Golden Globes

Steve Granitz/

Apparently, the Hollywood Foreign Press thinks it's never too soon—or too late, we're guessing—for the A-list elite to engage in a little televised self-congratulation.

Still smarting from this year's strike-stricken ceremony, the accented media corps has announced that next year's Golden Globes will not only be taking place, but will be taking place earlier than any other show in the event's 66-year history: Jan. 11, 2009.

Nominations will be announced on Dec. 11.

The Globes' calendar jump is in line with what's shaping up to be a caffeinated awards season, coming just one day before the Academy Award nomination polls are set to close.

Next year's Oscar contenders will be announced Jan. 22 and the ceremony will be held Feb. 22, the shortest period ever between nominations and awards.
