Press Release

CBS and The Golden Globe Awards announced today a new five-year deal to broadcast the awards show on the network and stream live on Paramount+. The new agreement kicks off with the January 2025 broadcast.

CBS’ recent broadcast of the 81st Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 7, averaged 9.96 million viewers (Nielsen Live+7-Day national ratings), up nearly 50% from last year, its largest audience since 2020. The telecast was also the third-largest livestreamed CBS special event on Paramount+ ever in terms of AMA and reach.

“CBS’ collaboration with the Globes for this year’s broadcast was a big win for both of us and established strong momentum for awards shows in 2024,” said George Cheeks, president and CEO of CBS. “The Globes is a one-of-a-kind live event that adds another marquee special and valuable promotional platform to CBS’ annual calendar. I’m excited to expand the partnership with Jay and the entire team to continue to drive the Globes forward.”

“We’re so proud to continue to call CBS our home for the Golden Globes,” said Jay Penske, chairman and CEO of Penske Media and Dick Clark Productions. “CBS stepped up for the Globes during a very challenging time, and inherently understood its value, while having the foresight, imagination and conviction to bring this iconic show to its many platforms. We’ve long admired CBS’ commitment to some of the greatest cultural live events and partnering for the long term further cements this show’s legacy and incredible place in history.”

“Today marks a significant milestone for the Globes as we solidify our partnership with CBS and Paramount+ for the next five years,” said Helen Hoehne, president of the Golden Globes. “We are incredibly proud of the audience we garnered in 2024 and look forward to building upon the immense success to make the 82nd annual Golden Globe Awards the best and most memorable show yet.” 

The Golden Globe Awards, often referred to as Hollywood’s “Biggest Party of the Year,” is a major night on the calendar for live viewing. It is also the largest awards show in the world to celebrate the best of both film and television.

Produced and owned by Dick Clark Productions, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 185 countries worldwide.
