The Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical was first awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association as a separate category in 1951. Previously, there was a single award for "Best Actress in a Motion Picture", but the splitting allowed for recognition of it and the Best Actress – Drama.
The formal title has varied since its inception. In 2005, it was officially called "Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical". As of 2014[update], the wording is "Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical".
