One of the most prestigious award ceremonies for television and movies will be taking place on January 8, 2017. The upcoming 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards is meant to honor the best in film and American television in 2016. Some of the categories include Best Motion Picture, Best Performance in a Motion Picture, Best Supporting Performance, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Original Score, Best Series, Best Performance in a Series, and much more. We think you get the idea.
Here at Spike’s Trophies, we’re one of the top makers of custom plaques and trophies in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. One of our favorite parts of the Golden Globe Awards is when each of the selected winners receives their own brilliant statuette. Not only do these awards look beautiful, but they also represent a special time in that person’s or team of people’s lives. We believe that this moment captures the reason why trophies exist in the first place – to recognize a special achievement or commemorate a special event.
