  • The Golden Globes were given out by journalists who were members of the association until 1958, when the stars Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. walked up on stage with their whisky glasses and cigarettes and took over the stage and the responsibility of hosting the show. They were called on by the HFPA for a repeat performance the very next year.
  • Clean sweep: Doctor Zhivago(1966), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”(1976), and A star is Born(1977) won all five Golden Globe Awards they were nominated for.
  • Most Globes won by a film: five, shared by five winners: Doctor Zhivago(1966), Love Story (1971), The Godfather (1973), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1976), and A Star is Born (1977).
  • The film with the most nominations: nine for Nashville(1976) won just a single Golden Globe for the Best Song I’m Easy by Keith Carradine.
