Behind the Golden Globes is the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), a non-profit organization comprised of film and television journalists and photographers. The main focus of the association is providing support for the “educational and cultural non-profit organizations whose primary focus is the entertainment industry.” Originally founded in 1943, the association is comprised of 90 members hailing from 55 countries.

The 1st Golden Globe Awards was held in 1944, honoring the best in 1943 filmmaking. The annual event has been held live for award recipients, presenters, and other industry professionals each year except for 2008. Due to the Writers Guild of America strike, the Golden Globes ceremony was replaced by a news conference held on Jan. 14, 2008.
