Golden Camera Award to return to Hamburg for 50-year jubilee

Anniversary show will be held in Hamburg on 27 February 2015 at the Hamburg fair grounds.

The preparations for the 50th Golden Camera Award are in full swing. The gala presentation by Europe’s leading weekly program magazine will take place on February 27, 2015 at the Hamburg Messe exhibition hall. “The Golden Camera has established itself as Germany’s highly prestigious film and television award. And even Hollywood loves our golden trophy and the glamorous event,” says Jochen Beckmann, Publishing Director Program and Women’s Media of FUNKE Program Magazines GmbH. “Which means that we will be rolling out the red carpet and much more to celebrate the award winners in style. With the venue set to take place in Hamburg, the presentation returns to the original city where the award was first presented in 1966.”

Distinguished audience award

Over the past five decades, nearly 700 Golden Cameras have been awarded to top international celebrities and national stars in the television and music industries. Honoured for their lifetime achievements were, inter alia, the German actors Armin Mueller-Stahl, Bruno Ganz, and Mario Adorf, and international stars such as Clint Eastwood, Dustin Hoffmann, Al Pacino, and Diane Keaton. “At this golden anniversary celebration, we will again distinguish outstanding TV personalities and moments that have significantly shaped the history of film and television in recent decades, with the Golden Camera Award,” states Christian Hellmann, Editor-in-Chief of HÖRZU. “Especially the opinion of our readers and the television audience will thereby play an important role.”

The 50th presentation of the Golden Camera Award will take place on February 27, 2015 at Hamburg Messe. ZDF will broadcast the gala on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at 8:15 pm.
