The Golden Globes

Stars, journalists, and guests freely mingle during the telecast, lending the show an air of glamorous informality. In the history of the Globes, winners have mooned the crowd (Jack Nicholson in 1999) and been called out of the bathroom to accept their statues (Christine Lahti in 1998). But amid the good times, the awards have steadily grown, today commanding a worldwide audience of over 250 million viewers and raising more than $23.9 million in the past 27 years to entertainment-related charities.
