Empire State Development (ESD) today congratulated 22 New York-based productions that earned 46 nominations for the 2020 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The productions generated more than $809 million in spending and created approximately 41,955 new jobs across the state. All nominated productions participated in the New York State Film Tax Credit Program.

“Congratulations to the New York State-based productions nominated for this year’s Golden Globes—their work represents a booming film, television and post-production industry that is contributing billions to the state’s economy and creating opportunity for thousands of workers,” said ESD Acting Commissioner, President & CEO-designate Eric Gertler. “I invite productions to come take advantage of all the picturesque locations, state-of-the-art production facilities and top-notch talent that the Empire State has to offer.”

The New York State Film Tax Credit Program, launched in 2004, has incentivized billions of dollars in economic investment in the Empire State and continues to be the principle factor cited by productions when deciding to film and produce in New York. The 22 productions earning nominations generated more than an estimated $809 million in spending in the state and approximately 41,955 new hires in the state. To date in 2019, 192 film and television projects have applied for the New York State Film Tax Credit Program, estimated to generate 249,466 new hires and more than $4.7 billion in new spending for New York State.
