Everything You Need to Know About the Oscars, GRAMMYs and More

Global pandemic, be damned. This year’s awards season is soldiering on amid unprecedented times — though the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, GRAMMYs and other ceremonies are shaping up to look different than any awards shows we’ve seen before.

This year has seen movie theaters around the world close their doors due to the coronavirus pandemic — with studios repeatedly pushing release dates and film festivals scrapping plans or moving online — prompting awards bodies to postpone their respective telecasts and adjust eligibility rules to account for continued uncertainty.

Below, ET has your handy awards season calendar to keep you up to date as we learn more about what’s to come for the Oscars, Golden Globes, GRAMMYs, BAFTA Awards and more.

The 78th annual Golden Globe Awards — originally scheduled for the first Sunday in January — took place on Feb. 28 as a bicoastal telecast hosted by Tina Fey from the The Rainbow Room in NYC and Amy Poehler from The Beverly Hilton in California, with nominees appearing virtually from around the world.

Winners:Nomadland and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm were the night’s top drama and comedy film, respectively, while The Crown and Schitt’s Creek dominated the TV side. See the full list of winners.
