For the first time in its 78-year history, the Golden Globes will be hosted from multiple locations when it goes live on Feb. 28. Fey will host from The Rainbow Room at the top of New York City's Rockefeller Center while Poehler will helm the ceremony from its traditional home at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills. While this is a first for the Globes, the Academy Awards had several bicoastal ceremonies in the mid-1950s. In 1955, the 27th Academy Awards ceremony on NBC was hosted by Bob Hope in Hollywood and Thelma Ritter in New York City. "The decision to station Fey on the East Coast and Poehler on the West Coast comes as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, NBC and Globes producers Dick Clark Prods. continue to iron out plans for this year’s awards show and adjust to the realities of mounting such a telecast during the COVID-19 pandemic," reports Variety's Michael Schneider. "Among details still to be revealed: Whether presenters and nominees will be invited to participate in person, by remote means or via a mixture of both (which is what the Primetime Emmys did last September). By having two production bases on both coasts, that could allow for more opportunities to include talent working on the East Coast or in Europe who might not otherwise be able to travel to Los Angeles. It also presumably allows Fey to remain put in her home base of New York."
