged as a banquet with an open bar), and it's also typically the first out of the gate in the new year.
The 76th Golden Globes will air live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 6.
