Unanimously shunned by Hollywood because of several scandals related to their operation, the Golden Globes have reviewed their copy and announce their return next year.
Racism, sexism, corruption … Splashed by a series of scandals, the Golden Globes announced Tuesday their return to television in 2023, where they will try to regain their former glory after a last edition largely shunned by Hollywood.
“We are pleased to announce the return of the Golden Globes to (the channel) NBC,” said Helen Hoehne, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which is the jury of these, in a press release. price.
At the start of 2022, the ceremony took place without an audience or television. Their usual partner, NBC, had withdrawn from broadcasting the event because the HFPA was the target of accusations that seriously undermined its reputation.
A series of reforms
More than 100 officers had written to the HFPA in the spring of 2021 asking it to end “discriminatory and unprofessional behavior, ethical lapses and corruption charges.”
Faced with this scandal, the organization quickly announced a series of reforms, including an unprecedented recruitment of new members to improve the representation of minorities within it.
“The HFPA is committed to meaningful change and to supporting programs that put diversity, inclusion and transparency first,” the organization said Tuesday.
In 2021, the Los Angeles Times had investigated its functioning and had revealed in particular that it did not have any black people within it. Since then, the organization has notably renewed its members, including 103 new ones. But critics, such as stars Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo have publicly denounced these reforms as insufficient, while Tom Cruise has sent the organization its three Golden Globes in protest.
