Golden Globes: Hollywood Foreign Press under fire; NBC cancels 2022 broadcast

The Golden Globes are cancelled in 2022 by NBC due to the Hollywood Foreign press controversy. No show. It may return in 2023.

When the biggest movie star in the world returns his Golden Globes, that's a pretty telling sign your organization needs reform.

I suspect there was a lot of pressure inside the industry after the horrible showing of the Oscars in the ratings to target the Golden Globes, since they were/are ripe for criticism. The thinking probably is that the Oscars will do better with one less major awards show to worry about...it won't work, of course (those great ratings aren't coming back), but I'm guessing that's what the thinking is.

Tom Cruise returns his Golden Globes; NBC cancels 2022 broadcast

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which awards Golden Globes, is being attacked for lack of diversity. It has 86 members, none of whom are Black. In this era, that seems a bit odd. They're promising that they'll do better. A lot of people don't believe it. Major players like Amazon, Netflix, and WarnerMedia have cut ties.

Tom Cruise Returns His Three Golden Globe Trophies To Join Protest Against HFPA

EXCLUSIVE: Add Tom Cruise to the chorus of outrage against the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Deadline hears that the actor today has delivered back to the HFPA the three Golden Globe trophies he has won over the years.

The trophies just sent to HFPA headquarters are the Best Actor prize he won for Jerry Maguire, the Best Actor prize he won for Born on the Fourth of July and the Best Supporting Actor prize he won for Magnolia. This is a new tack, but I wouldn’t be surprised if others follow his lead and that the reception area of the HFPA could be crammed with golden trophies.

Sources said this just happened, as the Golden Globes house of cards continues to crumble and NBC canceled next year’s broadcast. Cruise becomes the latest star to speak out, including Netflix, Amazon and NBC among others over the slow crawl the organization is making to reform its lack of diversity.

Golden Globes 2022 Canceled On NBC As HFPA Struggles To Reform To Hollywood’s Stipulations

There will be no Golden Globes on NBC in 2022, as the besieged Hollywood Foreign Press Association continues to falter in reforming itself to the satisfaction of Hollywood studios and stakeholders.

“We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform,” the Comcast-owned network said this morning. “However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right. As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes. Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.”





Sure to dramatically shuffle the awards-season deck as Tinseltown and America gingerly come out of the coronavirus pandemic, the decision to shutter the 2022 Globes was made earlier Monday as WarnerMedia joined Netflix and Amazon this weekend in cutting off ties with the HFPA due to their collective lack of confidence in the nonprofit group to enact serious systemic reform.

In the fog of upheaval right now, it is unclear whether NBC will be paying the HFPA the $60 million annual fee for the 2022 right to air Globes, which is produced by dick clark productions. NBCUniversal inked a new eight-year deal with the HFPA and dcp in 2018 to continue its long-term broadcasting of the ceremony until 2026 with the inflated price tag.

Having seen its reforms and relevance crash and burn for the time being, the only statement so far from the HFPA today was a tweet on international box office just before the news of the 2022 shuttering broke

A magnet for controversy for decades, the Globes have been on increasingly shaky footing this year since it was revealed just before February’s semi-virtual shindig that the HFPA has zero Black members.

Hit by a savvy campaign by Time’s Up on the eve of the 78th Globes in February, a trio of HFPA brass tried to mitigate events by taking to the stage and promising to increase representation and adopt polices of great inclusion. To say that that attempt went over badly is an understatement of blockbuster proportions.

Since then, things have gone from bad to horrible as the HFPA leadership has applied one Band-id after another as Hollywood’s top studios and talent have expressed displeasure with the group overall.

Ellen Pompeo Pens Open Letter To HFPA, “White Hollywood” Amid Golden Globes Controversy: “Pull Up, Show Up And Get This Issue Resolved”





On May 6, around 75 of the insular HFPA’s 86 members voted for an inclusion and overhaul proposal the group’s board put forth at the beginning of that week in hopes of reframing the narrative. Chatter over the weekend, especially when Netflix’s co-CEO Ted Sarandos announced that the streamer wouldn’t engage with the HFPA until real reform was in place, was making it loud and clear that it was too little, too late.

The admittedly first-step reforms are a 50% increase in membership in the next 18 months, hiring of a CEO and other top governance positions (though no replacement for long-term General Counsel/Chief Operating Officer George Goeckner is in the cards) and conduct and ethics measures. After the 78th Globes and before the latest vote, the HFPA saw racially offensive remarks from a former president and newly minted Diversity and Inclusion advisor Dr. Shaun Harper and fixer supreme/Scandal inspiration Judy Smith both walk out in frustration last month.

With the events of the past week and the announcement by NBC today, the duo’s exit looks positively prophetic.

And I was so eager to see Liz Olsen and Kathryn Hahn get rewarded for WandaVision.

I'm guessing they both got paychecks.

I'm not even going to read any articles to find out what the details of this controversy are because I already know that the Golden Globes are moronic. A group of 100 nobodies decides to give out awards. Who gives a shit? Well, schedule the ceremony in January, and get TBS/TNT, then NBC, to televise it. Now all the celebrities show up to be on TV, and --surprise!-- your POS awards now matter.

I thought the Hollywood foreign press was diverse since it is or was foreign?

Sucks since it is more fun to watch than the Oscars.

No black members. Mostly European. And very corrupt.

They do have a few. They paraded out an Indian female member during the telecast this year to talk about their plan to become more diverse in the future.

More than a few. I did only find a list of the 2015 members, but about half of those members would be considered "diverse" by American standards, but without black members, which is odd since Sub-Saharan Africa is foreign, pretty big and with a lot of people. They managed to get one member from Sub-Saharan Africa, a white woman from South Africa.
Looks like not a lot has changed since 2015, but to be fair, the demographic in most countries doesn't equal the American demographic. There is no excuse to not include members from Africa, but not having black members from Poland, Italy, Switzerland, Germany or Japan is not insensitive that's just demographics.

Even if it not a diverse voting body a lot of movies with minorities got nominated and a lot have won awards.

How does Tom Cruise return his Globes to the HFPA? Do they have an office with a reception desk where Tom can just leave them? Does he have to find out the home address of the "journalist" currently serving as head of the group and take it directly to their house? Is there a post office box that he has to send them to? Just curious.

I have no problem being part of a cult that tortures its members who aren't superstars, but the HFPA is where I draw the line.

That's a fair criticism.
