Now We Know Exactly How Much Golden Globes Airtime Was Consumed by People Walking to the Stage — and Who Took the Longest

If it seemed as though the winners at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony took a long time to reach the stage, a new report by The Washington Post confirms that perception. The report says 10% of the broadcast was consumed by people walking to the stage.

On average, winners needed “29 seconds to kiss their significant others, shake hands with their tablemates and navigate the long and winding walk from their seats to the stage,” the story reports.

“‘Dancing on the Edge’ star Jacqueline Bisset took the longest time, at a meandering 66 seconds; Amy Adams did a little American hustle of her own, reaching the stage in a tidy 11 seconds,” the piece notes. All together, it added up to 12 minutes of the 122-minute broadcast, or about 10% of the show’s length.

The report adds: “The Golden Globes were a disaster of table arrangement.”

  1. And here we have just one of the many, many reasons I stopped watching, several years ago, the self-indulgent, smelly garbage called the Golden Globes.

  2. I did pretty well. My rough guess was at least 10 minutes.
