Ernst & Young LLP, a leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, and services to strategic growth markets, has once again tabulated and safeguard the results of the Golden Globe® Awards. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the awards, and the 40th year that the firm has overseen the voting and tabulation process for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Winners are known only to three senior Ernst & Young LLP professionals in advance of the telecast.
The firm is also responsible for qualifying voting members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, confirming that their credentials are current and meet the standards set forth by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
“During the past four decades, Ernst & Young LLP has confirmed that the Golden Globe voting process meets standards that support the integrity and security of the results,” said Andy Sale, Ernst & Young LLP partner responsible for the 2013 Golden Globe® Awards. “With the globalization of entertainment, the importance of the award has greatly increased in recent years.”
