Golden Globes Unveils New Trophy for 2019 Ceremony
The updated model no longer has a marble base.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association on Thursday revealed a redesigned Golden Globe trophy. The new look will debut at the organization's 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 6, 2019.
One of the primary changes made to the trophy is the absence of a square marble base, replaced instead with a cylindrical metal one. The new trophy consists of zinc, brass and bronze and weighs 7.8 pounds, 2.3 pounds more than last year's trophy.
It's also slightly larger — last year's edition was 10.75 inches tall with a base width of 3.5 inches, while this year's trophy is 11.5 inches tall with a base width of 3.75 inches.
This isn't the first time the statuette has gotten a makeover. In 2009, the HFPA gave it a new marble base and a more durable, accurate metal globe on top. Composer Alexandre Desplat observed the change during his Shape of Water win last year, noting that it had a "different color" than the trophy he won in 2007.
This year's Golden Globe nominations will be announced Dec. 6.
