LOS ANGELES, CA
December 11, 2015 – It’s awards season in Hollywood! Both the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) and Golden Globe Award nominations were announced in recent days, and it turns out that more than 70% of the nominations given in 2015 by both SAG and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), were our exclusive Hollywood Software clients.
The Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) Awards are presented by the SAG-AFTRA Unions, and are the only one of the televised awards shows to exclusively honor performers. It presents thirteen awards for acting in film and television focusing on both individual performances, as well as on the work of the entire ensemble of a drama series and comedy series, and the cast of a motion picture. Voters for these awards are all active, performing members of the Union, numbering more than 100,000 members strong. Check out their website for the Full List of Nominees.
The Golden Globe Awards are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a non-profit organization which has donated over $21.6 million over the past 27 years alone to entertainment-related charities, helping to fund arts and technical scholarships for new film & television professionals. Members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association represent some 55 countries with a combined readership of more than 250 million. Each year members interview more than 400 actors, directors, writers and producers, as well as reporting from film sets and seeing more than 300 films. Members also attend film festivals in other countries in order to seek out interesting and innovative foreign language films and establish cultural bonds with directors, actors, jurors and fellow journalists around the world. Check out their website for the Full List of Nominees.
So once again, congratulations to all the nominees!
“We’re thrilled we got the chance to help you on your journey to success.”
