Fun Facts on EY and the Golden Globe Awards

What's behind the hoopla when major award shows bring out the accountants? Quite a bit, if you're Ernst & Young, who has kept the tally for Golden Globe Award winners for more than 30 years.

Already, the firm is at work for this year's broadcast on Sunday, Jan. 23, and "3" seems to be a magic number. For three days prior to the broadcast, only three people - two EY CPAs and one assistant, know who the winners will be.

Remember the 5:30 a.m. press conference in December to announce the nominees? The same three knew who the nominees were a full 36 hours prior to the conference.

More than anything else, the Golden Globes and other award shows serve to spotlight the accounting profession in a positive light by demonstrating the CPA abilities, even in the lucrative entertainment spectrum. Lst year, more than 50 million people watched the Globes.
