Household television ratings of the Golden Globe Awards from 1994 to 2019
Television ratings of the Golden Globe Awards 1994-2019
The household TV ratings of the Golden Globe Awards have fluctuated over the years, but 2019 was a relatively good year with a rating of 12.7 – in other words, 12.7 percent of all television-equipped households in the United States were tuning into the broadcast. Since 1995 (when the broadcast had a rating of just 2.5) the best year for globes viewership, or best year in terms of ratings was 1999, where 16.1 percent of U.S. TV households watched the program. In 2008 ratings suddenly dropped dramatically to 4.1 but picked back up again and have remained relatively steady throughout the 2010s.

The Golden Globe Awards

The Golden Globe Awards recognize excellence in film and television both in and outside of the U.S., and are presented every year during the film industry’s awards season. These awards are given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which was established in 1943. Golden Globe Awards can lead to future opportunities for winners and nominees by aligning them with certain industry standards, and a 2019 study revealed that showing Golden Globe wins or nominations on a film poster can even encourage people to go see the movie.

However, like many facets of the movie industry, the Golden Globe Awards have come under scrutiny for their focus on white, male actors. Between 2010 and 2019, a total of 43 men were nominated for the Golden Globe Best Director Award, compared to just two women. Similar issues surrounding equality and diversity have presented themselves with other media awards, including the Oscars. The #OscarsSoWhite movement has been running since 2015 in an attempt to tackle a lack of representation of non-white individuals, and supporters of this movement consider there to be a long way to go before an even balance is struck.
