Peter Finch's Golden Globe for his memorable performance in Network
Description                           Estimate: $15,000+          

Iconic original Golden Globe posthumously awarded to Peter Finch for his role as Howard Beale in the 1976 film Network. The award trophy measures approximately 9″ tall with a base of 3 x 3, weighs 2.85 pounds, and bears a neatly engraved plaque on the front of the marble stand, “Peter Finch, Best Motion Picture Actor, Drama, ‘Network,’ 1976, Hollywood Foreign Press Association, #7728.” In very good to fine condition, with a few tiny cracks to the metal globe and a ‘rattle,’ as if something has become detached inside of the globe; these are merely superficial flaws, and the award is structurally sound. Accompanied by an original program for the 34th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held on January 29, 1977. Written by Paddy Chayefsky and directed by Sidney Lumet, Network was Finch’s final feature film and one of the greatest commercial and critical successes of his prolific career. Sadly, he passed away on January 14, 1977, before he was able to reap the fruits of his labor—in addition to winning this Golden Globe, Finch was also awarded the first-ever posthumous Oscar. Network has continued to earn acclaim and accolades over the years, and since 2000 has been selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, inducted into the Producers Guild of America Hall of Fame, and named one of the greatest one hundred American films by the American Film Institute.
