Award show season starts on the next page of the calendar, and we thought that our celebrity-savvy followers would appreciate an update on what’s happening in Hollywood and how this year’s event calendar has changed. The Super Bowl muscled its way into the schedule, and the Winter Olympics pinned down the competition, effectively pushing major award shows into March or January.
The 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards kick off the trophy-giving season on Friday, January 8th at the Nokia Theatre. You can help start the party with VIP tickets, red carpet credentials and passes to the star-studded pre-party for this popular music, movies and TV award show.
Celebs barely have time to rest before they’re gearing up for the Golden Globes® on Sunday, January 12, 2014. The Beverly Hilton will be hosting this event, as it has for the past 50 years. Parties hosted by major networks and film distributors, like Warner Brothers, HBO and AMC, are the main draw at this ultra-exclusive gala.
The award show relay continues on Thursday, January 16th at the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, formerly broadcast by VH1. This eerily accurate Oscar-predicting event also happens in the L.A. area and attracts all kinds of celebrities and actors.
The SAG® Awards are one of the most popular award shows where peers vote for their favorite performances. This is one award show where you can see the most successful film actors and stars of the most popular TV shows in one place. This exclusive event is happening at the Shrine Auditorium on January 18th.
February sports have pushed the Grammy® Awards back into January. This year, the event is taking place on January 26th at the ever-popular Nokia Theatre.
Sports take over February. It all kicks off with Super Bowl XLVIII. The big game is scheduled for February 2nd at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium. New Jersey weather in February means you should book VIP seats as soon as possible.
February is Winter Olympics month. The festivities rule three consecutive weekends from February 7th through the 23rd. For everyone who always wanted to visit Sochi, Russia, this is your chance!
Award show season comes to a close with the big kahuna, the Academy Awards®, which are happening on March 2nd, instead of late February. Like the Golden Globes®, parties are the main draw. The Weinsteins host pre- and post-Oscar® parties. Elton John has a fabulous charity event, and the Night of 100 Stars hosts a dinner and viewing party populated by Oscar® winners.
Although the Academy Awards® mark the end of award show season, there are plenty of other award shows like the ACMs, the BET Experience and other events that are traditionally held during the spring and summer. Now that you know the award show schedule, it’s time to populate your personal event calendar.
