Golden Globes Pick Mid-January Date for Award Show

The 2012 Golden Globe Awards will be presented on Jan. 15, but which network will air the star-studded presentation is still an open question for a federal judge to decide.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the date on Thursday without mentioning a specific broadcaster.

The group is locked in a battle with longtime producer Dick Clark Productions over whether the show will air on NBC as it has for nearly two decades. Last year the press association sued the production company, which is now under new ownership, claiming that it negotiated a new broadcast deal without permission.

The producer claims the NBC contract is valid.

A trial to resolve the broadcast rights is scheduled for September.

More than 17 million people tuned in to this year’s awards show.
