The Golden Globes are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Per the Globes website, the group was found during World War II. More about the organization:
[T]he HFPA was originally comprised of a handful of LA based overseas journalists who sought to bridge the international community with Hollywood, and to provide distraction from the hardships of war through film. Sixty-eight years later, members of the HFPA represent 55 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world’s most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe® Awards, which have enabled the organization to donate more than $12 million to entertainment related charities and scholarship programs.
Last year, "The Artist" and "The Descendants" won Best Picture in, respectively, the Musical or Comedy and Drama categories. "Modern Family" and "Homeland" won those awards on the television side.
