Golden Globes group to air starry dinner online

By

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The organization behind the Golden Globes is hosting another star-studded, Champagne-soaked dinner — this time for online broadcast.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will award its annual grants to nonprofit arts groups at a dinner ceremony Thursday set to stream live on its website, GoldenGlobes.org.

The international journalists' organization has long shared a portion of its awards-show earnings through grants and scholarships presented at a private luncheon. Last year's luncheon was also streamed online.

This is the first time the presentation will take place over dinner, which HFPA President Theo Kingma says makes it "an even more special event." He says the event could eventually be televised to expand focus on the nonprofit groups it honors.
