- 79th Golden Globe Awards will happen on January 9
- The nominations have been introduced on December 13
- The awards will happen in Los Angeles
A stripped-down Golden Globes will go forward with no viewers or media on Sunday, because the occasion historically often known as Hollywood’s greatest social gathering reels from an business boycott over moral lapses by its organizers. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association – which votes on the Globes – has been accused of racism, sexism, bullying and corruption, with tv rights-holder NBC final 12 months pulling the plug on its annual awards broadcast.
Nonetheless, honors in movie and tv will probably be introduced Sunday from the Globes’ ordinary Beverly Hills lodge venue, in a program the group stated was set to focus on “the long-established philanthropy work of the HFPA.”
“Over the past 25 years, the HFPA has donated $50 million to more than 70 entertainment-related charities, film restoration, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts,” the group stated in an announcement.
No viewers will probably be current for the 79th Golden Globe Awards, the group stated, citing well being considerations because of the coronavirus pandemic and the quickly spreading Omicron variant.
The Golden Globes have historically been second in significance solely to the Oscars in Hollywood’s movie awards season, however their credibility has been thrown into query – and their future plunged into doubt.
Many Tinseltown publicists and studios refused to take part on this 12 months’s version, and A-listers publicly distanced themselves from the embattled group, no less than till reforms are made.
The HFPA introduced its annual nominations final month, with Kenneth Branagh’s childhood-inspired “Belfast” and Jane Campion’s darkish Western “The Power of the Dog” topping the choices with seven nods apiece.
But advertisements and billboards boasting of Golden Globe nomination tallies have been notably absent in Los Angeles this winter.
The group – consisting of simply over 100 leisure writers linked to overseas publications – has rushed by means of reforms, together with admitting its greatest ever annual consumption of latest members final 12 months.
The HFPA range row was triggered by a Los Angeles Times investigation final 12 months displaying that the group on the time didn’t have a single Black member.
