The first Golden Globe Awards were held in 1944, at the 20th Century Fox studios. It has since beenheld annually, at various locations. Throughout the next decade, it was held at the the Beverly HillsHotel, and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.in 1950 the Hollywood Foreign Press Association made the decision to establish a special award thatrecognizes outstanding contributions to the entertainment industry. To give importance to the award andrecognize its subject as an international figure in the entertainment industry, the initial award waspresented to director and producer Cecil B. DeMille. The official name of the award thus became theCecil B. DeMille Award.In 1963 the Miss Golden Globe concept was introduced. In its inaugural year there were two MissGolden Globes, one for film and one for television. They were respectively, Eva Six of Beach Party andOperation Bikini, and Donna Douglas.In 1964, national telecast was distributed through a special segment on

2008 disruption
On January 7, 2008, it was announced that due to the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike, the65th Golden Globe Awards would not betelecast live. The ceremony was faced with a threat by strikingwriters to picket the event and by actors, threatening to boycott the ceremony, rather than cross picketlines. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association was forced to adopt another approach for the broadcast.NBC originally had exclusive broadcast rights to the ceremonies, but on January 11, HFPA PresidentJorge Camara announced there would be no restrictions placed onmedia outlets covering the January 13press conference, announcing the winners at 6:00pm PST.
As a result, E!, CNN, the TV GuideNetwork and KNBC-TV, the network's Los Angeles affiliate, aired the 31-minute event, emanating fromthe Grand Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel live, leaving NBC to fill the hour from 9:00–10:00pmET with announcements, made after-the-fact by
 Access Hollywood 
hosts Billy Bush and Nancy O'Dell.
The remaining hours of programming, set aside for the ceremonies by the network, were filled with aspecial two-hour edition of 
, hosted by Matt Lauer, that included film clips, interviews withsome of the nominees and commentary from comedienne Kathy Griffin and the panelists from
