The awarding of the Golden Globes should also be done without a TV gala. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organizes film and television awards, was announced on Friday. In May, US broadcaster NBC announced that it would stop airing the program next year. The background to this is the criticism of the awarding of the Globes, for example due to the lack of diversity and the criteria of transparency of members.
According to organizers, the nominees will be announced on December 13 and the 79 Golden Globes will be awarded on January 9, 2022. There was no information on whether the issue would be issued in any form.
In the spring, the association voted for reforms in its own ranks, promising more diversity and transparency. For many critics, however, these steps did not go far enough.
