Golden Globe 2023

The Golden Globes, which were cancelled by their US broadcaster last year after claims of racism, misogyny, and conflict of interest, will air again in 2019. NBC cancelled the yearly Hollywood awards ceremony as a result of allegations that the show’s voters lacked diversity. At the time, NBC stated that it wanted to see “real improvement” from the ceremony’s organizer. For the first time since 2008, the ceremony was held in private for this year’s program.

In terms of profile, the Golden Globes are only second to the Oscars, and NBC has broadcast the ceremony since 1996. Los Angeles Times article revealed the organization had not had a single black member for 20 years, its members faced a boycott last year. Due to the expose organizer were also accused of misogyny, racism, and ethical failings, including giving voters “freebies” from the studios whose films they were reviewing. The NBC broadcast for this year’s Golden Globes was cancelled as a result of the allegations, which drove celebrities and publicists to abstain.

Since then, HFPA officials have started a number of public reforms, such as prohibiting members from accepting gifts from film studios in exchange for their support. Six new black members were among the twenty-one who joined last year. More than 100 new voters have joined the organization, including – for the first time – those who are based abroad the US. Even though the return to NBC is only for a single year, it will coincide with the trophy gala’s 80th anniversary.

Some cite the HFPA’s recent move to render the Golden Globes’ assets private by selling the show’s rights to billionaire Todd Boehly, owner of the Chelsea Football Club. According to reports, Mr. Boehly has agreed to pay the founding HFPA members an annual salary of $75,000 (£66,000).
