Founded in the 1940s during World War II, the HFPA was originally comprised of a handful of L.A.-based overseas journalists who sought to bridge the international community with Hollywood, and to provide distraction from the hardships of war through film. Seventy years later, members of the HFPA represent 55 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world's most respected publications.

Each year, the organization holds the third-most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate more than $23.9 million to entertainment-related charities and scholarship programs.
