Golden Globes: Two Months Away, Still No TV Deal — Will They Follow Country Music Awards to Amazon Prime?


The Golden Globes are two months away, and there is still no deal for a TV show or internet broadcast.

But just now, the Academy of Country Music awards announced a two year deal with Amazon Prime. The ACMs, like the Globes, are produced by Dick Clark Productions.

Now some insiders are telling me that the Globes could be headed to Amazon Prime also. Their show is not going back to NBC, and as even Globes owner Todd Boehly recently conceded, no network wants to pay for this show.

The Globes could go to YouTube, but that would be a real last resort. Amazon Prime or Netflix would at least save face in streaming. And with the ACMs set up, it’s possible the Globes will be tucked into that deal.

The Globes are suffering, however. The Critics Choice Awards are set up on the CW Network for January 14th. The Globes come a week earlier, and if the studios don’t see the show as high profile, they may just tell the stars to wait for the CCAs.
