The Golden Globe Awards 2024, scheduled for Sunday, January 7, is one of the most-anticipated events in showbiz. And on this occasion, the brightest stars from around the world are expected to gather to celebrate the excellence in film and television. The award ceremony also marks the commencement of the awards season in Hollywood. 

Golden Globe Awards 2024 would be broadcasted live from Beverly Hills, California. While the awards event has been traditionally dominated by Hollywood films and music, in recent years, India too has made a mark by winning the prestigious awards. Last year, ‘RRR’ made waves at the Golden Globes by bagging the Best Song award for ‘Naatu Naatu’. This year, no Indian film or original soundtrack has been nominated, but nonetheless, let’s look at India’s journey at the Golden Globe Awards in recent times.
