The nominations for the 79th Golden Globe Awards were read Monday in Los Angeles by rapper Snoop Dogg. The awards are presented annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) to film and television contributors from the United States and around the world.
It is not yet known where the award ceremony will take place and what form it will take. Normally, the gala can be seen on channel NBC, but it previously announced that it would not host. They made this decision because there was a lot of criticism about the diversity in the HFPA. The organization did announce that it would make changes to better guarantee that diversity.
