The Golden Globes Will Still Give Out Awards This Year Despite NBC Not Airing Them

October 12, 2021 / Posted by:

Looks like Emily In Paris really did to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association what The Weeknd wished he did to the Grammys. JK, it wasn’t all that unilingual semi-fashionable brat’s fault but she did draw a lot of attention. This year the Golden Globes, which are given by the members of the HFPA, were exposed by the LA Times who revealed that there was not one single Black person in their organization as well as “ethical lapses” in the HFPA including accusations of self-dealing. *Cough* Emily In Paris *COUGH!* The HFPA apologized and promised to do better but the pile-on had begun. PR firms told their A-list clients to ignore the Golden Globes until they make big changes. Then NBC canceled the 2022 broadcast and Tom Cruise caught some free attention by returning three of his own Golden Globes. Well, just because no one cares about them anymore doesn’t mean the HFPA won’t go through with a party, Deadline says that even though it won’t be on TV the Golden Globes still plan to give out awards.

Scarlett Johansson Says It’s Time To “Step Back” From The Golden Globes (UPDATE: NBC Has Shit-Canned The 2022 Ceremony)

May 10, 2021 / Posted by:

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization behind the Golden Globes, has been getting absolutely shit on recently. Major PR firms are telling their clients to just ignore the HFPA until it makes changes to become more diverse and inclusive, including adding more people of color as members and putting restrictions on gifts and money to members (see: the Emily In Paris mess). Deadline says that Netflix, home to Emily in Paris, has cut ties with the organization altogether and actors like Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo are dragging the HFPA too. Well, ScarJo is a woman of color so she’s looking out for her own!

More Than 100 PR Firms Told Their Clients To Ignore The Golden Globes Until They Promised To Follow-Through On Their Diversity Commitment

March 16, 2021 / Posted by:

Last month, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association addressed the big ol’ elephant in the room when three of their members, Vice President Helen Hoehne, Chair Meher Tatna, and President Ali Sar, took to the stage at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards and promised that they’d finally get serious about diversity. Something made all the more obvious by the work that was snubbed this year. The HFPA swore they were going to do something, and they did do something. For example, the Los Angeles Times discovered that the HFPA voted not to hire a diversity consultant. That’s technically doing something, right?

Much like the rest of us, a whole lot of Hollywood PR firms are sick of hearing the HFPA cross their hearts and swear they care about their diversity problem, so they actually did something. Specifically, they instructed their clients to not go to HFPA events until they commit to real meaningful change.

Ratings For The 78th Golden Globe Awards Fell To A Record Low

March 2, 2021 / Posted by:

A whole lot of people have been stuck inside since last March with literally nothing better to do than sit on the couch, alternating between staring at the big screen (television) and the small screen (phone). That sounds like the perfect storm for TV awards shows. A captive audience who has nothing but extremely low expectations and the time to watch a 3-hour trophy show. But unfortunately, the HFPA and NBC aren’t congratulating each other on the record-breaking TV ratings and that’s because the 2021 Golden Globe Awards wasn’t able to wrangle enough viewers to prevent it from being one of the lowest-watched ceremonies in recent history.

What Am I Looking At? The Golden Globes “Red Carpet” Posed Some Interesting Questions

March 1, 2021 / Posted by:

Last night’s Golden Globes ceremony was a haphazard Choose Your Own Adventure type situation where the stars could either get themselves all dolled up or they could choose to just Zoom it in wearing whichever housefit happened to be on top of the clothes pile. It was a confusing, disjointed show made even more so by the fact that I had forgotten I cut my cable a couple of months ago so I had to watch it unfold on Twitter. There were two red carpets, one in NY and one in LA, there was the Instyle Magazine elevator (above feat. Kate Hudson, a charcuterie board, and her brother Oliver Hudson), there were random elevators, hotel balconies, backyards, and portals into other dimensions. We’ve had a year of pandemic awards shows, you’d think they’d have figured it out by now. It should be obvious that they’re a bad idea!

Jamie Lee Curtis Stunted On Everyone In Yellow While Jodie Foster Accepted Her Golden Globe In Fancy Pajamas

March 1, 2021 / Posted by:

It seems like that one brush with the Fiji Water Girl was enough and Jamie Lee Curtis was never going to let someone try and upstage her at an award show again. She showed up to the 2021 Golden Globes looking like the sexiest pro-gut-flora yogurt spokesperson you have ever fucking seen. It was a great juxtaposition since Jamie presented an award to Jodie Foster who accepted with her wife in their fanciest of pajamas.
