Los Angeles: Hollywood's annual awards season revs up on Sunday as industry A-listers turn out for the 75th Golden Globes.
Here are 10 fun-filled facts (plus a few bonus tidbits) you probably didn't know about Tinseltown's biggest pre-Oscars prize-giving, organised by the 90-member Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Founded in 1944, the awards were given out for the first 14 years by journalists who were members of the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association, a precursor to the HFPA.
Unlike the Oscar-awarding Academy of Motion Picture, Arts and Sciences, the HPFA doesn't give out technical prizes, sticking to recognising actors, directors, producers and writers.
A total number of 25 awards are up for grabs on Sunday -- 14 in film and 11 in television.
