Unlike other awards shows, the Globes separates its film honors into best drama and best musical or comedy categories. The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. also hands out hardware to television shows. That’s not the only distinction. The Globes are a looser, boozier affair than the more staid Oscars, with A-list stars downing flutes of Moet between victory speeches, and occasionally taking the stage in a visibly intoxicated state. Beyond slurred words, the organization has attracted attention for some head-turning choices over the years, nominating films such as “The Tourist” or “Burlesque,” and back in 1982, the honoring the likes of Pia Zadora, a performer better known for satirizing awards shows than appearing at them.

This year’s awards are being unveiled at a tumultuous time in Hollywood history. Bombshell reports about Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged sexual harassment and abuse have widened to ensnare other industry figures. Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Dustin Hoffman, and Matt Lauer are just a few of the major media and entertainment personalities who are now facing accusations of misconduct. The results of the fallout were evident on Monday. The Weinstein Company, which used to dominate awards shows with its stable of tony dramas and comedies, was completely shut out of the Globes, with “Wind River,” its well-received crime drama, failing to pick up any nominations. Jeffrey Tambor, who previously was honored for his work as a transgender professor in “Transparent,” also failed to pick up a nomination after he was accused of harassment. Tambor’s future with the series is unclear.

Globe winners aren’t always predictive of future Oscars glory. Last year, the organization gave its top musical/comedy prize to “La La Land” and its best drama statue to “Moonlight,” which went on to pick up the Academy Award for Best Picture. However, it failed to recognize the two previous Best Picture Oscar winners, “Spotlight” and “Birdman.”
