Richard Gere and Renee Zellweger won a Golden Globe for Chicago The Golden Globes
The Globes are another big film awards ceremony in America. They've been going since 1944.

Like the Baftas, they also sometimes predict who might win Oscars, so they're pretty important too.

They're different to some of the other major awards as the best picture and actor categories are split into two - drama, and musical/comedy.

They're run by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which is made up of foreign journalists who report all the film gossip from Hollywood back to their home countries.

The association purposely holds the awards before the Oscars, to make sure their choices aren't influenced by the Hollywood bigwigs.

They're called the Globes because the shape of the award is a globe, which is golden and has a strip of film reel running around it.
